After EC Ban Ends, Yogi Adityanath Calls SP Candidate ‘Babur Ki Aulad’
Sambhal: Resuming his poll campaign after a 72-hour EC ban, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday called a Samajwadi party candidate “Babur ki Aulad” or “Babur’s child”.
The UP CM made the remark on a day he returned to campaigning for his party after the EC imposed a 72-hour ban on him for making a comment on communal lines.
Taking on the SP candidate from Sambhal, Shafiq-ur-Rehman Burq, Yogi Adityanath said: “What can be said about SP… It fielded a candidate in Sambhal who claims himself to be the descendant of Babar, hesitates in garlanding the statue of Baba Saheb and does not recite Vande Mataram,” he said.
Yogi asked the people whether they wanted to hand over the reins of the country to those who are anti-development, anti-youth, traitors, terrorists and opposed to the believers of Bajrang Bali (another name for Lord Hanuman).
The UP CM claimed that his government took up development work in the state without discriminating on the basis of religion, unlike the previous governments.
