Talking to reporters in Meerut, Akhilesh said many victims have left the camps, and the rest would leave soon, and the district officials have been asked to ensure the victims are sent home safely.

Apparently, Rahul Gandhi’s surprise visit to Muzaffarnagar has triggered a fresh round of sparring between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress.

Responding to questions on Rahul's visit, Akhilesh said if the former had given any suggestions, his government would have considered it.

"We are not a party who shows black flags. We are connected to the youth and fight communalism," he said.

Akhilesh's father and party Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav earlier lashed out at the Congress and BJP claiming there were no riot victims in the camps, but supporters of the two parties who were staying there as part of a conspiracy to tarnish the image of his party's government in Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, commenting on Aam Aadmi Party's decision to form government in Delhi, Akhilesh said, "Let the elections come. We will see."
