BJP victory in UP outcome of polarisation, will have implications on J&K: CPI (M)

Srinagar, Mar 20 (UNI) Alleging that the victory of BJP in Uttar Pradesh was an outcome of polarisation, the CPI (M) today said it will have negative implications on Jammu and Kashmir.
The recent landslide victory of BJP in twin states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, though not quite unexpected, is certainly a phenomenon which needs to be analysed objectively, senior leader of CPI(M) and MLA Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami said in a statement here.
However, the victory of BJP in the recent elections and the crowning of Yogi Adityanath as UP's Chief Minister will have serious implications on the J&K situation, he alleged.
He said while the corporate media and sections of political commentators describe the BJPs victory as a tectonic shift in Indian politics, some analysts distort the elements which went into the BJPs electoral success.
The stern and undeniable fact is that Prime Minister Narindera Modi and BJP national president Amit Shah left no stone unturned in polarizing the situation and tried their best to consolidate the Hindu vote and combined it with a wide range of caste coalition, he alleged.
He said in the aftermath of the elections, the more surprising and, in fact, shocking was the selection of Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of UP, who faces trial on charges of incitement to communal rioting and attempt to murder.
The choice of Mr Adityanath, who has a history of making controversial and divisive statements clearly shows that BJP has dismantled the façade of moderation and has come out in the open, with the real communal agenda of Hindutva and Hindu Rashtra, Mr Tarigami said.
He said it is also clear that BJP has its eye on 2019 Lok Sabha elections, for which the communal cauldron, which Mr Adityanath could keep simmering, is necessary. BJP is, undoubtedly, building up its divisive agenda for the purpose. Those individuals, groups and parties who had illusions about RSS-BJP combine and thought that perhaps the combine will soften its stand and modify its ideology, must have now realised that the forces, which feed on communal politics can not leave or change their original agenda.
