Yogi Adityanath criticises Indira Gandhi’s “gareebi hatao” slogan, says her grandson is still repeating it

Amroha (UP): Criticising the Congress for its handling of terrorist incidents, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath stated on Tuesday that during the Congress government, whenever a terrorist incident occurred, they would “put oil in their ears” and ignore it.

“They would merely say they were watching or would watch, while terrorists continued their activities,” he added.

In a jibe at the Congress, he remarked that the party had coined the slogan ‘Gareebi Hatao’ in 1970 and in 2024 late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s grandson was still repeating it.

He added, “Instead of alleviating poverty, one family gained unfettered access to plunder the nation’s resources, whether it was the family in Delhi or Saifai. They indulged in rampant corruption and instigated chaos.”

Speaking at a public meeting in Hasanpur, Amroha in support of Kanwar Singh Tanwar, CM Adityanath stated, “The Samajwadi Party has crossed the limits of shamelessness. They dared to withdraw cases against terrorists who attacked Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya and the Sankat Mochan Temple in Kashi. However, the judiciary thwarted their intentions.”

He continued, “The court sharply criticised the SP, warning that if they can withdraw cases against terrorists today, they might tomorrow shamelessly compromise the country’s security by giving them the Padma Award. The judiciary will not permit such actions.”

He further said, “Today is Hanuman Jayanti. PM Modi has facilitated the installation of Lord Ram’s idol in Ayodhya, who is the idol of Lord Hanuman. Therefore, ‘Jo Ram ko laaye hain, hum unko layenge aur kamal khilayenge.’”

CM Adityanath remarked that before 2014 there were frequent terrorist incidents and bomb blasts, instilling fear among the people. However, terrorism has been effectively curbed since 2014.

“By 2019, PM Modi took decisive action to revoke Article 370, which was the foundation of terrorism. This led to the eradication of terrorism from India. Now, even when a firecracker explodes, Pakistan promptly denies involvement. Even our adversaries recognise India’s strength. They understand that if terrorist incidents occur in India and innocent lives are lost, they will face consequences”, he stated.

Asserting that the BJP prioritises development, the Chief Minister said, “The distance from Amroha to Delhi is just 165 km. Before 2014, it took five hours to travel this distance. Congress failed to appreciate the importance of convenience and time. We are linking Amroha with the Ganga Expressway. Now, one can reach Delhi in just one-and-a-half hours, Lucknow in four hours, and Prayagraj in six hours.”

The CM added, “The then Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, had asserted that Muslims have the first right to the country’s resources. So, where does that leave the Dalits, Backward Classes, Khadagvanshi, the poor, farmers, mothers, sisters, and youth?”
