World laughing at Kerala govt for failure to control Covid-19, says Yogi Adityanath | Kochi News – Times of India

KOZHIKODE: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath launched a blistering attack against the successive LDF and UDF governments in the state for failing to enact a law against “love jihad” despite observations made by the Kerala high court in 2009.
He also slammed the Left front government for disregarding the sentiments of devotees on Sabarimala issue and for its “inept handling” of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Flagging off the Vijay Yatra led by BJP state president K Surendran from Thalippaduppu in Kasaragod on Sunday, he said his government had brought a stringent law against “love jihad” and UP was witnessing steps for the construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya while Kerala’s LDF government had acted against the sentiments of devotees on Sabarimala issue.
“In 2009, the Kerala high court had said that love jihad was part of a conspiracy to turn Kerala into an Islamic state. Despite this, the state government is sleeping and no effective steps have been taken to enact a law to tackle the issue,” he said.
“Earlier the Kerala government and the chief minister used to laugh at the health infrastructure of Uttar Pradesh, but now the world is laughing at Kerala government for failing in controlling Covid-19. Despite being the most populous state in the country with a population of 24 crore, UP has only less than 2000 active cases as of today. Why is Kerala government not able to bring Covid under control,” he asked.
LDF, UDF are symbols of corruption: Yogi
Adityanath said both the LDF and UDF were symbols of corruption. “Whether it is the CPM government or the previous Congress-led government, they have not done anything for the state and are interested only in corruption and creating chaos by playing with feelings of people for political gains,” he said.
He said the Union government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has initiated construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya in accordance with the public sentiments. “It is not just a temple but a means to honour the aastha (faith) of Bharat and to take further the cause of constructing a Rashtra Mandir,” he said, thanking the people of Kerala for contributing to the cause.
He said the CPM-led state government was trying to implement a divisive agenda for furthering its political interests and alleged that it had tried to set up a halal bank in the state, which reflected its divisive mentality.
BJP state president K Surendran said the LDF government was appeasing the extremist elements in the society. The yathra held under the slogans of corruption-free Kerala, appeasement-free politics and comprehensive development of the state, marking the launch of NDA’s assembly election campaign, will conclude in Thiruvananthapuram on March 7.
