SP opposes Ram in Ayodhya, Dr Ambedkar in Kannauj: Yogi

Kannauj (UP), Feb 3 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday attacked Samajwadi Party (SP) and said that had they been in power the grand temple of Lord Shri Ram in Ayodhya would never have been built.

After launching 59 projects worth Rs 352 crore in Kannauj, the CM said SP not only opposes the consecration of Lord Shri Ram in Ayodhya, but also stands against the legacy of Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar in Kannauj.

Addressing a gathering at the boarding ground of KK Inter College in Ashok Nagar, he emphasised the efficiency of the double-engine government in completing developmental projects while respecting faith.

Yogi also paid homage to late Shri Om Prakash Pathak, the father of Kannauj MP Subrat Pathak, on his fifth death anniversary. Commending MP Subrat Pathak for annually providing artificial limbs and tricycles to the differently abled people he highlighted the potential achievements of Divyangjans with the support of society and government.

Paying respects to the late Shri Om Prakash Pathak and BJP leader Shri Banwari Lal Dohare, he acknowledged their dedication to the nationalist cause. Reflecting on the history of Kannauj, he remembered Maharaj Harsh Vardhan and praised his valour, emphasising his pivotal role in the grandeur of the Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj and the realisation of the concept of Ram Rajya in the country from Kannauj itself.

Mentioning the completion of the grand Shri Ram temple after 500 years of struggle under PM Modi’s leadership, the CM invited the people of Kannauj to visit Ayodhya and witness the temple. He urged the residents to choose a representative for Kannauj in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections who actively engages with the community and ensures the equitable distribution of government schemes.

Hitting out at the SP, Yogi mentioned the name change of the medical college in Kannauj, which was originally named after Dr B.R. Ambedkar during the SP tenure. “SP has issues with both Lord Shri Ram and Baba Saheb,” he said.

He accused the SP of seeking votes in the name of caste while working for their own family’s benefit. He assured the perfume traders of Kannauj of government support and highlighted the positive environment being created for technology, packaging, marketing and export in the perfume business.

Reiterating the commitment to public service, the CM assured the development of Kannauj with excellent infrastructure, world-class ITIs and skill development centers.

On this occasion, the CM presented house keys and certificates to the beneficiaries of various schemes.
