Yogi: Politicians like Mamata, Rahul turn Hindu during elections

Yogi Adityanath described the recent Chandipath by Mamata Banerjee during an election rally in Bengal as an 'ideological victory'

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister on 8 April hit out at politicians who try to use ‘Hindu’ card to lure voters during elections. In an interview, Yogi said he is a proud Hindu and slammed those who highlight his statement ‘I am a Hindu and I don’t celebrate Eid’ to showcase him as a leader with ‘narrow religious ideology’.

Invoking Swami Vivekananda, Yogi said,” Being a Hindu does not mean that one is narrow-minded. Swami Vivekananda had presented Hinduism on the world stage strongly. It was he who said, ‘Garv se kaho hum Hindu hain (Say it with pride, we are Hindus)’. Being a Hindu should be a matter of pride for me, not a shame. Those who have massacred innocents, exploited people for their vote bank politics should be ashamed,” Yogi said.

Commenting on Mamata Banerjee’s Chandipath during an election rally in Bengal recently, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath described it as an “ideological victory”.

“Those who didn’t allow Durga Puja are now reciting Chandipath…those who were once hesitant to call themselves Hindu are now showcasing their Hindu identity. They are saying ‘I am a janeudhari’. This is our ideological victory and it shows that we are near victory,” Yogi said.

In an apparent reference to leaders like Mamata Banerjee, Rahul Gandhi and other leaders who take ‘temple tours’ particularly during the election season, Yogi said people can identify between real Hindus and ‘accidental’ Hindus. “Those who try to become Hindu during elections…their condition is similar to the Hindi idiom ‘na ghar ke…na ghat ke,” he said.

Campaigning for BJP for the ongoing assembly elections in West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on 8 April said that if his party comes to power, it will create anti-Romeo squads in the state.

Addressing a public meeting in Hooghly, Yogi said that the BJP would put AITC’s ‘Romeos’ behind bars.

“To safeguard the interests of sisters and daughters, BJP will create Uttar Pradesh-like anti-Romeo squads in Bengal and put all Trinamool Romeos behind bars,” Adityanath said.

Exuding confidence in his party’s ability to win this election, Yogi Adityanath said that on 2 May, the day the results are declared, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee would start saying “Jai Sri Ram”.
