Yogi Adityanath Visits Kerala, Seeks Unseating Of The Left Regime
Lucknow, February 21 (TNA) Storming the 'beleaguered' citadel of Left in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday issued a clarion call to free the land from corruption and religious bias to evolve a ' new Kerala' under Bharatiya Janata Party.
Addressing a well-attended public meeting on the occasion of 'Vijay Yatra', being seen as the launch of the BJP's election campaign in Kerala, which is likely to go to the polls in April/May this year, he said the time has come to rid Kerala of the corrupt rule of Left on the lines of what BJP did in Tripra, Manipur, Asom and Arunachal Pradesh.
He said that the BJP government were doing good work in these states and you can see that separatism and terrorism has come to an end. " Both, the LDF and UDF as well as the previous Congress governments, are corrupt and have only spread anarchy and established a rule which was against the propriety of democratic as well as social norms,'' he pointed out.
The saffron-robed chief minister, who was in Kasargod on a visit, received a tumultuous welcome with chants of 'Jai Sri Ram' and "Yogi Yogi' all through. It was his second visit to Kerala after becoming the Chief Minister of UP, the earlier being on October 4,2017.
Slamming the Kerala government for playing with religious sentiments of the people, CM Yogi said Sabrimala has been a prime example as to how the religious beliefs and following had been ignored by the Left government.
''Several religious places, temples were demolished in Kerala and the religious sentiments were crushed. This is for all to see,'' he said while pointing out that " on the other hand, we respected the popular sentiments by paving the way for the construction of grand temple at Ayodhya.''
He sought to point it out that at a rally, some elements had shown objectionable posters about RSS. " We immediately got into the nefarious design and thwarted the misinformation campaign,'' he said while stressing upon the need to make people of Kerala aware of such designs.
