INDORE: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today assured Hindus refugees from Pakistan in the state that the Narendra Modi government will complete all the formalities to ensure that they continue to live legally in India.      

"As long as Shivraj is in Madhya Pradesh, no Pakistani Hindu will be asked to leave the state. Modi's government has decided that Hindu refugees will continue to stay permanently in India and for the purpose all necessary legal formalities will be done," Chouhan said at a programme here.       

The Centre would organise a camp on February 19-20 for Indore-based Pakistani Hindus to complete the necessary formalities, he said.          

"These refugees left Pakistan as it became difficult for them to live in the neighbouring country with their honour intact," he said.     

Chouhan alleged that the UPA government had ordered them to leave the country, but the BJP government in the state "provided them shelter".         

Earlier in the day, Chouhan, BJP's mayoral candidate for Indore Malini Gaud and other party candidates in civic election campaigned and conducted a road show across the city.
