Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said that time has come for the Congress to “disband” as Mahatma Gandhi wanted.
Yogi Adityanath said that Gandhi had called for “disbanding of the Congress after India’s independence”.
“Bapu had called for disbanding of Congress after independence. The time has come to make Bapu’s dream a reality,” UP CM said while addressing a public rally in the poll-bound state Gujarat’s Porbandar.
Talking about the government’s commitment to providing security and ensuring prosperity in the state, Yogi said, “A huge wave of nationalism is going on in the Porbandar district of Gujarat. There is unwavering public faith in the Bharatiya Janata Party’s good governance and development.”
“Out of 403 Assembly seats in UP, Congress has only 2 seats. BJP is here to provide security and ensure prosperity in the state,” UP CM further said.
Yogi also expressed his hope that the party will come to the power again in the state.
UP CM addressed several rallies in Gujarat ahead of the state assembly election.
The Elections for the 182-member State Assembly will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5. The counting of votes will be taken up on December 8.
