Rahul Gandhi accuses Yogi Adityanath of being hateful, UP CM retorts

Rahul Gandhi's dig at Yogi Adityanath was an apparent attack over the UP CM's 'abba jaan' remark

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath of being hateful. In a tweet in Hindi Gandhi wrote: Jo nafrat kare woh Yogi kaisa (he who hates, how is he a Yogi).

However, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s office was quick to respond. In a befitting reply to the Wayanad MP, the CMO through its official Twitter handle said one sees what one wants to see. Quoting Ramcharitmanas, Yogi Adityanath said that a person sees the Lord the way his feelings and devotions are for the God. And yes, Rahul Ji, if it is hate to bulldoze the empire of criminals and miscreants, then this hatred will continue unabated, he said.

A day earlier too, Rahul Gandhi had taunted the Uttar Pradesh CM by making a similar tweet. He had written, you don’t belong to Hindu, Sikh, Christian or Muslim. You only belong to friends, neither country nor man.

Rahul Gandhi’s dig at Yogi Adityanath was an apparent attack over the UP CM’s ‘abba jaan’ remark that charged up the state’s politics ahead of next year’s Assembly election. 

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.

Though the chief minister did not name any particular party, it was clear that he was referring to the Samajwadi Party since he had earlier referred to Samajwadi patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav as ‘Abba Jaan’ in a TV programme.

His remarks with a communal undertone were called out by many on social media including opposition.

The political landscape in Uttar Pradesh is warming up as India’s most populous state goes to polls sometime in February-March 2022.
