NDA poised for a resounding victory : Yogi

LUCKNOW, Apr 21: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is poised for another resounding victory under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls.
Addressing a press conference held at his official residence, the Chief Minister expressed optimism regarding the outcome of the first phase of Lok Sabha elections, emphasising the palpable enthusiasm among voters towards extending Prime Minister Modi’s decade-long tenure.
He said the people have taken it upon themselves to expose the lies of the opposition parties. “The electorate is supporting the BJP and its allies, reaffirming their trust in the ruling coalition,” he said.
Responding to a query, Yogi attributed the recent spate of violence in non-BJP governed states to what he termed as the ‘repercussion of appeasement politics’. He described incidents such as the clashes during Ram Navami and Holi celebrations in West Bengal and other non-BJP-ruled regions, as provocative actions against the majority populace.
He said, “The attack on the Ramnavami procession in West Bengal is a matter of concern and at the same time it gives a message to the people that a State Government that cannot ensure the security of a peaceful procession is incapable of guaranteeing the safety of women and the citizens at large,” he said.
Denouncing ‘vote bank politics under the guise of appeasement’, the Chief Minister asserted that history has it that such politics fuels communal tension. He urged voters to give a fitting lesson to the opposition parties that compromise citizens’ safety with their votes.
Before embarking on his electoral campaign in Chhattisgarh, Chief Minister Yogi said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts were instrumental in facilitating Lord Ram’s homecoming after a hiatus of 500 years.
He also noted the deep-rooted connection between Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh with the former being the parental home of Lord Shri Ram’s mother Kaushalya.
Describing Chhattisgarh as the maternal home of Lord Ram and a cherished place for followers of the Sanatan religion, Yogi emphasised the widespread anticipation among the populace akin to that witnessed in Uttar Pradesh and across the nation.
He highlighted the sentiment of reverence towards one’s maternal home, asserting that the people of Chhattisgarh share a similar eagerness to engage with the narrative of Uttar Pradesh and Ayodhya.
He seized the opportunity to rally support for Prime Minister Modi, urging citizens to express gratitude through their votes for the Government’s efforts in upholding the Indian ethos and advancing welfare schemes for the underprivileged. He viewed the forthcoming democratic processes as an avenue for citizens to demonstrate appreciation towards Modi’s leadership and contribute to the nation’s progress. (UNI)
