Why do caste issues come up before every poll? asks Yogi

Wednesday, 15 May 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Questioning why issues like caste come up before every election, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said the opposition parties were so shocked with the support that the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Prime Minister were getting across the country that they had started asking about Narendra Modi’s caste.

“Why is the opposition not raising development issues and asking the government what it has done in the last five years. Instead of raising people-related questions, they are questioning the Prime Minister’s caste, which is irrelevant,” Yogi said while addressing a series of rallies in Ballia, Bansgaon, Khajani, Hata and Doharia on Tuesday.

The Chief Minister said that working on the principle of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’, the Prime Minister had extended the benefits of government schemes to people of all caste and religion.

“If the Prime Minister is not differentiating in the implementation of government policies and schemes, why is the opposition raising question about his caste? Yogi asked, reacting to statements of Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati that Modi was not a real backward.

“The Prime Minister has worked tirelessly for the last five years without any leave so that the people of the marginalised class get a house. He launched Mudra Yojna so that people could start their own business. The policies and schemes of the Modi government have transformed the lives of people and have been appreciated across the world,” Yogi said.

About the achievements of his government, Yogi said that law and order had improved and this was reflected by the way Mayawati was sharing dais with Samajwadi Party leaders, referring to the Guest House incident of 1993 in which SP workers had attacked Mayawati after the BSP withdrew support from the SP government in UP.

Yogi appealed to the people to vote for the BJP, saying their votes would strengthen Modi at the Centre.

Polling in this region will be held in the last phase on May 19.
