UP: Earlier bombs were thrown at innocent citizens, now Kanwar Yatras are taken out to chants of 'Bum-Bum-Bhole', says Yogi Adityanath

Sambhal (Uttar Pradesh) : Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday slammed the previous governments in the state led by Opposition parties, saying that earlier criminals used to throw bombs at innocent citizens, but now Kanwar Yatras are taken out with great pomp and show to the chants of 'Bum-Bum-Bhole'. He was addressing a public meeting in the Sambhal district ahead of the remaining six phases of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. "Earlier, criminals used to throw bombs at innocent citizens. But now, Kanwar Yatra is taken out with great pomp and show to the chants of 'Bum-Bum-Bhole'," said Adityanath while addressing the audience. Adityanath claimed that during the elections, women are coming in large numbers to vote for BJP, which had given them security. "Businessmen and youth are also voting with excitement because there are no riots, crimes and anarchy in the state. There is silence at the houses of the ones who used to commit crimes and riots because they know that the countdown to March 10 has started," he added. The Chief Minister said that even COVID-19 could not stop the speedy progress in the state. "The first wave came, we controlled that. The second wave arrived, we made the state 'Aatmanirbhar' in Oxygen. The third wave came and went. We gave everyone free tests, treatment. Those who misinformed people on the vaccine and termed it as 'Modi vaccine' or 'BJP vaccine have to answer now. It is these vaccines that saved the population of 25 crores in the state from COVID-19," he added. Adityanath stressed that the double-engine government of BJP means free vaccine, ration, construction of roads, medical colleges. "Earlier, the funds meant for ration, vaccines used to go to 'itra wale mitr' (friend with perfume)," he quipped.
