During the inauguration of a media center at the BJP state headquarters in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath expressed strong support for the Modi government. He emphasised that the common people have a strong desire to see the Modi government return to power once again. CM Yogi Adityanath praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his transformative efforts over the past decade, stating that PM Modi has significantly changed the country’s image.

"There is only one feeling among the common people that they want Modi government once again. PM Modi has changed the image of the country in the last 10 years and the positive efforts by him have earned the support of the people of India," said Yogi. 

Yogi Adityanath accuses Congress of Sharia Law agenda

Yogi, in a scathing attack on the Congress party, accused it of attempting to implement Sharia law in India. Speaking at an election rally in Amroha, Adityanath criticised the Congress manifesto’s alleged intention to redistribute people’s property, echoing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent remarks referring to former PM Manmohan Singh’s past statement.

Allegations of Sharia Law implementation

Adityanath asserted that the Congress manifesto hinted at the implementation of Sharia law through personal laws. He warned against endangering the constitution drafted by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and likened the alleged agenda to a “Talibani administration.” The Chief Minister also praised PM Modi for abolishing the practice of triple talaq, contrasting it with Congress’s purported desire to revive it.

"In its manifesto, Congress has said that it will implement Sharia by implementing personal laws. They want to create danger for the constitution of Dr BR Ambedkar. They want to endanger the Constitution of this country. They want to implement the Talibani administration. Will we accept the Talibani administration?" The CM added that PM Modi had ended the practice of triple talaq which Congress wanted to bring back.

Recalling Manmohan Singh’s statement

Referring to Manmohan Singh’s purported 2006 statement giving Muslims the “first right” to the country’s resources, Adityanath raised concerns about the implications for marginalised communities. He emphasised the potential repercussions for Dalits, backward classes, farmers, youth, and women if such a policy were implemented.

"Dr Manmohan Singh ji, jab who PM thhe, us samay unhone kya kaha thha? Unhone kaha thha ki desh ke sansadhanon par pehla haq Musalmano ka hai (Manmohan Singh ji, when he was PM, said Muslims have the first right to the country's resources). In that case, where will our Dalits go, where will the backwards go, Kharagvanshis, Sainis, farmers, the youth, the women," the CM said.

Modi government’s development initiatives

Adityanath highlighted the Modi government’s developmental initiatives, citing the Ganga Expressway project as an example of improved connectivity and reduced travel time. He praised the government’s efforts in combating terrorism and accused the Congress and Samajwadi Party (SP) of neglecting security concerns in the past.

Criticism of Congress and SP

Adityanath criticised the Congress and SP for allegedly prioritising the interests of select families and accused them of jeopardizing national security. He singled out the I.N.D.I.A bloc candidate in Amroha, Danish Ali, for special scrutiny during his address.

Election rhetoric

The Chief Minister’s remarks come amid heightened political campaigning ahead of the elections, with parties trading accusations and outlining their agendas to woo voters in Uttar Pradesh.
