Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday filed his nomination to contest from Gorakhpur Sadar seat. Yogi, a five-time MP, is contesting the assembly elections for the first time from the city seat in Gorakhpur. BJP has occupied this seat for 33 years. Home Minister Amit Shah himself and UP election in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan were present in Yogi’s nomination. This is the first time Shah has appeared in someone’s nomination. After the nomination, Amit Shah reached the Gorakshanath Math and offered prayers.
Through this mega show, BJP has tried to give a big message in Purvanchal. The Home Minister said, ‘The people of UP are with the BJP. Will win 300 seats again this time. The opposition has no issue.
Mafia Azam-Atiq and Mukhtar will remain in jail
Earlier in the public meeting organized at Maharana Pratap College, Amit Shah said, ‘Mafia is in jail under Yogi’s rule. Ateeq Ahmed, Mukhtar Ansari, Azam Khan will remain in jail. Today we have come to fill Yogi’s form. The opposition has no issue. They feel that due to Corona, gatherings have been limited, people do not have to go among them. I want to tell them that brother, do whatever you want to campaign, the people of Uttar Pradesh are with the BJP, BJP is going to get more than 300 seats again.
BJP is going to repeat history once again in the history of Uttar Pradesh. In all the three elections 2014, 2017, and 2019, the people of Uttar Pradesh have given a thumping majority under the leadership of PM Modi, preparing the way for the development of UP.
And what did Shah say?
The great people of Uttar Pradesh gave us the majority in the 2017 assembly elections also with more than 300 seats. Then BJP made Yogi Adityanath the Chief Minister.
For 2 years, Yogi Ji worked to lay the foundation of good governance here, in view of that, in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, all the opposition parties gathered and formed a grand alliance.
Hundreds of children used to die of Japanese fever in Gorakhpur. In the 2014 elections, when I held a press conference here, Yogi gave the right answer. Today 90 percent of cases have come down.
Narendra Modi has also gone from Uttar Pradesh as an MP. He always says that unless Uttar Pradesh is developed, the country’s development is impossible. PM Modi has always been engaged in the upliftment of the poor, backward, downtrodden, tribals.
I had said in the Bhubaneswar executive committee that those who are left should also get together and do it, we will once again form the government with a two-thirds majority. 65 seats again came under the leadership of Modi Ji.
Big faces included
Among the big faces are UP election in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan, state president Swatantra Dev Singh, Sanjay Nishad, MP Ravi Kishan.
Yogi said – respect of faith without discrimination, a guarantee of security
Yogi Adityanath said, ‘In the 2019 elections, all the political analysts of the country and the world believed that what would happen to the BJP in UP? Even then Amit Shah used to say that less than 64-65 will not win. The BJP had failed the alliance by winning 64 seats here. We have taken forward development projects without any discrimination.
“It has been possible because of the double engine government. As a result, no one can make negative comments. Political commentary is a different matter. Within 5 years, the government and the organization have respected everyone’s faith without discrimination and guaranteed security.
Yogi did sadhna before enrollment
Before the nomination, CM Yogi offered prayers at the Gorakshanath temple and offered prayers. He prayed for victory from Lord Shiva by performing Rudrabhishek. Apart from this, the Yogi also took the blessings of his Guru Mahant Avedhanath. State office bearers of BJP have camped in Gorakhpur. There will also be a door-to-door campaign of Home Minister Amit Shah. However, the campaign is likely to be postponed due to bad weather.
