She even added, “It seems that BJP wanted to instigate communal tension in Western Uttar Pradesh to gain political mileage but it failed miserably as the media has debunked the myth of Kairana exodus."

Alleging that there have been attacks on Hindu families living in the vicinity, most of the properties owned by Hindus have been deserted and the town is devoid of any dwellers.
