Abba Jaan: Tweeple slam Yogi Adityanath for fanning communal sentiments, tweet memories with their father

A row erupted on social media on Monday over Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s Abba Jaan remarks targeting Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav.

Addressing rallies on Monday in Kushinagar and Sant Kabir Nagar, where he laid foundation stones of projects worth crores of rupees, the UP Chief Minister said only people who say Abba Jaan got rations in the state till the BJP took over the reins.

His remarks with a communal undertone were called out by many on social media. Tweeple were getting angry at Yogi Adityanath over his statement targeting a particular community.

Taking to Twitter, tweeple alleged UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for inciting communal violence in the poll-bound state.

However, in the midst of this debate, many people said on social media that Abba Jaan, father, dad, papa are all the same. No particular word should be used in such a wrong way.

Yogi Adityanath comments were slammed for fanning communal sentiments in India and have spiralled into a trend on Twitter, where tweeple were sharing memories with their fathers.

Calling it blatant communalism, Omar Abdullah said that the BJP has no intention of fighting any election with an agenda other than blatant communalism and hatred with all the venom directed towards Muslims.

Congress leader Kapil Sibal also slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his Abba Jaan remark and asked him whether he want an inclusive UP Or a divide and rule.

The Trinamool Congress leaders leader Mahua Moitra tweeted that an elected CM is inciting religious sentiments in India, this is a direct violation of section 153A of the Indian Penal Code.

In her tweet, she also asked will anyone take notice of this? Supreme court? UP Police?

On Yogi Adityanath remarks -there is no place for appeasement politics under PM Modi leadership, the Congress national spokesperson Dr Shama Mohamed tweeted that there is only space for communal politics under Modi-Yogi.
