Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in an exclusive interview with Republic TV, confers about the SC verdict in the Ayodhya case, the ideologies of Hinduism, Rahul Gandhi and the upcoming 2019 elections.
After the Supreme Court delayed the hearings in the Ayodhya dispute case on October 29, CM Yogi Adityanath through a series of tweets urged the SC to deliver a fast-track method to resolve this ceaseless dispute.
Yogi Adityanath commenting on the delayed hearing said, “The Indian judiciary is independent, we can't hinder the law process, the date that the apex court has given, they might have thought about it well. But the people of India want an immediate solution to the Ayodhya dispute and that is why we appeal to the supreme court in the interest of 132 crore Indians and in the interest of peace & tranquillity of India, there should be an immediate solution to the Ayodhya & 'ram janmbhoomi' dispute.
“Ayodhya issue is not political, it's a matter of faith,” proclaimed Adityanath after being asked about the escalating pressure of the approaching General Elections in 2019.
Speaking about the mandate of the upcoming elections, Adityanath confidently proclaimed, “Bhartiya Janta Party will perform exceptionally in all these states, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh & Rajasthan will be won by the BJP again. In Telangana and Mizoram too, the BJP will perform exceptionally.'
Discussing the concept of Hinduism, Adityanath said that Hinduism is Hinduism and there’s no good or bad.
Adityanath responded to Rahul Gandhi's recent comment on Hinduism saying, “At least the fourth generation of Pandit Nehru accepted Hinduism, I think in reality it is our victory that Rahul Gandhi has accepted Hinduism. Hinduism is Hinduism, not good or bad. Rahul Gandhi should know this. Secondly, I want to say this to Rahul Gandhi that Pandit Nehru ji who would call himself an 'accidental Hindu', at least Rahul Gandhi called himself a Hindu and as a result is temple hopping, he at least attempted to understand the strength of this nation, better late than never.”
The CM of Uttar Pradesh also had a message for Diwali- “The festival Diwali is being observed in full swing across India. This country has reasons to celebrate too because under PM Modi's leadership, at several locations this nation has achieved milestones. Under our pro-poor schemes, the changes that the common man has witnessed, how their status has been elevated, naturally for a poor person, for a village, for the weak, for the Dalit, for that section of society that was devoid of development, our schemes have benefitted them. It's the festival of Diwali and we would want to wish all fellow Indians."
