Adityanath stirring communal tensions in UP similar to Kashmir Valley


Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath is now likely to follow the footsteps of BJP-PDP government in Kashmir by turning the situation in Uttar Pradesh  precarious by initiating policies against the Dalits, violating the constitutionally forbidden policy of untouchability and therefore creating law and order situation on the lines of Jammu and Kashmir. Again the BJP government has started taking sue motto steps to revive Ayodhya Temple politics.

Adityanath anti-Dalit policies have also led to clashes in Saharapur and consequently Dalits have begun converting themselves into Buddhist religion as a part of a protest against atrocities committed by Thakurs.

It is noteworthy that criminal conspiracy charges have already been framed against Uma Bharati, L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and nine others leaders by the CBI special court and they are likely to be prosecuted under the law in the 1992 Babri Masjid Demolition case.

Yogi Adityanath became the first UP chief minister in 15 years to visit the disputed Ram Janambhoomi/Babri mosque site in Ayodhya to offer prayers Ram Lalla thus stirring the communal sentiments among the communities and create chaos in the state.

When the Babri Masjid demolition case is being argued in a special court then why is the BJP in a hurry to further complicate the matter along communal lines just to  win a single point agenda of wining the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on the majority community votes.

Secondly, when the prime minister Narendra Modi repeatedly refers to following  Dr B R Ambedkar who is the author of our constitution then why the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh is being allowed to revive the forbidden practice of untouchability  which India has battled for over 5000 years.

The Opposition is rightly demanding resignation of Adityanath over the incident at the village of Mushahar community where Dalits were asked to take shower before meeting him. Adityanath even distributed soaps, shampoo and perfumes among the villagers to ‘smell good’ before meeting him.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi has demanded the registration of a suitable case against Chief minister under the SC/ST atrocities Act.

India is witnessing two turning points in the areas of Kashmir where insurgency has flourished to an optimum level and even chief of the army staff has announced that “We’re fighting a dirty war” meaning that government is being perceived at war with its own citizens when it confronts civilian Kashmiri population engaged in Stone pelting on security forces and siding with terrorists in the state of Jammu and Kashmir along the Line of Control and the International border. The security forces are suffering heavy casualties due  to civilian unrest in the South Kashmir area as well as infiltration of terrorists from across the border along the LoC and the international border.Both the situation are resulting in the loss of life of armed forces  and therefore is not conducive to the interests of the country.

Thus PM Modi may be advised not to create troubles for India, just to fulfil his personal ambition of achieving two ‘historic solutions’ One to resolve Kashmir in his own desired manner, second to built temple at Ayodhya  and third to achieve victory in 2019 elections on controversial lines that may even prove elusive for his electoral victory.

But BJP cannot afford to lose Uttar Pradesh again nearly for retaining Adityanath  and asked the Uttar Pradesh chief minister to win the trust of Dalits.
