Yogi Adityanath, Bharatiya Janata Party’s lead campaigner for the by-polls in UP, made yet another controversial statement on Sunday as he blamed people of a minority religion for the state’s recent communal tensions.

Yogi Adityanath, Bharatiya Janata Party’s lead campaigner for the by-polls in Uttar Pradesh, made yet another controversial statement on Sunday as he blamed people of a minority religion for the state’s recent communal tensions.

“There have been 450 riots cases in West UP in two-and-a-half years of Samajwadi Party because the population of a particular community is rising manifold. Why there are no riots in Eastern UP? you can easily understand,” he said during a rally in Noida.

"In places where there are 10 to 20% minorities, stray communal incidents take place. Where there are 20 to 35% of them, serious communal riots take place and where they are more than 35%, there is no place for non-Muslims," the Lok Sabha member said.
