INDI alliance is anti-Hindu and anti-Ram: Yogi

Lucknow, May 7 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday attacked the opposition parties and said that Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP) and the entire INDI alliance are anti-Hindu and anti-Ram.

Talking to the reporters at his official residence, the CM also criticised the statements made by SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Yadav. “These are the people who open fire at Ram devotees, question the existence of Lord Ram and challenge his divine power. Expecting from them that they would honor India’s faith, national heroes, and show reverence for the esteemed freedom fighters who played pivotal roles in our independence struggle is futile,” he said.

He said that whether it is Congress, SP, DMK, RJD, or the National Conference, all have opposed the Ram temple in Ayodhya. “They are against Hindus and the Sanatan faith. They are the ones that nurture the policy of appeasement. These supporters of terrorism behave contrary to the ideals of Lord Ram,” he said.

Yogi said, “People associated with Congress and the INDI alliance have tried from the beginning to stall the verdict from the court in the case of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. These people used to act as barriers and create obstacles. When the case went to the Supreme Court, these people ensured that nothing happened for 7 to 8 years. However, when the NDA government was formed under the leadership of PM Modi at the centre, and then in UP, the case was expedited.”

He said that under the guidance and leadership of PM Modi, a grand temple was built in Ayodhya. “Millions of devotees from across the nation and around the globe are flocking to express their faith and witness the rejuvenated Ayodhya. The members of Congress, SP and INDI alliance, however, have consistently aligned themselves with those who oppose Lord Ram,” he said.

In response to the remarks made by Ram Gopal Yadav, the CM criticised them and said that they exemplify the true nature of the INDI alliance. “These individuals not only manipulate India’s faith for political gain but also challenge the divine authority of Lord Ram. History attests that those who have dared to challenge divine authority have met with adversity,” he said.

He mentioned that the opposition’s statement amounts to disrespecting the Sanatan faith and insulting crores of Ram devotees. “It is an insult to those who have dedicated their entire lives to the Ram temple. Indian society cannot accept this at all. Their statement is provocative, aimed at appeasing a section of society and using them as a vote bank,” he said.

Yogi said, “PM Modi is also saying that the parties associated with the INDI alliance will attempt to make a dent in the reservation of backward, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. Their manifesto mentions this. When the Congress-led UPA government was in power, RJD and SP were its constituent parties. At that time, these people formed the Ranganath Mishra and Sachar committees.”

He pointed out that the Ranganath Mishra Committee suggested giving 6 percent reservation to Muslims out of 27 percent meant for the OBCs. “At that time, BJP had strongly opposed this stating that reservation cannot be done on the basis of religion. Then, the Sachar Committee was formed to attempt to intervene in the reservations for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes,” he said.

He mentioned that the opposition parties also tried to include some castes of Muslims in the SC and ST, which was opposed by the BJP, as Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar was also against reservations based on religion.

Yogi expressed concern that despite efforts to safeguard the rights of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Backward Castes, parties like Congress, SP, and RJD may attempt to diminish their reservation privileges and redistribute them to minorities whenever they have the chance. He warned against the potential division of India, urging voters to vehemently reject such actions.
