Yogi Adityanath tweets a picture with PM Modi, talks of making a ‘New India’

Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took to his Twitter and shared a photo of himself with Prime Minister Narendra Modi talking about making a ‘New India.’ However, the Opposition targeted Yogi for this move. 

Taking to his Twitter, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Sunday shared two photos of himself strolling alongside Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Prime Minister is on a two-day visit to Uttar Pradesh’s capital Lucknow for the 56th Director General of Police (DGP) Conference. 

Yogi Adityanath posted a brief verse on the creation of a New India along with pictures of PM Modi talking intently to the UP CM while resting a hand on his shoulder. “We have set off with a vow, dedicated our body and soul, determined to make the sunrise, go higher than the sky, and make a New India,” tweeted Yogi Adityanath.

The photo, though, portrayed a casual gesture of affection towards a younger colleague but also sent a strong message to the opposition; clearing the speculation of a rift between Modi-Shah and Yogi. The photographs shared by Yogi were widely shared on social media platforms and generated quite a buzz in the political circle. However, Opposition parties and leaders were in no mood to leave a chance to target both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Reacting to the pictures of Yogi Adityanath and PM Modi walking hand in hand, Samajwadi Party chief and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav responded with a verse of his own. “In politics, sometimes things are done for the sake of the world. Like reluctantly putting a hand on the shoulder, walking a few steps together,” he tweeted.

In a reference to PM Modi’s “jhola utha ke chal denge” comment, Congress spokesperson Surendra Rajput said only time will tell whether Yogi Adityanath will leave on his own or if he will be kicked out. “Actually, seeing the condition of UP that they have brought about, the people themselves will ensure that they are evicted. Unemployment is at a peak, farmers are being humiliated, crimes against women are the highest. The public has made up its mind, it will give its answer through votes,” said Surendra Rajput.

After repealing the Centre’s three farm bills, BJP seems on the backfoot and the opposition is in no mood to spare the Bharatiya Janata Party on a plethora of issues related to farmers, farm bills, and farmer’s protest.
