PM lauds Yogi for breaking myth

Agencies, New Delhi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for breaking a superstition on Monday as he himself chose to come to Noida, once considered ‘inauspicious’ for CMs.

“I want to congratulate Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Ji whose focus on good governance, is taking Uttar Pradesh to a new heights. Due to his attire, people find it fashionable to believe that he is not modern enough. It is Yogi ji who has done what CMs of UP never did – he came to Noida by breaking the old myth.

Faith is important but blind faith is not desirable”, Mr. Modi said. Unfortunately, there were superstitions associated with Noida and in his own style, Yogi Adityanath has risen above these superstitions and come to Noida.

If anybody thinks not going to a place will prolong their CM tenure and visiting a place will curtail it, such a person does not deserve to be a Chief Minister, Mr. Modi said.

“When I became CM, people told me of a few places where no CMs went because they were inauspicious. I was clear…I would go to all those places in my first year itself. Driven by blind faith and superstition, leaders never went to places for decades.

How unfortunate is that”, he further added. Mr. Modi was speaking to a public rally in Noida after inaugurating the newly laid Magenta line, connecting the Botanical Garden and Kalkaji metro stations.
