PM Modi praises Yogi Adityanath : An illusion or reality check

Published

Lucknow, July 15 : As Prime Minister Narendra Modi  is busy  inaugurating new projects in Uttar Pradesh and praising chief minister Yogi Adityanath while accusing former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav for “neglecting” people, the people of the state are complaining about poor condition of roads with potholes  that pose threat to their lives.

In a reality check in Uttar Pradesh, roads around Lucknow’s Lalbagh, Lucknow City railway station and other areas are riddled with potholes.

Locals complain that “These are very dangerous, especially when it rains. It gets waterlogged, leading to accidents. We risk our lives everyday.”

Chief Minister Adityanath had promised pothole-free roads by June 15, 2017  and said action will be taken against the departments that fail to meet the deadline.

Interestingly, both the PWD and Irrigation department, which have fared badly, are headed by Keshav Prasad Maurya. Maurya however has assured that roads will be fixed soon.

Therefore, Adityanath government have failed in delivering his first big ticket promise after coming to power — pothole-free roads by June 15, 2017.

On the contrary, the Prime Minister  praised chief minister Yogi Adityanath, stating that his government has changed the very perception of Uttar Pradesh. “Yogiji has been able to curb the crime rate and corruption in Uttar Pradesh. He has contributed immensely to the state’s development,” he said.

Roads in Gorakhpur is filled with potholes, locals said, “Government had promised that all potholes would be filled by 15 June 2017 but nothing has been done till today. Potholes have claimed many lives. Government is only talking about religion and nothing else.”

 Keshav Prasad Maurya has reportedly told the Public Works Department (PWD) to erect saffron-coloured boards, displaying the slogan ‘sarkar ka sankalp, sadkon ka ho kayakalp’ (the goverrnment’s pledge is to transform roads), along with pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, chief minister Yogi Yogi Adityanath and deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya, on the roads in UP, that have been declared pothole-free pothole-free by the department.

Priyanka Gandhi

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi took on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath for the death of Hathras rape victim, saying he doesn’t have any moral right to continue as chief minister.

“I was on the phone with the Hathras victim’s father when he was informed that his daughter had passed away. I heard him cry out in despair. He had just been telling me that all he wanted was justice for his child. Last night he was robbed of the chance to take his daughter home for the last time and perform her last rites,” Gandhi said in her first two tweets on the issue on Wednesday.

She also asked Adityanath to resign. “@myogiadityanath RESIGN. Instead of protecting the victim and her family, your government became complicit in depriving her of every single human right, even in death. You have no moral right to continue as Chief Minister,” Gandhi tweeted.

The 19-year-old died in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday. The woman was admitted there in a critical condition after being brutally raped by four men in her village in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district.

The incident took place on September 14. She was first admitted to JN Medical College and Hospital in Aligarh, but was shifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital after her condition deteriorated where she breathed her last.

The UP government has been facing flak from Opposition parties over the issue. Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had said that “no hope” is left from the “insensitive government”.

Reacting to the incident, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati tweeted in Hindi, “The news of the death of the Dalit girl after gangrape in Hathras, UP, is very sad. The government should provide all possible help to the victim’s family and ensure quick punishment to the culprits by prosecuting them in a fast-track court.”

The Congress has questioned the “silence” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and women leaders of his party and alleged that Uttar Pradesh under the Yogi Adityanath government has become the country’s “crime capital”.

At a press conference, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate alleged that for eight days no gangrape charges were pressed in the matter and that the UP chief minister’s information advisor and Agra Police kept calling the incident “fake news”.
