UP Polls 2017: Kairana, Moradabad will be under curfew if I win, says BJP MLA

Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Thana Bhawan Suresh Rana who is fighting for the party in the upcoming assembly polls said that curfew will be imposed in Kairana, Moradabad and Deoband if he elected again.

Rana, an accused in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots, had made the remarks at a gathering in his constituency on Saturday.

“If I emerge as the winner (in UP polls), the curfew will be imposed in Kairana, Deoband and Moradabad,” he said.


As his remarks are triggering controversy, Rana today clarified that the comments were meant for goons who have spread terror in the state.

“What I meant was many people have planned to leave Western UP fearing the terror spread by goons and robbers. There is no city in that region where people have not planned to move out due to the fear of these goons,” Rana said.

“when BJP forms the government in UP, these goons who are part of the mafia, whose actions are feared and who forced residents to flee will have to leave the state. The residents of UP won’t fear to leave. The goons will have to leave the state,” he added.
