Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that the Congress and the communist parties are akin to each other, which stand up for the corrupt, the criminals, the infiltrators and the divisive forces rather than for the people.
Addressing Vijay Sankalp rallies in two assembly constituencies – Baghbasa and Kalyanpur-Pramod Nagar, and a roadshow in another constituency of the poll-bound Tripura, Yogi appealed to the people to elect a BJP government in the state for the second time on the basis of the government’s performance in carrying out development works the last five years and reject those that cheated them.
“Both Congress and the Communist parties have come to make a dent in your security. Beware of them,” the BJP’s star campaigner remarked. On the other hand, the people of Tripura welcomed the UP CM with the same warmth and enthusiasm with which he was greeted in Gujarat and other poll-bound states in the past.
Speaking at his first public meeting in favour of BJP candidate Jadab Lal Nath contesting from Bagbasa, CM Yogi said, “The works of the double engine government in the last five years have given Tripura a different identity. The real form of PM Modi’s original mantra Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas is visible on the ground in Tripura.”
Speaking at his second rally in Kalyanpur-Pramod Nagar assembly constituency of Khowai district, Yogi sought votes for the sitting BJP MLA and candidate Pinaki Das Chowdhary. He said that in 2018, BJP had sought support for Tripura’s prosperity and overall development.
“For 35 years, the people of Communist and Congress parties denied state development. They looted the money meant for development in Tripura. They left the youth unemployed, farmers in distress, and put the safety of mothers and sisters at risk. The benefits of the schemes were not available. There was an atmosphere of chaos and insecurity,” he remarked.
The CM added: “For the first time, the double engine government of the BJP provided development at the speed of a bullet train in the state and the benefits of the welfare schemes reached poor governance without discrimination. Giving 33 per cent job reservation to women is a miracle,” CM Yogi said.
Yogi said that during the UPA regime there was a new scam almost everyday, referring to the coal scam, the 2G scam and the Commonwealth scam, stressing that scams had become the identity of the Congress.
“Today, when the youth are getting employment, development is taking place and faith is being respected, the Congress wants to conspire with the communists to sabotage the process”, CM Yogi pointed out. Now ministers camp in the Northeast and report to PM Modi after ensuring the benefits of the schemes.
