Yogi Adityanath the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, campaigning for the state polls next year, said at a rally yesterday that before he came to power, daughters, sisters, buffalos, and bulls were unsafe but at present they all can be considered to be safe.
The Chief Minister said at a workshop of party spokespersons at the state BJP headquarters in Lucknow yesterday, “Earlier whenever our workers stayed anywhere, women of the family asked, will we ever feel safe? Earlier our daughters, sisters felt unsafe. Even if a bullock card went through western UP, buffaloes and bulls didn’t feel safe”.
“However,these problems were seen in Western UP, not eastern UP. But it is not the same today. He further interrogated, ” Can you not see the difference? Today, buffalos, bulls, or women… can they be picked up forcibly? Isn’t this a difference? What was Uttar Pradesh’s identity? Wherever potholes started, that was UP; wherever there was darkness, that was UP. Any civilized person feared walking on the streets at night. But not today,” Yogi Adityanath said.
