Pratapgarh: The exodus of Hindus from Kairana was a result of “pseudo-secularism and appeasement policies” of different governments in Uttar Pradesh, BJP MP Yogi Adityanath said today.

“Exodus of Hindus from Kairana is a result of pseudo-secularism and appeasement policies pursued by different governments in UP…Because of this, the population of Hindus which was 68 per cent has come down to 8 per cent,” he alleged.

The Gorakhpur MP was talking to media persons on the sidelines of a programme here.

On his name being mentioned as BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in the state, he said he was not in the race for any post but was working as a mission.

Asked about the Ram Mandir issue, he said it was a matter of faith for all Hindus.
