Opposition doing communal, caste politics by raking up anti-Ram sentiments: Yogi

Opposition doing communal, caste politics by raking up anti-Ram sentiments: Yogi

Lucknow, Aug 22 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday hit out at the opposition over their anti-Ram stance and accused them of indulging in communal and caste politics when the entire country is battling the pandemic and the governments are doing their best to serve the nation.
"The people of Rome too are chanting Ram Ram and raking up Parshuram as the party had always opposed Ram temple. They are doing it just for their political sake as this party had opposed Ram Setu and doing the politics of division between communities and caste ," he said without taking any names .
He also said that the party which fired on the kar seveks and another party which had given a call for Tilak -Taraju were also showing their concern and trying to create a caste division in the state , he said while referring to the recent Brahmin dispute in the state.

The CM was speaking in the state Assembly here amid boycott by the Opposition members over law and order, corona and other issues.
Mr Adityanath in his over one hour long address, said that the opposition parties are raking up Lord Pashuram issue without realising that both-- Lord Ram and Lord Pashuram-- were incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

"It was a historic day on August 5 this year when Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation for the Ram temple at Ayodhya which fulfilled the 492 years long dream of every Hindu . The Supreme Court verdict of November 9, 2019 giving the entire land to the Ram Janmabhoomi proved the strength of the country's democracy and judiciary ," he claimed.
Citing examples, he said on November 9, 1989 the shilanayas of the Ram temple was fine by the saints and exactly 40 years later on the same day the historic judgement was delivered. Similarly, August 5 , the day construction work of the Ram temple started, on the same day one year back, the government scrapped Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir to make it as an integral part of the country.
The CM claimed that in coming days Ayodhya will emerge as an international city with Ram temple and other infrastructure and it will change the entire economy of the state. "The Ram temple will be the pride of the state as well as the country but these opposition parties are doing everything to create a hurdle" he alleged.

Lauding the Doordarshan for telecasting the epic serials Ramayana and Mahabharata during the lockdown period, the CM said such steps shows how the people of the country love Ram and Krishna but the opposition were not ready to accept it.

Calling upon all the BJP and members of the coalition partners, Mr Yogi said that just around-a-year-and-a-half is left for the crucial assembly polls in the state hence they should pull up their socks to develop their areas." All members should make their efforts to provide electricity and road to all the villages of their constituencies while panchayat bhawans should be constructed so that optical fibre reaches every place ," he asked the members while clawing that there is no shortage of funds for the development works.

After the address, BSP leader Lalji Verma tried to speak but was not allowed by the speaker. Later, the house was adjourned sine die.

Bhopal, Oct 24 (UNI) In a fusillade at his Congress predecessor, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan alleged on Saturday that Mr Kamal Nath is uttering untruth and speaking of cultivators’ welfare at a juncture when his dispensation is history.
“He did not fulfil earlier promises and is now attempting to confuse by issuing fresh assurances. Let him answer why he did not draft any scheme for tillers’ well-being while he was in the saddle. Recently, a Congress bigwig averred that Shivraj is hungry and naked while Mr Nath is India’s second-best industrialist,” Mr Chouhan conveyed via social media.
