Govt. looking into migration of Hindus from Pak to India: R.P.N Singh

New Delhi, Apr 9 (ANI): Minister of State for Home R.P.N Singh today said the government is looking into the issue of migration of Hindus from Pakistan to India.

The statement comes in the wake of media reports pointing to alleged persecution of the minority community in the neighbouring country.

When asked about Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's criticism of the Congress, Singh said it is not a big deal if non-Congress Chief Ministers criticise the party.

"I did not listen to his (Narendra Modi) speech. There are several chief ministers in this country and I do not have time to listen to the speeches of all chiefs," Singh told media on the sidelines of the Valour Day function of the CRPF here.

"If he has said something about Congress then our Gujarat spokesperson will respond to it. It is nothing new that chief ministers who are not from Congress speak against the party," he added.

Modi, who addressed captains of industry in Kolkata, lashed out at the UPA Government for neglecting non-Congress ruled states.

"If you are a UPA state, you get a (certain) kind of treatment, and, if you are a non-UPA state, you get a different (kind of) treatment," he said.

Emphasizing that the discrimination by the Manmohan Singh-led UPA Government is adversely affecting development in non-Congress ruled states, Modi said: " It is due to the discriminatory attitude of the Centre that many states are not being able to create wealth and grow according to their potential."
