'UP-Karnataka cut the north-south divide', says Yogi Adityanath


Vikas, Suraksha, Sushasan was the mantra that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath came up during his Karnataka campaign. He said that the BJP would seek its vote on Development, Security and Good Governance.

Yogi said that he comes from the land of Lord Rama while Karnataka was Lord Hanuman's home. He said that there has been a long-standing relationship between UP and Karnataka which cuts the north-south divide.

He further said that in UP there were no cases of farmer suicides. The Karnataka government waived off loans of farmers taken from cooperative societies. However, the UP government waved all kinds of farm loans including those taken from the nationalised banks he said.

Yogi also drew a parallel between the law and order situation in Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, the state of which he is the Chief Minister. "The law and order in UP are very much under control, but it has collapsed in Karnataka", he said.

"The Karnataka government is sheltering Jihadis, but UP has managed to curb them, he further added. He said that the Karnataka government despite an increase in the murder of Hindu activists had failed to act. The law and order situation in any state is a reflection of the mindset of the party in power", Yogi also said. The statements were made during his campaign in Sirsi, Karnataka.

While giving his blessings to the BJP candidates, Yogi said that Karnataka needs to move on a path of development and for this, the BJP needs to be in power. "Many farmers have committed suicide, but the Congress government has failed to provide justice to them", he also said.
