Yogi rakes up ”Love Jihad”, women safety in Bengal

(Eds: Adds details)

Kolkata, Mar 2 (PTI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi
Adityanath on Tuesday lambasted his West Bengal counterpart
Mamata Banerjee on the issue of women safety and alleged that
incidents of cattle smuggling and ”Love Jihad” are continuing
unabated while the TMC government is endangering national
security by indulging in appeasement politics.

His comments drew sharp reactions from the TMC, which
said that West Bengal doesn”t need sermons on law and order
from Yogi Adityanath as his state has recorded the highest
number of incidents of crime against women.

Raking up the ”Jai Shri Ram” slogan issue, the
firebrand BJP leader accused the TMC government of “playing
with people”s religious sentiments” by not allowing them to
chant the slogan and warned her saying, “See what happened to
those who opposed the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya”.

He promised that cow smuggling will be stopped within
a day if the BJP is voted to power in the state.

“Appeasement politics for the sake of vote bank has
endangered the security of not only West Bengal but also of
the country. The TMC has a problem with refugees getting
citizenship but has no issue with illegal immigrants coming to
the state,” Adityanath said at a rally in minority-dominated
Gazole area of Malda district, which borders Bangladesh.

“Through fraud and deceit, incidents of ”Love Jihad”
are taking place in Bengal. Women of the state are not safe.
We have made a law against ”Love Jihad” in UP. But in Bengal,
where the state government is indulging in politics of
appeasement, neither are there attempts to curb cattle
smuggling nor dangerous incidents of ”Love Jihad”,” he said.

Claiming that the raising of ”Jai Shri Ram” slogan is
not allowed in West Bengal, Adityanath said that the people of
the state will give a befitting reply to the TMC government
for “playing with their religious sentiments”.

“Jai Shri Ram slogan is not allowed in West Bengal,
but people won”t allow this to continue. Just see what
happened to those who opposed the Ram temple. The people of
India don”t take any other name other than Ram. Those who are
Ram ”drohi” (traitors) do not have a place here,” he said.

Adityanath asked the TMC government why it is opposed
to ”Ram bhakts” but has a “nexus with forces that bring
anarchy in the state”.

Claiming that West Bengal, which had once led the
nation, is now facing a lawless situation, Adityanath said the
state needs a “double engine BJP government” to regain its
lost glory.

Several senior TMC leaders were quick to respond to
the allegations and said West Bengal did not need sermons from
him and rather he should look at the dismal track record of
his state.

They also raised the issue of a 50-year-old man who
was allegedly shot dead in Uttar Pradesh”s Hathras district by
an accused out on bail in a case of molestation lodged in 2018
against the victim”s daughter.

“Yet ANOTHER Hathras! The count of dreadful incidents
being reported from the @BJP4India-ruled UP is unending! The
people of UP are suffering as the state of law and order is in
shackles, yet @myogiadityanathis in Bengal??
#BJPHataoBetiBachao,” TMC MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar said on
social media.

“In a poll-bound state, Mr @myogiadityanath comes &
spreads misinformation to fool people. While @BJP4Bengal
leaders were spreading Fake News, the family members of the
lady informed that she was already suffering from a medical
condition resulting in the swelling,” she said in a series of
tweets.

Elections to the 294-member assembly will be held in
eight phases from March 27 to April 29. PTI PNT
