Kota (Rajasthan) [India]: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath attacked the Congress on Thursday and said that Congress was playing the role of a barrier to development.
‘The Congress government has ruled the country for years but has caused problems in return. Congress got the opportunity to rule in Rajasthan for years. If you compare the five-year rule of the BJP under Vasundhara Raje with the Congress government under Ashok Gehlot, you’ll find out that the BJP government was working whereas Congress was playing the role of a barrier to development,’ said CM Yogi while addressing a rally in Kota.
The Uttar Pradesh CM also alleged that during the Congress rule, Mafias were calling the shots in Rajasthan.
‘Mafias are increasing here, but in Uttar Pradesh, bulldozers are being run on Mafias. Uttar Pradesh was infamous for mafias, but today all have disappeared… There is a double-engine BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, and ‘Ram Rajya’ has come there’ Yogi Adityanath said.
