Yogi Adityanath: Conspiracy being hatched to make western UP into second Kashmir
Raking up the issue of exodus of Hindus from western Uttar Pradesh, Firebrand BJP leader and Gorakhpur MP Yogi Adityanath on Monday said if such situation continued this region would soon become â€œKashmirâ€. â€œAs Kashmiri Pandits were terrorized and forced to flee the Kashmir Valley and their properties were forcefully occupied, I foresee a similar scenario as Hindus are being forced to leave their properties behind and migrate,â€ Yogi Adityanath said while addressing election rally in Dhaulana/Pilkhuwa seat in Hapur district where four time BJP MP, Dr. Ramesh Chandra Tomar, is in the fray.
Yogi Adityanath said situation is very grim in entire western Uttar Pradesh, particularly in districts like Muzzafarnagar, Baghpat, Meerut and Ghaziabad. â€œBJP is committed to not let this happen anymoreâ€¦We have lost Kashmir Valley, but we cannot let western Uttar Pradesh to become second Kashmir,â€ he said and urged Hindu voters to unite and support the BJP with their full might. He alleged that a â€˜fatwaâ€™ has been issued by Muslim clerics to support Muslim candidates, and said that this was a direct challenge to all Hindu voters who should unite and fight for their survival.
Targeting Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, the BJP MP said Uttar Pradesh has lost its sheen and recognition in the last five years of rule of both the parties. Uttar Pradesh was lagging far behind in all spheres of development â€“ economic, industrial, agriculture, education, health, infrastructure. He said while other parties have announced their manifestos, BJP has released â€˜pledge documentâ€™ which is partyâ€™s commitment to take Uttar Pradesh to new heights and again bring it to national mainstream.
â€œBy sending Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Parliament from Varanasi, people of Uttar Pradesh has managed to redeem the political image of the state. Now by bringing BJP to power, people of Uttar Pradesh would end misrule and tyranny of Akhilesh Yadav, who has been rejected by his father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav. Voters will also reject Mayawati , a political opportunist, who is trying to make alliance of Dalits and Muslims, which was rejected by Bhim Rao Ambedkar at the time of Independence,â€ he added.
Addressing the rally, BJP Dhaulana candidate Dr Ramesh Chandra Tomar said total anarchy prevailed under Akhilesh Yadav government where people lived in fear and women were looted and tortured. â€œBJP workers were tortured by police and false cases were slapped on them,â€ he said and accused sitting SP MLA for running his fiefdom in the constituency. Dr. Tomar urged Hindus voters to unite behind him as Muslims were doing on behest of their Maulanas (Muslim priests). â€œDo not Dhaulana convert into a Maulana constituency,â€ he said and urged all Hindu voters to unite and vote for the BJP.
Dr. Tomar, whose position got a boost with BJPâ€™s former contestant, Y.P. Singh, joined the poll campaign, recalled incidents of Masuri and Pilkhuwa where Hindus were allegedly terrorized and police under instructions of local SP MLA did not take action against guilty. He said if voted to power he would reopen all cases of atrocities against the Hindus and put all the accused behind bars. He also promised to fulfill promises made to his electorate, particularly to the farming community which forms a major chunk of voters in Dhaulana constituency.”
