YOGI SLAMS CONGRESS OVER RAM TEMPLE
LORMI: Raking up the Ram temple issue, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday sought to know whether Congress was concerned about Lord Ram or Mughal emperor Babur.
Addressing a poll rally in Chhattisgarh on the last day of campaigning for the first phase of the state polls, he alleged that the Congress toyed with national security and actively and covertly supported Maoism in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand for political gains.
Despite having extensive mineral deposits and forest wealth, Chhattisgarh remained “poor, backward and a Bimaru state” during the Congress rule, he said. “Today, the forest wealth is being used for the welfare of locals. The tribals and forest dwellers are being given benefits of development schemes,” the priest-turnedpoliticiansaid.
