"Don't let terrorists' masters and mafia patrons grab power": UP CM Yogi takes a dig at SP

May 21, 2024 05:36 PM

Siddharthnagar ): Labelling the SP and Congress as the "masters of terrorists" and "patrons of the mafia," Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath remarked on Tuesday that before 2017, every criminal and mafia member exploited the public and extorted money, posing a threat to the safety of daughters.

Speaking at a public meeting at the Government Girls Inter College in support of Dumariyaganj MP and Lok Sabha candidate Jagdambika Pal, Yogi stated, "Today, the SP feels pain as the mafia faces consequences and is punished severely. We must not allow the supporters of the mafia, nor the masters of terrorists, to gain power."

He further stated that disasters occur due to the alliance between the SP and Congress. "When the Congress was in power at the Centre and the SP governed the state, there were terrorist attacks on Shri Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya, Sankat Mochan in Kashi, and the courts in Ayodhya, Lucknow, and Varanasi. As soon as Akhilesh Yadav became CM, he tried to withdraw cases filed against terrorists."

The Chief Minister asserted that the public is aware of the close relationship between the SP and the mafia, stating that the two cannot be separated. "Every mafia member in the state is linked to the SP. The SP's sympathies do not lie not with daughters and businessmen, but with the mafia," he said. "Because of their leniency towards the mafia, the public rejected them in 2014, 2017, 2019, and 2022. And now, with the slogan of '400 paar,' the SP is getting worried. The SP is contesting elections in 63 seats and their deposits are being forfeited in all of them. This is why the INDI alliance of the two boys (SP and Congress) is spreading lies, rumours, and conspiracies to mislead the public" Yogi added.

The CM said that the mafia, which was driven out by the people of Gorakhpur and Sant Kabir Nagar, will not be allowed to thrive in Siddharthnagar, the land of Mahatma Buddha.
"If this mafia prospers, it will seize the property of the poor. I used to protest in Dumariyaganj and Kapilvastu, and you received justice. Don't let such a situation arise again. This mafia is purely selfish; they will take over land and get it registered at gunpoint. While we are determined to make life difficult for these mafias, if they return, they will attempt to engage in hooliganism and extortion. The decision on both votes and choices is yours," Yogi said.


CM Yogi stated that when his party got an opportunity, it enshrined Ram Lalla in Ayodhya. He criticised the SP, saying, "SP people used to open fire on Ram devotees. The SP General Secretary even called the Ram temple 'useless.' Lord Ram is the controller of the world and the Supreme Father. 'Ram ke bina humara koi kaam nahi, Jo Ram ka nahi woh humare kisi kaam ka nahi.'"

The CM also questioned the manifesto of the SP-Congress alliance, stating that they plan to allocate property to Muslims who entered India as infiltrators from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, whereas his administration opposes the imposition of inheritance tax in the country. He highlighted the infrastructural improvements made during his tenure, noting that previously, it took six to eight hours to travel from Gorakhpur to Balrampur via Siddharthnagar due to poor roads.

However, significant road construction has taken place, improving connectivity across regions including Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Nepal, Basti, and Balrampur. Additionally, better flood prevention measures have been implemented. Yogi emphasised the government's efforts to address healthcare disparities, mentioning the establishment of a medical college named after Madhav Prasad Tripathi in Siddharthnagar. He highlighted the eradication of encephalitis, a disease that previously claimed the lives of innocent children in the region, likening the achievement to the elimination of mafia influence.


The CM emphasised that individuals who praise Pakistan while residing in India should not burden the nation; rather, they should relocate to Pakistan. "Members of the SP and Congress warn against discussing Pakistan, citing its possession of an atom bomb. We said that we also possess such a deterrent. Should Pakistan provoke India, it risks annihilation," Yogi stated.

The CM praised Jagdambika Pal's unwavering dedication, noting his commitment to attending Parliament sessions until ten in the morning and then reaching Dumariyaganj by four in the afternoon, even travelling a thousand kilometres during these sessions.


"Regardless of day or night, winter or heat, rain or flood, Pal has remained steadfast in serving the public, deserving another opportunity to continue his service," he stated.
Yogi government minister Rajni Tiwari, Dumariyaganj MP and Lok Sabha candidate Jagdambika Pal, MLA Jai Pratap Singh, Shyamadhani Rahi, Vinay Verma, former MLA Raghavendra Pratap Singh, BJP District President Kanhaiya Paswan, Lok Sabha convenor Ramkumar Kunwar among other leaders, were also present in the public meeting.
