Yogi Adityanath mocks opposition leaders, says they are still in ‘quarantine’ | India News

NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday mocked the opposition leaders and said they were still in a state of “quarantine”, several months after lockdown was imposed in India in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic.
Yogi Adityanath made these remarks in view of the accusations that the opposition leaders are more active on social media than on the ground.
Addressing a meeting of the intellectuals (‘Prabuddhjan Sammelan’) organised by the BJP’s Lucknow unit at Indira Gandhi Pratisthaanin, Adityanath alleged that the workers of the opposition parties got isolated as their leaders did not show up.
“The first case of Covid-19 in UP was detected in the first week of March. Almost ten-and-half months have passed. Leaders of many parties are still in quarantine and not moving out of their houses. Their tweets come. When the leader is in quarantine, then it is natural that the workers will get isolated,” he said.
The UP chief minister praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying there was not a single week when he did not speak to the chief ministers.
“At the onset of the Covid pandemic, we were not talking about sangathan (organisation) but we talked about seva (service). This was an unprecedented work. In a state like Uttar Pradesh, which has a population of 24 crore, it was difficult for the government machinery. But, when workers, intellectuals and self-help groups worked in tandem with the government, UP showed a successful model of Covid management,” he claimed.
Adityanath said despite propaganda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi enjoyed unprecedented support of the people.
On a call given by the prime minister, people from different sections of society came together, lit lamps and beat plates, he said.
The UP chief minister said in the past three years, 39 lakh people in UP got houses under the PM Awas Yojana.
“This could have been done earlier as well. The houses are not named after any person or any party,” he said.
He said it was the thought of a “bright future” that led to a surgical strike against Pakistan and the abrogation of the Jammu and Kashmir’s special status. “Today India is not a soft state, but a ‘maargdarshak’ (guiding) state with new vigour, new impression. All this is possible because of the BJP,” he claimed.
