India Will Run By Constitution And Not By Islamic Law: Yogi Adityanath


New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath making remarks about ‘New India’ said that the New India will function according to the Constitution, not the Shariat law, and the dream of “Ghazva-e-Hind (ultimate conquest of India)” will never come true. Yogi Adityanath also claimed in the interview that his “80 versus 20” comment was meant to differentiate between “those who back progress and those who oppose everything”.

“I can say with utter clarity that this is new India, this is the India of world’s most popular leader Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In this new India, development is for all and there will be appeasement of none,” Yogi Adityanath told news agency ANI in an interview.

“The new India will work according to the Constitution, and not the Shariat. I also want to say it clearly that the dream of Ghazva-e-Hind will not be fulfilled even till the Qayamat (end of the world),” he said.

Yogi Adityanath repeated his comments in a series of posts this morning. “Those who dream of Gazva-e-Hind, religious fanatics of Talibani thinking, understand this… India will run according to the constitution, not according to Shariat…!” he posted.

The saffron-wearing Chief Minister also spoke on the massive row in Karnataka over hijab restrictions in colleges. “I strongly believe that the system should run as per the Indian Constitution. We cannot impose our personal beliefs, our fundamental rights, our personal likes and dislikes on the country or institutions,” he told ANI.

“Am I asking the people and workers in UP to wear saffron? What they want to wear is their choice. But in schools, there should be a dress code. This is the matter of schools and the discipline in schools,” he said.

Further he adds that one’s personal belief is separate but, when one talks about institutions, then one has to accept the rules there. In context he added, “The constitution should be followed.”

The CM further clarified his ’80 versus 20 comment’ that was seen to refer to a Hindu-Muslim divide in votes.

The elections, he said, are a fight between 80 versus 20, where 80 per cent are “those who back progress” while 20 per cent people “oppose everything” and have a negative attitude.

“80 per cent are those people who are happy with the state government’s agenda of security, who appreciate the public welfare schemes of the state government. Those who like development. Those who got a chance to get their work (at government offices) done in an honest and transparent way,” he said.

“20 per cent are those people who always oppose everything. They opposed everything before and will continue doing so now. They have negative thinking. They back money and crime and will remain so. This is how this election is that of 80 versus 20,” he said.
