Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday addressed a public rally in Haryana’s Kurukshetra in support of BJP candidate Naveen Jindal and asserted that the June 4 result will come with the message of Satyamev Jayate.
Speaking at the rally, the UP CM described Kurukshetra as a ‘karmbhoomi’ and said, “Kurukshetra is a karmbhoomi and apparently, it is the only land where the armies referred this land as ‘Dharmabhoomi.’ This can happen only in India and that too in Kurukshetra. The war that was fought was fought for dharma, justice, truth, and the result that will come out on June 4 will give a message of Satyamev Jayate.”
Yogi Adityanath in his rally also talked about the transformation that the country has witnessed in the last 10 years and said, “In the 10 years, we have seen a transforming India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. India’s elevation on the global stage is not only a matter of respect for PM Modi but respect for all the 140 crore Indians.”
Speaking about the end of Naxalism and terrorism, the UP CM claimed, “Borders have been secured. Now, no enemy can intrude our borders. Today, the problem of terrorism and Naxalism has been solved… Earlier, there used to be bomb blasts in which several innocent people used to lose their lives. The morning used to start with a scam and by evening, we used to receive information about some terrorist activity… Today, so much transformation has been done. If today, even if there is a firecracker blast, Pakistan says that it is not involved in it. It knows that this is a new India. ‘Bharat chhedta nahi hai legin agar koi chhedta hai to chhodta bhi nahi hai.’ Through air strikes and surgical strike, India has shown the world its strength.”
Continuing his speech on new India, Adityanath spoke about the various accomplishments of the government and said, “World-class highways railways, express highways are being constructed… IITs, NITs, IIMs, IIITs, AIIMS, and world-class universities are being made and these are becoming the identification of new India.”
Slamming the previous government, he said, “Under the rule of previous governments, people used to die of hunger but today, 80 crore people are getting the benefit of free ration… Today, PM Modi has given health cover of Rs 5 lakh annually to 60 crore people and PM Modi has said that if the government forms for the third time, every elderly person over the age of 70 will get health insurance benefit of Rs 5 lakh annually. 10 crore people have received the Ujjawala gas connection, four crore people have got houses and in the next five years, PM Modi will construct houses for the remaining poor.”
He added further, “And I would like to thank Naveen Jindal that he built toilets in 70,000 poor people in Kurukshetra from his funds.”
Stressing on saffron party’s focus on ‘sabka sath, sabka vikas,’ Adityanath said, “Whatever schemes PM Modi gave, did he see the faces of the people? He did not see the caste, religion, region, or language… He served the country with the mantra of ‘Sabka sath, sabka vikas.'”

Stepping up his attacks on Aam Aadmi Party, the UP CM said, “On one hand, there is BJP, that is giving respect, and security to the country, is doing developmental works, is doing work for the welfare of the poor… On the other hand is AAP, whose morning starts with a lie and its day ends with a lie. The formation of AAP initially stemmed from Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign against the Congress party. Now, AAP along with them, have moved forward to rob the nation. They have destroyed Delhi…”
Yogi Adityanath also targeted the INDIA bloc and slammed it for protesting against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Yogi Adityanath said that Congress’ Rahul Gandhi claims to be eradicating poverty by conducting a survey of property and imposing the inheritance tax that Sam Pitroda talks about. “…Rahul Gandhi said that we will conduct a survey of the property and will impose Inheritance Tax. You must have read Sam Pitroda’s remarks that half of the property belonging to your father, and grandfathers, will be seized and given to the Rohingyas and Muslims from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar, who have no connection with India.”
He added, “They (Congress and AAP) protest against CAA in which Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, and Parsis from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh who are suffering and have taken shelter in India are being given citizenship. They say that if they come to power, they will destroy it. They have their eyes on your property.”
The UP CM also compared the Inheritance tax with Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb’s Jajiya Kar (Jizya Tax), and said, “Aurangzeb’s soul should not enter independent India. We have to defeat the alliance of AAP and Congress.”
In Haryana, the Congress and the AAP are fighting in alliance, with the Congress contesting nine Lok Sabha constituencies while one seat from Kurukshetra has been given to the AAP.
Notably, Jindal represented the Kurukshetra parliamentary constituency from 2004 to 2014 when he was in Congress.
However, he lost to the BJP’s Raj Kumar Saini in the 2014 national elections and was not fielded by the Congress in 2019. The former Congress leader Naveen Jindal had joined the ruling BJP recently.
Lok Sabha elections in the 10 parliamentary constituencies of Haryana will be held in a single phase on May 25. The counting of votes will be on June 4.
In the 2019 Indian general elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerged as the dominant force in Haryana, securing a landslide victory by winning all 10 parliamentary seats. (ANI)
