Alleging that previous governments in Uttar Pradesh spent I need money now to build the boundaries of the Kabristans (cemeteries), Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Wednesday his government spent money to develop pilgrimage centers Hindus (teeth).
Addressing a public event in Mathura, where he announced projects worth Rs 201 crore, the Chief Minister said: âPreviously, money was given to secure the limits of the kabristan ( cemeteries) and not for the development of pilgrimages. Now, rituals are organized on a large scale and the saints are respected. Kumbh is a prime example of reliving a 5,000 year old tradition I need money now
He also denounced the opposition over the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya and said that would not have come true if there had been another government in the state.
âThe Ram temple in Ayodhya is built because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Could this temple have been built by Congress? Would the BSP have built it? And what about babua, âhe said, referring to the former chief minister and president of the Samajwadi party, Akhilesh Yadav.
âIf it was babua, like abbajaan, they would have ordered the shooting during the construction of the Ram temple. If they had stopped protecting terrorists, they would have thought about development, empowering women, temples. On the one hand, there is the Ram bhakt government, and on the other side, there are those who shoot at the Ram bhakts, âhe said, alluding to Akhilesh and his father and Patriarch of Samajwadi party, Mulayam Singh Yadav.
CM’s visit to Mathura comes amid tension in the region after a retracted call to perform Hindu ritual ceremonies by Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha at Shahi Masjid Idga, next to the Katra Keshav Dev temple complex in Mathura.
âThis land, over the past 5,000 years, has taught everyone to celebrate its history. This is the place where Krishna was born and by his birth he blessed it. Because of this land, and through his leelas, 5,000 years ago, Krishna gave directions for the future. Every element of this place has an identity of Lord Krishna, âsaid Adityanath.
Claiming that the âsoulâ of the country resides in Uttar Pradesh, he accused previous governments of tarnishing the state’s image.
He alleged that government programs were restricted to only “four VIP districts: under previous governments, but they were now implemented statewide.” âPreviously, only one family received benefits, now 25 million people in the state are receiving benefits,â Adityanath said.
Accusing opposition party leaders of not coming out to help people during the Covid-19 pandemic, he said they were not needed now and could continue to remain in “quarantine”.
âDuring the Covid, neither the BSP, nor the Congress, nor the SP were present on the ground. They were in home quarantine and in self-isolation. They are trying to create a float in the elections. But when people were in danger, they remained isolated. They are expected to remain in home segregation for a few more years. No need for them to go out in public, âhe said.
The CM alleged that the Mafia which was “welcomed with two arms” under previous governments are now being shown the prison doors.
He also announced that phones and tablets will be offered to young people this month as part of the empowerment policies. âNot only for working from home, but it will be a good platform for online education. The exams will be taken online, âsaid the CM.
