Cong manifesto 'Anyay Patra' towards SC, ST, OBC : Yogi

Cong manifesto 'Anyay Patra' towards SC, ST, OBC : Yogi

Gorakhpur, May 8 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday launched an attack on Congress over its manifesto and said it is like a 'new version' of the Muslim League.
Addressing media in the Gorakhnath temple premises, the CM said, "This is not a 'Nyay Patra', but 'Anyay Patra' towards the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Backward Castes and Sanatana Dharma. A new version of the Muslim League has come. Nothing can be more shameful than the manifesto of the country's oldest political party, Congress, representing the Muslim League."
When asked about former Congress president Sonia Gandhi accusing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of promoting the politics of hatred, he said that instead of telling white lies, Sonia Gandhi should at least develop a habit of speaking the truth. "During the elections, these people won't be able to deceive the public anymore because under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the entire nation has come together in the vision of 'Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat'," he said.
It may be noted that former Congress president Sonia Gandhi had on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of promoting hatred for political gains and urged the voters to vote for Congress for a bright future.
Continuing his attack, Yogi said, "Everyone knows that Congress has inherited the policy of divide and rule. In 1947, Congress allowed the cunning tactics of the Britishers to succeed and divided the country. After independence, Congress fuelled class struggles within the country based on caste, region and language due to political selfishness. Terrorism, Naxalism, and separatism, all of these are contributions of Congress."
He questioned, "Who doesn't know what Sonia Gandhi did as the chairperson of the UPA from 2004 to 2014?" They formed the Justice Ranganath Mishra Committee to undermine OBC reservation. The committee even suggested allocating 6 percent of the OBC reservation to Muslims. BJP and NDA opposed it at the time, and Congress' plans couldn't materialise."
The CM claimed that Congress and its allies also attempted to encroach upon the rights of SC-ST communities. "During the Congress government, there were attempts, as mentioned in the Sachar Committee report, to include some Muslim communities in the Scheduled Caste category. However, due to opposition from the NDA and BJP, Congress's plans couldn't be fulfilled," he said.
He criticised Congress' track record, accusing them of implementing Section 370 in Kashmir and undermining OBC reservation in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. "The people of India will never allow the intention of Congress to be fulfilled because divisive politics is not in anyone's interest," he said.
Continuing his criticism of Congress' manifesto, Yogi emphasised its divisive nature, warning that it could lead India towards class conflicts and encroach upon the rights of Scheduled Castes, Tribes, and Backward Classes. However, he expressed confidence that the people of the nation will resist these Congress plans.
He noted the current unity across the country under PM Modi's leadership, striving to achieve the vision of a self-reliant and developed India. He said that the people of the entire country are determined to support the BJP and NDA under the leadership of PM Modi for a developed India.
