Jammu and Kashmir stole the attention of several news-makers today because of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The BJP leader mentioned about J&K in his vote appeal on the day state went to the first phase of the multi-phased assembly polls.  

Releasing a video in the wee hours of the day, Yogi appealed to the electorate to vote in 11 districts of the state which went to the polls today. The minister while flaunting about the work done in the field of power supply, sanitation, women safety among others went a step ahead to compare with other states and UTs as well.

Yogi touted about BJP government’s record in maintaining law and order in Uttar Pradesh. He appealed the voters to vote for the saffron party again to maintain peace in the state. 

He said that if the voters would not choose BJP in Uttar Pradesh, it will not take much time for the state to have alike conditions as that of Kashmir, Bengal and Kerala. 

In the 5:54 minute long video, talking about the law and order, Yogi said, “If you miss voting BJP, the labour of 5 years will be spoiled. It would not take much time for Uttar Pradesh to become Kashmir, Kerala and Bengal.”

Kerala CM took no time to hit back at UP CM saying, “If UP turns into Kerala, it will enjoy the best education, health services, social welfare, living standards and have a harmonious society in which people won’t be murdered in the name of religion and caste. That’s what the people of UP would want.”

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also took a jibe at Yogi saying, “From Kashmir to Kerala. From Gujarat to West Bengal. India is beautiful in all its colours. Don’t insult the spirit of India.”

Ironically Union Home Minister Amit Shah had in the past claimed that Jammu and Kashmir was witnessing development after abrogation of Article 370. The leaders have also stated that sentiments of separatism have vanished since the end of special status.
