UP :While farmers committed suicide, corrupt thrived during Cong rule: Yogi

UP :While farmers committed suicide, corrupt thrived during Cong rule: Yogi

Hathras (UP), Apr 27 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday criticised the Congress for indulging in vote bank politics and said that under their governance while farmers faced distress leading to suicides the corrupt individuals thrived.
Addressing a public meeting in support of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Anup Pradhan Valmiki in Hathras at Sikandrarau, the Chief Minister said, "The interests of the poor, farmers, women, and youth were neglected by the Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Congress. They prioritised vote bank politics and sowed seeds of division within castes and society."
He said, "Under their administration, the poor faced starvation while terrorists were treated with biryani. The mafia wielded influence as patrons, but today, the country and state are progressing without discrimination."
Highlighting that over six and a half lakh youth were given government jobs in Uttar Pradesh during his administration, Yogi said, "Now, the benefits of schemes are solely based on eligibility. In the elections, with the slogan of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas,' stands the BJP and NDA, contrasting with the Congress, SP and INDI alliance."
Discussing Hathras, the Chief Minister highlighted its rich heritage, being the birthplace of numerous eminent individuals, including litterateurs and poets like Kaka Hathrasi. He said that the Lok Sabha elections of 2024 have taken place across 191 seats in two phases.
He highlighted the enthusiastic desire of the public to grant Prime Minister Narendra Modi a third term. He said that over the past decade, India's global standing has significantly improved, with the eradication of Naxalism and terrorism, alongside the implementation of numerous developmental projects.
Yogi said, "While the BJP has introduced various development schemes, Congress, which governed the country for 65 years, the SP, which has held power in the state four times, and the BSP, which ruled thrice, collectively have not achieved as much as has been accomplished in the country in the last 10 years and Uttar Pradesh in the last seven years under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi."
He said during the tenure of the SP and Congress alliance, the poor suffered from starvation and lacked access to adequate healthcare, resulting in fatalities. "Previously, funds from Delhi were siphoned off by brokers associated with the Congress, SP, and BSP. Today, funds are directly reaching the bank accounts of the underprivileged through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT). Additionally, the UP government is providing free gas cylinders during Holi and Diwali," he said.
The Chief Minister highlighted that the Congress, which played a role in the partition of the country in 1947, is now proposing in its manifesto to conduct a property survey and levy inheritance tax on ancestral properties. "This implies that in a four-room house, individuals may be instructed to occupy only two rooms, while the remaining two rooms could be seized by the SP and Congress," he said.
He said, "You've constructed your homes through hard work and sweat, yet these individuals seek to plunder them. Such actions must not be tolerated. After dividing the nation, they now conspire to divide our properties. When we crack down on criminal elements, they visit their homes to read Fatiha."
Yogi said that Congress has declared that it will implement personal law, the evil practice of triple talaq. “It is part of a conspiracy to implement a Taliban-like government in a democratic country like India. Minorities will be given the freedom to eat as per their wish i.e. cow slaughter. There can be no bigger sin than this for a Hindu," he said.
He accused Congress of recklessly fuelling communal tensions and selfishly laying the groundwork for India's partition. "India would vehemently oppose such divisive actions. There will be no cow slaughter on Rama-Krishna's land. Butchers will not be allowed to kill cows. We will have to recognise the hidden agenda of Congress, SP, and BSP, and be ready to respond in time. These people are playing with the sovereignty and integrity of the country," he said.
The Chief Minister paid tribute to the late MP Rajveer Singh Diler, noting his passing after undergoing bypass surgery two years ago. He extended condolences on behalf of the BJP family.
He said, "I had the opportunity to work in Parliament for a long time with his father Kishan Lal Diler. Rajveer Singh Diler was also an MP with me. He was always ready for the development of Hathras. BJP will leave no stone unturned to fulfill his aspirations for the development of Hathras."
