Politics of opposition to Indian culture will no longer work: UP Dy CM Dinesh Sharma

The politics of opposition to Indian culture will no longer work, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said on Thursday as he hit out at opposition parties for dividing people along castes and communal lines.

He alleged that opposition leaders, who were previously against the country’s culture, now wear ‘janeu’ (holy thread) on their clothes, visit temples and recite Hanuman Chalisa, as he credited the BJP for having caused this change in the last five years.

The top BJP leader held public programs in Lakhimpur and Shravasti districts, mobilizing support for party candidates. Voting will take place in Lakhimpur on February 23 and in Shravasti on February 27.

Sharma accused the opposition Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party of dividing people along caste and communal lines. “Today, some opposition leaders wear janeu over their clothes and also announce their ‘gotras’. They ring the temple bell and also recite Hanuman Chalisa. “Previously, these parties worked to create differences between people by opposing the culture of India, but their filthy politics will no longer work,” he added. With the time change, Uttar Pradesh has completely changed in the past five years, he said, adding that previous political parties fought against elections, but this time people are fighting against the polls on behalf of the BJP.

He predicted a bigger victory for his party than in 2017 and said opposition parties will also not be able to hit the triple digit figure, even together. He also praised the BJP-led government in Uttar Pradesh for transforming the law and order situation, improving the quality of education and the employment situation in the state.

The BJP government does not discriminate between people in distributing social benefits and welfare schemes, he said, underlining his party’s motto “sabka saath, sabka vikas”.

Elections for the 403 seats in the State Assembly this time are held in seven phases. The survey of the first two phases was conducted on February 10 and 14 and the results will be announced on March 10. PTI KIS SRY
