Navsari: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said his party, the BJP, can easily win more than 150 seats in the upcoming Gujarat Assembly elections.
Speaking to the ANI on Friday, the saint-politician said: “The goal of more than 150 is easy for the BJP since the development made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his stay as chief minister of Gujarat is visible in the state” .
“In addition, as the way in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s roadmap for Gujarat and other Indian states was implemented quickly, it also increased people’s confidence,” he added.
The UP Chief also said that per capita income in Gujarat has increased tenfold over the last 20 years.
“In the last 20 years, per capita income in Gujarat has increased by up to 10 times, from Rs 14,000 to Rs 1,41,000. Gujarat’s development rate is highest in the country and is a leader in job creation. sense of security in Gujarat has become emulation for other Indian states, “said CM Adityanath.
Commenting on Vice-President Rahul Gandhi’s visits to the temples in Gujarat, Yogi Adityanath said: “Rahul has become a laughingstock for his cheap and cheap advertising acts.”
“I am surprised that it was the United Progressive Party (UPA) government that tried to demolish the Ram Setu, but the Supreme Court suspended it. In fact, the then government headed by the Union Congress presented a statement sworn in the Supreme Court and even named Lord Ram and Lord Krishna as a ‘myth.’ “Now, when Rahul Gandhi visited the Dwarkadhish Temple, a question arises as to whether his party’s affidavit was correct or is he right?” said Adityanath , and demanded: “I feel that Rahul should clarify to the nation on this subject”.
The UP chief minister also said that if the tribes (adivasis) are outside the mainstream of the country, then only Congress is responsible for it.
Responding to a question, Yogi Adityanath said: “Ram Temple is not an election issue for us, but a matter of belief. The matter is sub judice and we hope that the decision will be in accordance with the public’s sentiments.”
When asked that patidars and Dalits were unhappy with Vijay Rupani Gujarat’s BJP-led government, Yogi Adityanath reported how farmers get water from the Sardar Sarovar dam and the availability of water throughout the Saurashtra region .
He affirmed that not only patidars and dalits, but also farmers and all other sections of society will extend their support to the BJP.
Earlier in the day, Adityanath launched a scathing attack on Congress calling it a “symbol of devastation.”
Addressing a rally in Valsad, Adityanath blamed Congressional Vice President Rahul Gandhi for his accusations against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“It is because of this that when terrorists like Ishrat Jahan were killed by security forces in Gujarat, Rahul Gandhi came to support it.” Congress is not a symbol of development , but of devastation, “Adityanath said.
He said that Rahul Gandhi was confusing the people of Gujarat during his electoral demonstrations.
“I came here to inform you about the reality of the development of Gujarat, as recently the prince congressman (Rahul Gandhi) had tried to confuse. Nowadays, these people talk about development in Gujarat, which never discussed the development in the country in the last 70 years, “said the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Adityanath also said that Rahul Gandhi was talking about the development of Gujarat when he himself has not developed his parliamentary electorate Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.
“When Gujarat witnessed heavy flooding, Prime Minister Modi and Amit Shah came here, but Rahul Gandhi fled to Italy,” Adityanath said.
Rahul Gandhi is seeking to dethrone ruler BJP in Gujarat. The last congress government in Gujarat was led by Chhabildas Mehta from February 17, 1994 until March 13, 1995.
The 14th Assembly of the Legislative Assembly in Gujarat will be held at the end of 2017 when the 13th Assembly ends on January 22, 2018.
