Kawardha, November 4, 2023: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, addressing a poll rally in Kawardha Assembly seat, pledged to take action against those creating chaos under the guise of “love jihad” and cow smuggling in Chhattisgarh if the Bharatiya Janata Party secures power in the state.


Adityanath criticized the Congress, labeling it as a “problem for the country, society, and the public,” and referred to their victory in the 2018 polls in Chhattisgarh as a “mistake.” He claimed that during their rule, Ram Navami processions were banned, and a worker opposing “love jihad” was brutally murdered.


The UP Chief Minister highlighted the success of the “double engine government” in Uttar Pradesh, where love jihad has been banned through legislation. He urged Chhattisgarh to elect a similar government, promising action against disturbances related to love jihad, cow smuggling, and the mining mafia.


Love jihad, a term used by right-wing activists, alleges a conspiracy by Muslim men to convert Hindu women through marriage. Adityanath emphasized the need to prevent illegal conversions.


Adityanath stated, “Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh have a very cordial relationship. For the people of Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh is like their maternal home.” He criticized the Congress for placing individuals who, according to him, do not have the state’s best interests at heart in key positions.


Accusing the Bhupesh Baghel government of corruption, Adityanath lauded the previous 15 years of BJP rule in Chhattisgarh for the state’s development. He blamed the Congress for disrupting progress in the last five years, accusing the party of promoting terrorism, separatism, appeasement, Naxalism, corruption, and anarchy.


Adityanath underlined the BJP’s commitment to governance based on development, good governance, and security, citing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership as an example. He accused the Congress of deceiving the people of Chhattisgarh and alleged involvement in various scams.


Assembly elections in Chhattisgarh are scheduled to take place in two phases on November 7 and 17, with vote counting set for December 3.
