Bihar’s Rashtriya Janta Dal chief Tejashwi Yadav has joined the bandwagon of these calling out Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adtiyanath for his latest controversial “Abba Jaan” comment. “It’s an absurd comment,” he mentioned.
“Yogi Adityanath should talk about the people who say ‘pita jaan‘ (Hindi word for father) — how many of them have been given employment or education?” Mr Yadav requested in a video he shared on Twitter at the moment, speaking in regards to the Hindi-speaking inhabitants within the state.
The remark was in reference to Yogi Adityanath’s broadly criticised “Abba Jaan” (Urdu phrase for father) dig.
“This is just religion and caste-based politics under BJP’s rule, since elections (in Uttar Pradesh) are coming soon,” the Rashtriya Janta Dal chief added.
कथित योगी जी बताए,
‘पिता जान’ कहने वाले कितने लोगों को नौकरी, रोजगार, अच्छी शिक्षा और स्वास्थ्य व्यवस्था प्रदान की? ये बेरोजगारी,महंगाई व किसान के मुद्दों पर बात क्यों नहीं करते?
चुनाव देख तुष्टिकरण करने व भाषाई आतंक फैलाने के अलावा इनकी कोई योग्यता एवं उपलब्धि है ही नहीं। pic.twitter.com/IQ3VQ7GSwC

Yogi Adityanath has been criticised by several political rivals and social media customers for his crude swipe on the Samajwadi Party, which misplaced energy to the BJP in 2017. Setting the tone for meeting elections subsequent yr, he said at a public meeting on Sunday that previous to his authorities’s formation within the state, ration meant for the poor could be “digested” by those that utter “abba jaan.”
“Because then, people who say ‘abba jaan‘ used to digest the rations. The rations of Kushinagar used to go to Nepal and Bangladesh. Today, if anybody tries to consume the rations meant for poor people, he will land in jail,” he had mentioned.
The Uttar Pradesh authorities has finished no work so it’s “obvious” that the chief minister will move such a remark in view of the upcoming polls, Mr Yadav claimed.
His assault on jobs and unemployment comes on the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Yogi Adityanath and mentioned Uttar Pradesh is main the largest growth campaigns of the nation. “Uttar Pradesh has become a shining example of (the) double benefits of the double-engine government,” PM Modi had mentioned earlier within the day.
“Crime rates have increased in UP, and casteism has also spread… but the BJP will not talk about that,” he added. “Any development issues for India are not a concern for them — be it inflation, unemployment, education or farmers’ issues.”
“They have no merits or achievements apart from appeasement politics and spreading linguistic terror,” Tejashwi Yadav wrote on Twitter.
