Cong would have black-marketed Covid vaccines had it been in power: Yogi

Panna/Ashok Nagar/Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Nov 15 (FN Agency) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath launched a scathing attack on Congress on Wednesday and said that had the party been in power during the Covid era, the vaccine might not have been developed. On the final day of campaigning for assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, while canvassing in favour of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate, Yogi said that even if scientists had developed it, Congress members could have engaged in black marketeering of the vaccine as they did with cylinders. Remembering Lord Birsa Munda, he said that earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited his birthplace and paid obeisance. Acknowledging the tribal community’s commitment to nature and the environment, he contrasted it with the pollution issues in Delhi, where the Supreme Court and NGT had to impose bans on numerous industries. The UP CM congratulated people on the occasion of Bhaiya Dooj. He said that Congress hatched a plot against BJP leaders, but the judiciary vindicated them.Yogi held the first public meeting in support of BJP candidate Prahlad Lodhi from the Powai assembly constituency.

He spoke about Prahlad Lodhi’s harassment by the Congress, emphasising his resilience. He mentioned that Panna is setting a new development standard, noting that under the double-engine government, industries like JK Cement are now being set up. He highlighted the discovery of a diamond mine, projecting it to generate significant employment opportunities. The CM said, “Congress leaders used to say that Muslims have the first right to the country’s resources. They did not prioritise the poor, farmers, youth, mothers and sisters, but PM Modi introduced and implemented the slogan of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. “In the second public gathering, Yogi sought votes for candidates Jajpal Singh Jajji from Ashok Nagar, Brijendra Singh Yadav from Mungawali and Jagannath Singh Raghuvanshi from Chanderi. He asserted that if Congress had been in power during the Covid pandemic, they would have black-marketed the vaccine just like they did with cylinders. He praised the quality of Madhya Pradesh’s wheat, stating that it reaches around the world, contributing to the production of delicious bread. The CM emphasised that for the double-engine government, the election is not just a political event but a strategic plan to accelerate development at the pace of a bullet train.

Discussing the challenges faced by Jajpal Singh due to Congress, he highlighted his resilience and determination to serve despite obstacles. He said that Lord Shri Ram was coming to Ayodhya and Bajrang Bali needed to be installed in Ashok Nagar. He proposed that the installation of a 112-foot-high statue of Bajrang Bali in the area would eliminate ghosts, curfews, and disturbances.Yogi said that the mace of Bajrang Bali serves as the solution to curfew, crime and the mafia.In his third public meeting in support of BJP’s Vishnu Khatri in the Berasia assembly constituency, he questioned why, despite Congress ruling for 55-60 years, the poor did not receive amenities such as toilets, housing, health insurance, and electricity. Accusing Congress of engaging in appeasement politics, the CM said that enemies are aware that India won’t tolerate any aggression. “In the previous Congress regime, curfews during festivals were common, but with the change in government, there is no imposition of curfew and families now actively participate in events with enthusiasm,” he said.
