The situation in Uttar Pradesh gets heated up as CM Yogi Adityanath surrounded SP chief Akhilesh Yadav over the slogan of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ raised during the Samajwadi Party’s protest in Agra. While attacking Akhilesh during the BJP Working Committee meeting, CM Yogi raised questions on his perception towards the nation.
Yogi Adityanath has cornered Akhilesh Yadav for two main reasons – because of his controversial statement on the arrest of Al Qaeda terrorists and because of the demonstration of Samajwadi Party workers in Agra.
The SP supremo while reacting to the arrests of two Al-Qaeda terror suspects from Kakori, had said, “I can’t trust the actions of the Uttar Pradesh police and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in the state.”
The Agra incident of raising pro-Pakistan slogans by Samajwadi Party workers comes just days after former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had created controversy while speaking against the state police for its action against Al Qaeda suspects.
As the video of the Agra incident went viral, Wajid Nisar admitted that pro-Pakistan slogans were raised during the rally. However, he claimed that some outsiders had raised such objectionable slogans to malign the party’s image. The Samajwadi Party leader also claimed to have filed a complaint with the police and urged strict legal action against the accused.
The police have taken action in this matter and arrested 5 people. As per India Today, the accused have been booked under Sections 147 (rioting), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 269 (negligent act), 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection), 153 B (assertions against national integration), 505 (2)(creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill-will between classes), 120 B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant Sections of the Epidemic Act.

Yogi while addressing BJP workers at the concluding session of the party’s state executive meeting said, “This shows that these people can put national security at stake just for the sake of vote bank politics”.
The CM also pointed out that the recent arrest of Umar Gautam and Mufti Qazi by ATS shows a conspiracy hatched by some elements to mobilize people against the state government. Both of them were charged with being involved in a religious conversion racket that targeted the unemployed and children with hearing disabilities.
Such incidents should alert the BJP about the opposition’s malicious attempt to destabilize the state government with the help of few “Jihadi” elements. Yogi further points out how the recent win in the panchayat elections indicated the party’s recognition and popularity at the organisational level. “Unfortunately, a responsible politician of the state claims that he has no confidence in the state government and police,” Yogi said, in an apparent jab at the SP chief Akhilesh Yadav.
Samajwadi Party reflects the pseudo-secularism side of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh. The Samajwadi Party tried to create an image of Akhilesh Yadav as a well-read youth having received overseas education. The Yogi Adityanath government is the perfect antidote to the Akhilesh Yadav government’s appeasement politics and for spreading illegal hate speech, hurting sentiments by spreading anti-Indian comments.
Such instances prove why Akhilesh Yadav is not the ideal, reformist politician. He is just another politician incompetent to maintain political stability in the State. Neither can he control his party members from allegedly spreading anti-Indian and pro-Pakistan slogans.
