Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that terrorists and Maoists are afraid of the BJP government and don't want to come near it as they are aware that they will either be jailed or killed.
During his public address in Raipur, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said, "The terrorists and Maoists run away from us, they do not want to come near us for they know it means only two things, either they will land in jail or they will be killed (unka Ram Naam Satya ho jayega) and leave for their heavenly adobe. There is no third meaning."
Taking a dig at the Congress, he said that in the last few months, the system has derailed in Chhattisgarh under the Congress rule.
"In the last 5-6 months, the system has totally derailed in Chhattisgarh. In the 55-60 years of their rule, the successive Congress government have only looted the country and plunged it into poverty, casteism, regionalism, terrorism, and Naxalism," he said.
Taking potshots at former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister alleged that he discriminated between the Muslims and other individuals.
"Manmohan Singh, during his tenure as the Prime Minister, said that Muslims have the first right over the resources of this country. Where will the Dalits, backward, women, tribal and others go?" he questioned.
