UP Polls: BJP 'Cutting Yogi To Size', Can Have Only One Supreme Leader, Says Priyanka

The final choice of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to ground the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath from his home ground of Gorakhpur in the in next assembly elections, according to Priyanka Gandhi, who is the Congress general secretary, had been an effort to cut him down to size because, in an autocratic system such as theirs, there will only be one glorious leader.

On the 15th of January, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party announced that Adityanath would run for the Assembly seat of Gorakhpur City, setting to rest suspicions that he may run for the high-stakes Ayodhya seat.

Adityanath, a five-term Lok Sabha member, is contesting the Assembly election for the 1st time.

Vadra stated in an interview that the BJP's motivation for fielding the chief minister from Gorakhpur is a well-kept mystery. She believes his administration is trying to trim him down to size, according to her. It's no mystery that they've wanted to do so for quite some period.

She went on to say that their inner pulls and pushes are starting to show in public now. She believes there could only be one ultimate leader in an authoritarian system resembling theirs.

The general secretary of Congress then went on to criticise the Uttar Pradesh administration, led by Yogi Adityanath, for its ability to handle the second wave of the Covid-19 global epidemic, accusing that it failed to safeguard the people of the state and offer them medical services, o2, medicine, and hospital wards.

Worse yet, she claimed, it behaved as an attacker toward the population and those delivering health care while failing to achieve all of this. If it was the Asha bahus who endangered their existence to save others or physicians, nurses, and medical professionals, the administration fostered a climate of fear instead of incentivizing and assisting them.

She said that the Bharatiya Janata Party administration's efforts were focused on concealing the reality instead of saving lives, which she claimed exacerbated the situation because individuals were unable to seek help even when they were in the scariest and unfortunate circumstances.

People prefer to put tragedies behind them and go on, according to the Congress leader, who added that she cannot predict how severely this would affect the future elections. She does believe, however, that an administration should be held accountable for its acts.

She went on to say that when many people get killed and so much misery is experienced, it must not be ignored. It is up to us as individuals to hold those in positions of power accountable. This is a vital part of democratic governance.

In response to her party's decision to create a powerful pitch for ladies in the polls, she stated that the act of providing the mother of the Unnao sexual assault victim a ticket to run for office is to send a very quick message: the individual who destructed her relatives can do so and get aside with it even though he was an MLA, he had political strength, and they are empowering her to take that same power, become an MLA, and utilise it to restore her life and support others.
