India TV Samvaad: Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Keshav Prasad Maurya spoke at the 'India TV Samvaad' event exclusively in Lucknow today (January 17). He talked about the Ram Temple event and asked why former Congress president Sonia Gandhi rejected the Ayodhya Ram Temple 'Pran Pratishtha' invitation of January 22. 

Keshav Prasad Maurya on Ram Temple:

"The temple is being constructed at the birthplace site of Ram Lalla. It was the same place where Babri Masjid was exactly located and demolished on December 6," the UP Deputy CM said. He also said that he knew that the Ram Temple would be built in Ayodhya but did not expect that the temple would be built so soon. He also added that the credit for this goes to PM Modi. He said that he is happy as a kar sevak.

He also attacked the Congress party after its top leadership rejected the invitation to attend the Ram Mandir function.

Maurya attacks Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav:

On the allegations of politicisation of the Ram Mandir 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony by various leaders including Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Keshav Prasad Maurya said that Rahul Gandhi has got into the habit of appeasement. He also slammed Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav and said his family is guilty of firing at karsevaks. He added that Akhilesh Yadav had lost the opportunity of 'prayaschit' by rejecting the invitation.

UP Deputy CM on Lok Sabha Election 2024:

Keshav Prasad Maurya claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will remove nepotism and we will win all 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. 

He also condemned the Opposition parties and said that these parties start raising questions about EVMs whenever they lose elections. He also described the 'PDA' (the idea envisaged by Akhilesh Yadav) as the 'Parivar Development Authority'.

BJP to win Rae Bareli in 2024:

Keshav Prasad Maurya said that this time the BJP will also win the Rae Bareli constituency in the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections. In the last elections, the party had captured the Amethi seat. Regarding Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra, Maurya said that the BJP will win more seats due to Rahul Gandhi's visit to Uttar Pradesh. He said that people are just waiting for elections to be held so that they can bring the BJP to power once again.

Maurya on PM Modi's guarantee:

The UP Deputy CM said that under the leadership of PM Modi crores of people in the country have come out of the poverty line. Crores of people are getting free ration. "PM Modi's guarantee is also guaranteed, people have faith in it. After coming into government, the BJP did not distance itself from the people but remained with them in their happiness and sorrow," he added. He said that 10 crore people got cylinders under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana.
