The British looted this country first, and then the Congress followed suit, said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath launched an attack on Congress on Sunday, describing the party as the mother of terrorism in the country.
The UP CM made the controversial remark as he launched several development projects in Kushinagar.
While addressing a programme, the CM called Congress “the mother of terrorism in the country”. He added that people who hurt the country should not be tolerated.
Yogi also accused Congress of insulting the faith in Ram and giving shelter to the mafia.
In contrast, the BJP heals the citizens, helps construct a grand temple of Lord Ram, and sends the mafia to where they belong, added Yogi.
“Congress is the mother of terrorism in the country. There is no need to tolerate people who hurt the country. Congress gives disease, insults faith in Lord Ram and gives shelter to the mafia. But the BJP heals the citizens, paves the way for the construction of a grand temple of Lord Shri Ram, and sends the mafia to the place they deserve. If there is BJP, there is respect for everyone, there is respect for faith,” news agency ANI cited Yogi as saying.
“Apart from disease, unemployment, mafia raj, and corruption, what did the Congress, SP, and BSP governments give to the state? Under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, there is no place for appeasement politics…Before 2017 was everyone able to get ration?… Earlier those who used to say ‘Abba Jaan’ digested the ration for the poor,” Yogi added.
He further criticised the Opposition for appeasement politics and corruption and said the people of the state should reject a “pro-Taliban, dynastic, casteist mentality” that targets the devotees of Lord Ram.
“The people of the state should not tolerate the pro-Taliban, casteist, dynastic mentality that shot at the devotees of Lord Ram. Remember! Wherever there is a scorpion, it will bite. Modi ji has abolished triple talaq in the country, but you must have read the statement of some Samajwadi Party leaders. They have supported the acts of the Taliban. The pro-Pakistan terrorists today do not find any hideout anywhere in the country. In 2012, the SP government started withdrawing the cases of terrorists,” said the UP CM.
“Nehru did not believe in Ram. Indira ji opened fire on the saints. Sonia ji denied the existence of Ram,” he added.
Assembly Elections in Uttar Pradesh are set to take place next year.
The BJP won an overwhelming victory in the 2017 Assembly Election, grabbing 312 seats. In the election for the 403-member Assembly, the party secured 39.67 percent of the vote. The Samajwadi Party won 47 seats, BSP – 19, and Congress – seven.
