“Shaheen Bagh, Biryani, Kashmir, Article 370, ‘Boli Nahi Goli’, Ram Mandir, Terrorism, Religion, Triple Talaq, Pakistan.” Is this an election rally or a speech to motivate one community that’s going to war with another? It is shocking that a man wearing monk’s clothes is using divisive words in his speeches during election a rally in Delhi.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been campaigning for the BJP for upcoming Delhi elections and his favourite subject in these rallies is Shaheen Bagh.

“Kejriwal and his congregation are carrying out incidents like Shaheen Bagh, (they) are trying to create chaos in Delhi,” said Adityanath at a rally.

Listen to his words carefully. He is claiming that the incidents taking place in Shaheen Bagh are organised by Kejriwal and “his troops”.

Then he goes on to speak about Kashmir and says that the revocation of Article 370 has pained Pakistan and Kejriwal.

Not just Article 370 or Kashmir or Shaheen Bagh, Adityanath also talks of nationalism and will power.

“Article 370, the reason for terrorism in the country, an Article that no government could revoke ever since Independence, a move (its abrogation) that needs strong will power and nationalism was done by PM Modi,” Adityanath said.

There was no mention of the economy of the nation in his speech but there definitely has to be a mention of Ram mandir.

He even goes on to criticise the Delhi chief minister over schools, which has been a major campaigning point for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in these Assembly elections.
