Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday claimed that BJP is going to repeat history in Uttar Pradesh as Yogi Adityanath has restored the rule of the law in the State.
“In 2014, 2017, and 2019 polls, people of UP chose development under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi and gave absolute majority. Today with Chief Minister Yogi filing his nomination, the BJP is marching ahead with the resolve of ‘300 paar’,” Shah said at a public meeting in Gorakhpur before Yogi Adityanath filed his nomination papers for Gorakhpur Sadar Assembly seat.
Hitting out at the Opposition particularly the Samajwadi Party he said: “UP is now free from Azam, Atiq, and Mukhtar. Mafia is seen at only three places in UP now – in jail or outside UP or they appear as candidates for the Samajwadi Party. Mafia used to rule UP, police were scared of them. Today, the mafia walks up to the Police station to surrender.”
Shah said once upon a time, Gorakhpur was considered the hiding place of the mafia. But today Gorakhpur means development — G stands for Ganga Expressway, O for Organic Agriculture, R for Roads, A for AIIMS, K, H — Khad (Fertilizer Factory) , P, U for Purvanchal Expressway, and R for Regional Medical Center.
“Today the opposition does not have any issue. They are spreading canards. I want to tell them that whatever they do, people of Uttar Pradesh are with BJP and this time the party is again going to get more than 300 seats,” he said.
Shah said CM Yogi established the rule of law and good governance in UP.
He said no one talking negatively about BJP because development has taken place in UP under the leadership of Yogi.
He called upon the people that their voices should go to Saharanpur and it should be known that BJP is winning more than 300 seats.
Union education minister and election in-charge UP Dharmendra Pradhan and UP BJP president Swantra Deo Singh along with several MPs and Legislators were present on this occasion.
