Amid the row over Yogi Adityanath’s controversial remarks on ‘abba jaan’, UP BJP has now released a new cartoon using the phrase to take a dig at Owaisi and Akhilesh Yadav.
The Uttar Pradesh BJP has come up with a cartoon using CM Yogi Adityanath’s controversial ‘abba jaan’ remark to take pot-shots at AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav.
In the cartoon, UP BJP takes a dig at Owaisi and Akhilesh Yadav by interpreting them as Mughal emperor Jehangir and Anarkali who are misusing ration meant for the poor while ‘abba jaan’ Mulayam Singh Yadav looks on.
Akhilesh Yadav and Owaisi, along with several other opposition leaders, had hit out at Yogi Adityanath over his recent controversial remarks during an event in UP.
“Under PM Modi leadership, there is no place for appeasement politics…. Before 2017 was everyone able to get ration? Earlier only those who used to say ‘abba jaan’ were digesting the ration,” Adityanath had said in Kushinagar.
This led to a major furore across opposition parties, who accused Adityanath of blatant communalism. Owaisi had sarcastically referred to Yogi Adityanath’s ‘abba jaan’ remark saying it was a polarising tactic on part of ‘Baba’.
On the other hand, Akhilesh Yadav said, “Even after over four years, this government is changing names and colours, claiming the work done by the SP government as its own. As they know that their government is on its way out, the language of its head has changed.”
