A volunteer further added that he and his fellow volunteers have been inspired by US President Donald Trump's actions.
Inspired by newly elected US President Donald Trump’s anti-migration rhetoric, some youths in UP have formed ‘Trump Sena’ to stop ‘Hindu Migration’ from state. The newly formed group showed its first support for BJP at Amit Shah’s rally in Hapur’s Pilkuwa on Friday. Pilkuwa, falls under Dhaulana assembly seat in Hapur district from where the party has given ticket to its four-time MP, Dr Ramesh Chand Tomar.
Speaking to The Indian Express, a volunteer said that Trump Sena has been formed to end atrocities being committed on Hindus in western UP. He claimed that Hindus are being forced to leave their properties behind and migrate from state. The leader further added that he and his fellow volunteers have been inspired by US President Donald Trump’s actions. “We also support Yogi Adityanath for giving a call to end migration of Hindus from western UP. We understand Dr. Ramesh Chand Tomar’s concerns how demography of assembly segments in western UP is being systematically changed to suppress Hindu community. Therefore, Trump Sena has been formed to stop all this,” he was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
Another volunteer said that Trump Sena members will pan out in entire state starting from western UP to assure their support to Hindus. He said that any person receiving any kind of threats should feel free to contact them. “We will stand behind them and given them full protection. A lot of youths are joining us every day and soon we will become a formidable force and not let atrocities committed on Hindus. We will mobilize youths and also start campaign against ‘love jihad’,” volunteers said.
Some volunteers argued that when Maulanas can issue fatwas to support Muslim candidates, they also can ask people to support BJP and Hindu candidates. When Hindus are being threatened, we have all the right to stand for them.

The volunteers further added that only BJP is supporting Hindus and therefore the organisation is in support of the saffron party.
“Only BJP can come out in support of Hindus and therefore we are supporting its candidates. We will travel to all parts of Uttar Pradesh and seek votes for BJP”, volunteers further added. The step even falls in line with BJP’s manifesto which says a special police squad will be formed to stop migration from western UP.
