Lucknow : On Sunday, while addressing Samajik Pratinidhi Sammelan Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that Pakistan and Afghanistan are feeling disturbed by Taliban. In a tough warning to the Taliban, Yogi said said that if the insurgent group dares to move towards India, “an air strike is ready.” During the address he also launched an attack on his political opponents in the state.
He says that Taliban knows the results of moving towards India. “Today, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country is powerful, and no country can dare to raise its eyes towards India. Today, Pakistan and Afghanistan are feeling disturbed because of the Taliban. But, the Taliban knows if it moves towards India, an air strike is ready,” he said.
The Taliban had seized power in Afghanistan in August this year two weeks before the US completed its troop withdrawal from the two-decade-old war theatre.
“Supporting the Taliban means supporting anti-India, anti-humanity, anti-women and anti-children acts. You would be knowing the kind of atrocities and acts that are being committed today and there are some shameless people who keep supporting the group. This cannot be accepted. We have to be cautious of such people who support the wrong acts of Taliban,” he said
As per the statement issued by UP unit of BJP, Adityanath, referring apparently to SBSP chief Om Prakash Rajbhar, said, “His (Rajbhar’s) thought process is confined only to the development of his family. While the father wanted to become a minister, one son wanted to be an MP, and another an MLC. The shops of such people indulging in blackmailing must be shut.”
Without naming Rajbhar, Adityanath further said, “There were two ministers from the Rajbhar community in my cabinet. In the Cabinet meeting, one minister opposed the construction of a memorial in honour of Maharaja Suheldev in Bahraich, while Anil Rajbhar wanted a grand memorial should be built.”
“Today, a grand memorial is being built in Bahraich. The BJP government has named the medical college in Bahraich, after Suheldev. What have the opposition parties done for Maharaja Suheldev?” Yogi said.
He said that the “followers of Muhammad Ghori and invader Ghazi fear that if a a Suheldev memorial is built, people will forget Ghazi, and trash those indulging in political blackmailing. This is why they indirectly oppose the memorial of Suheldev.”
Sharpening his attack on other rivals, Adityanath said the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Congress have nothing to do with development.
