Moments after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar condemned the hate campaign against North Indians in Gujarat, following the emergence of an exodus like situation in Gujarat, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given a statement on the incident asserting that he has personally spoken to the Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani in the matter and everything is fine in the state.
"I have personally talked to the CM of Gujarat, Vijay Rupani and he has specifically assured me that no incident has taken place Gujarat for the past three days. It is a peaceful region and country's developing state. People who are jealous of the developments in Gujarat are spreading these rumours because they don't have anything better to do. Some leaders from North India inquired about the incidents in Gujarat with me, and I told them the same thing.," declared UP CM Yogi Adityanath in an official statement.
While addressing the media, CM Yogi went on to reassure that the 'Gujarat government has been taking the needful steps for the security of the people in the state. People have nothing better to do today are trying to instigate other people to involve in the matter. Strict actions should be taken against such people'.
In an official press release by the UP government, CM Yogi Adityanath urged the people to have faith in the government that is ensuring that every citizen is safe and secure in the state.
Earlier on Monday, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had also spoken to the Gujarat Chief Minister and the chief secretary of Gujarat regarding the issue.
“I have spoken to Gujarat CM and to the chief secretary of Gujarat. We are in touch with them about their security. If anyone committed a crime he should definitely get punishment", he had said.
Meanwhile, a day after Congress' local Taluka Panchayat member MV Thakore was seen in a video threatening non-Gujaratis to leave the state, the Home Minister of Gujarat, Pradeep Sinh Jadeja, appealed to the migrants to stay back in the state.
