Only a Ram Bhakt will rule Delhi: Yogi

Only a Ram Bhakt will rule Delhi: Yogi

Gorakhpur, May 28 (UNI) Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that only a Ram Bhakt will govern Delhi and that people will dump Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP), which follow the politics of appeasement, in obscurity in the 2024 Lok Sabha election.
Addressing an election rally in Pipiganj in support of Gorakhpur Lok Sabha constituency MP and BJP candidate Ravi Kishan Shukla, the CM labeled the Congress and SP as 'Ram Drohis' and said that the Lok Sabha elections 2024 are between 'Ram Bhakts' and 'Ram Drohis'.
He said during his election tours across the country, he observed widespread support for PM Modi with a common sentiment resonating from all areas, 'Jo Ram Ko Laye Hain, Hum Unko Layenge.'
Yogi said Ram Drohis are those who deny the existence of Lord Ram, attack his devotees, and undermine the significance of the Ram temple whereas Ram Bhakts are the ones who have enshrined Lord Ram in his magnificent temple, ending devotees' wait of 500 years. "The Ram temple symbolizes India's enduring faith," he said.
Criticising Congress and SP for their views on the Ram Temple, a symbol of pride and reverence for all Indians, he said, "Congress says that the construction of the temple has sent a wrong message globally and should not have been built, whereas SP dismisses the temple as 'useless'. The leaders of both parties seem to have lost their minds."
The CM said, "The Ram Bhakts have also built an international Airport named after Maharishi Valmiki in Ayodhya, a waiting room named after Shri Ram's friend Nishadraj and a restaurant named after Mata Shabari. Furthermore, they have also installed a 56-foot statue in honour of Nishadraj in Prayagraj", he pointed out, stressing, that no follower of Nishadraj can align with the traitors of Ram."
He cautioned people against the mischievous designs of those who once ordered opening fire on Ram devotees.
Yogi said, "Adversaries of Lord Ram have never found lasting peace. Regardless of their stature or power, they have always faced downfall."
He said, "Ram devotees, with the blessings of the Lord, are focused on progress and development. Today, Ram devotees are working towards the nation's development, from expanding roads from two lanes to twelve, building AIIMS, medical colleges, IITs, IIMs, and Airports, to providing tap water to every household and promoting industrialisation."
The CM said, "The Modi government, devoted to Ram, has constructed homes for four crore impoverished people, with more to come after the government is formed again on June 4. Initiatives like the Ayushman Yojana for healthcare and the Ujjwala Yojana for providing free LPG connections are a few contributions of this Ram Bhakta government."
He announced that once the government of Ram devotees is re-elected on June 4, Ayushman cards will be made available to everyone over 70 years of age. "Congress had removed the late Veer Bahadur Singh from Chief Minister's post because of his devotion to Lord Ram and his role in opening the lock of the Ram temple in Ayodhya," he said.
Yogi contrasted the achievements of the Modi government with the misrule prevalent during the Congress and SP regimes. "During the SP's rule in the state and Congress's rule at the centre, the poor suffered from hunger, farmers committed suicide, youth migrated for jobs, and daughters and businessmen were unsafe," he alleged.
He said, "There was a lack of housing and water provisions for the poor, and innocent children died from diseases like encephalitis. Terrorist incidents were rampant, with attacks on the Ram temple in Ayodhya and the Sankatmochan temple in Varanasi occurring during the SP government and bombings in Delhi, Mumbai, and Ahmedabad happening under Congress rule."
The CM said that the Congress government always blamed terrorists from across the border for terror activities within India whenever the issue was raised in the parliament. "However, under Modi's leadership, terrorism and Naxalism have been eradicated from the country, while India's global respect has increased manifold," he said.
He asserted, "The Modi government is making the country safe and powerful whereas the Congress-SP alliance is conspiring against India. According to their manifesto, if they come to power, they will implement personal laws akin to Taliban rule, snatching the freedom of daughters to go to school or market, and confining them within the four walls of their houses, wearing a veil."
Yogi said, "India will be governed by the Constitution created by Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, and not by 'Sharia law' as proposed by the Congress and the SP. They will not be allowed to tamper with this Constitution under any circumstances."
He added, "Congress and SP seek power to loot the nation and exploit the common people and also intend to take away reservation rights of the backward and scheduled castes and give away to Muslims, which will not be permitted."
He cited Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, who asserted that reservations cannot be based on 'religion'.
The CM said that he considers the people of this area to be his family and prefers not to deliver formal speeches here. Instead, he focuses on the struggles the people have endured and the positive changes that have resulted from their efforts.
He expressed his pleasure at repeatedly returning to the area, noting the transformation from the broken and poor roads of pre-2017 to the strong, shining four-lane roads of today.
He also mentioned the setting up of schools, inter colleges, degree colleges, stadiums, and flood protection facilities, expressing satisfaction in seeing the local residents benefit from these developments.
The CM expressed gratitude for being elected MP five times and for their support in electing Ravi Kishan Shukla as MP in the last election. He exuded confidence that the people would again elect Ravi Kishan with an overwhelming majority.
