North-South Row: Yogi Adityanath Accuses Rahul Gandhi of Playing Divided Politics | India News


Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath addressed Congress Secretary-General Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday in a recent speech comparing politics in North and South India, saying the leader of the The opposition was playing a divisive policy.
“I was hearing a statement from a leader of a national party who has been elected in Uttar Pradesh many times and is making fun of the people of the state (Uttar Pradesh) in Kerala and trying to divide the people. He has also done it before, ”the prime minister told the state Assembly while speaking about the governor’s speech at the joint session of both houses.
Without naming Rahul Gandhi, Adityanath said that the divisive mentality of the Congress party leaders poses a serious danger to national security.
The prime minister’s comments sparked a strong reaction from the congressional benches as they presented strong opposition.
Addressing a public meeting in Thiruvananthapuram, Rahul Gandhi said: “For the first 15 years, I was an MP in the north. I had gotten used to a different kind of politics. For me, coming to Kerala was very refreshing because I suddenly discovered that people are interested in problems and not only superficially, but in delving into problems. ”
“It is this mentality that has posed a serious danger to national security,” Adityanath said, adding that Amethi and Uttar Pradesh gave the Gandhis enough opportunities, but that they preferred to go to Italy rather than visit their constituencies.
Rahul Gandhi, who has represented the Amethi constituency of Uttar Pradesh in Lok Sabha since 2004, competed from the Wayanad seat in Kerala simultaneously in the 2019 general election.
Although he lost Amethi to Smriti Irani of the BJP, he won from the stronghold of Congress in Kerala.
Rae Bareli and Amethi have been two bastions of Congress in Uttar Pradesh. Rae Bareli is the Lok Sabha seat of the President of Congress, Sonia Gandhi.
Once again, apparently targeting congressional leaders, Adityanath said: “They tell the US ambassador that the real danger does not come from Lashkar-e Taiba, but from organizations within the country.”
What kind of mindset is this? Put national organizations in the dock and issue statements to discourage the Jawans at a time when the army was giving an adequate response to the enemy country on the border, he said.
Adityanath also took photos of the Secretary General of Congress, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who had visited Mathura on Tuesday.
“What kind of political sanskar is this where you remember the temples only when you visit the state and then say that you will save Vrindavan?” He said.
Referring to Priyanka Gandhi’s offer to provide 1,000 buses to transport migrant workers who are stranded due to the closure of COVD-19 across the country last year, she said: “This mentality worries me. The bus offer was a joke in the middle of a pandemic ”.
“I was very happy with the offer, but an investigation revealed that the bus registration numbers provided (by Congress) belonged to scooters, tricycles,” he said.
If Congress was serious about providing transportation, why didn’t it bring the students back from the state of Kota, Rajasthan? He said, and asked if any particular individual or family had the freedom to joke around with people during a pandemic.
The prime minister also attacked opposition parties for their “worrying” behavior during Governor Anandiben Patel’s speech.
“The governor is the constitutional head of the state and if the House does not give due respect to his constitutional head, he would represent a serious danger to the democratic system.
“Such behavior raises questions in the legislature and we are not seen as trustworthy,” he said.
In addition to being a governor, she is also a woman, at least the opposition should have respected that, the prime minister said.
Opposition parties, including the Samajwadi Party, BSP and Congress, went on strike opposing the governor’s speech on the first day of the budget session on February 18.
