Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath lashed out at the opposition parties over the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor saying the project could never have been completed under their government.
Addressing the meeting of “booth adhyaksh” of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Braj region in Etah, CM Yogi said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to dedicate the ambitious Kashi Vishwanath Corridor in the heart of Varanasi to the people. Would Congress or “buaa” (referring to Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati) have built the Kashi Vishwanath Dhaam? And, whether “babuaa” (referring to Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav) sung the songs of Lord Shiva? If ‘Bua’ and ‘Babua’ were in power, the dream of Ram Temple and Kashi Vishwanath Corridor would have remained incomplete,” he said.
Earlier in the day, Akhilesh Yadav had claimed that the approval for the project had come during his term. Hitting back to Akhilesh, CM Yogi asked the Opposition what they were doing throughout the Covid time?
“The BJP was working during the COVID-19 pandemic. Where was the Congress? Where was the BSP? And what could be said of babuaa? Nothing was known about these people. All of them were under home quarantine, taking rest in their homes. They were spreading propaganda and played with people’s lives.”
He asked BJP supporters to ensure the leaders who sat at home during Covid should be made to remain there in the elections.
“It happens only in the BJP government that we lay the foundation and then inaugurate the projects. When the intent is not clean, dishonesty and corruption rule. Even if power is attained by deceit, and foundation stones are laid, the public does not leave them in a position to inaugurate the projects,” he added further.
