Congress, Communist parties two sides of same coin: CM Yogi

Wednesday, 08 February 2023 | PNS | Lucknow

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said that the Congress and the Communist parties are two sides of the same coin as they stand up for the corrupt, criminals, infiltrators and divisive forces instead of the public. 

Addressing Vijay Sankalp rallies in two assembly constituencies (Bagbasa and Kalyanpur-Pramod Nagar) and a roadshow in another constituency of poll-bound Tripura, Yogi appealed to 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 in the last five years and reject those that cheated them, not allowing welfare schemes to reach the poor and the needy, denying the state development for several decades while allowing infiltrations from across borders in the state.

“Both the Congress and Communist parties are here to make a dent in your security. Beware of them!,” the BJP’s star campaigner remarked. 

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. The people greeted the UP CM with songs like ‘Yogi ji aayo re-Yogi ji aayo re’, and chants of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ in Bagbasa. Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha was also present along with Yogi in Bagbasa.

Speaking at his first public meeting in favour of BJP candidate Jadab Lal Nath, who is contesting from Bagbasa, 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. Three lakh families have been provided housing under the PM Awas Yojana whereas toilets under Swachh Bharat Mission and free cooking gas connections under PM Ujjwala Yojana have been given to all the deserving and needy families. The government has also ensured provision of pure drinking water in most villages through Har Ghar Nal Yojana while benefiting farmers from Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi and people from Ayushman Bharat scheme and MNREGA without any discrimination.”

Yogi said that unlike the Congress and Communist parties, the BJP respects people’s faith also. “‘Congressis’ and the communists denied the very existence of Lord Ram and Lord Krishna. Today, the Vishwanath Corridor has been renovated in Kashi and a grand Ram temple is being built in Ayodhya,” Yogi said, adding that Congress has a history of cheating the country and that it compromised the security of the country in connivance with the communists.

Speaking at his second rally in the Kalyanpur-Pramod Nagar assembly constituency of Khowai district, Yogi sought votes for sitting BJP MLA and candidate Pinaki Das Chowdhary. He said that in 2018, the BJP had sought support for Tripura’s prosperity and overall development.

“For 35 years, people of the Communist and Congress parties kept the state deprived of development as 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 also not extended to people. 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 the poor without discrimination. Giving 33 per cent job reservation to women is a miracle,” CM Yogi said.

Continuing his attack on the Congress and the communists, Yogi said that  during the UPA regime, there was a new scam almost everyday. Referring to the coal scam, 2G scam and Commonwealth scam, he said 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,” Yogi alleged. “Now, ministers camp in the north-east and report to PM Modi after ensuring the benefits of the schemes,” he added.
