Kurud (Chhattisgarh): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that the Congress would never come to power at the Centre or in the state under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi.
Yogi, who was campaigning for the BJP candidate Ajay Chandrakar in Kurud Vidhan Sabha seat in Dhamtari district of Chhattisgarh, said that voting was on Tuesday (November 20). “Tuesday is the day of Bajrangbali. So I appeal to all on this day that after reciting Hanuman Chalisa, first cast the vote and then have food,” he said.
Targeting the Congress party president Rahul Gandhi, Yogi said that the leaders of the Congress party themselves are questioning the leadership of Rahul as there was no victory under his leadership so far. “Every time they fought the elections, they had to face the defeat,” he said.
Taking a dig at the Congress, Adityanath said, “One who is not a devotee of Ram is of no use.’ He further alleged that Congress always did the politics of caste. “Congress party ruled for more than 55 years and promoted terrorism, Naxalism and corruption in the country,” he added.
The next and last phase of Chhattisgarh Assembly elections will be held on November 20.
