A campaign dais is not for singing bhajans, it is for attacking the political opponents: Yogi Adityanath on EC notice

Yogi Adityanath stated that he was merely quoting a conversation. The EC had earlier imposed a ban of 72 hours on campaigning by Yogi Adityanath after his 'Bajrangbali' remark.

Responding on the notice of the Election Commission (EC) seeking an explanation for his alleged “Babar ki Auladremark on the Mahagathbandhan candidate from Sambhal, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has stated in a conversation with ANI that the dais in elections rallies is not for singing bhajans, it is for attacking your political opponents.

He said that quoting a conversation does not come within the ambit of Model Code of Conduct (MCC). “Aapsi baatcheet ko kahin quote karna achar sanhita mein nahi aata hai. Koi bhajan karne ke liye jaata hai kya manch pe? Ukhad dene ke liye aur apne virodhi ko gherne ke liye manch pe jate hain (Quoting conversations does not fall under the Model Code Conduct. Does anyone go to the dais to sing bhajans? Dias is used for attacking your rivals), said Adityanath.

It is notable here that Yogi Adityanath had said during a speech at a rally in Sambhal on April 19 that when he had once asked the SP candidate Shafiq ur Rehman about his lineage, he had stated that he is “Babur ki Aulad” (descended from Babur).

He added, “Our work is to highlight the opposition’s weakness in front of the people. We do not mind it even when the Congress or the Samajwadi Party abuse us during their election campaigning. If we revert why are we called wrong?”

The EC had earlier imposed a 72-hour ban on Yogi Adityanath for his remarks during a speech that if the opposition trusts Ali, he (and the BJP) trust Bajrangbali.
