Mumbai: Uttar Pradesh chief minister and BJP’s star campaigner Yogi Adityanath on Saturday the POK (Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir) will become part of India when Prime Minister Narendra Modi gets a third term in office. Campaigning in Maharashtra, Mr. Adityanath said that this Lok Sabha election is a battle between “Ram bhakt” and “Ram drohi”.

Adityanath held back-to-back public meetings for BJP candidates Dr. Subhash Bhamare in Malegaon, Dr. Hemant Savara in Nalasopara and Adv Ujjwal Nikam in Mumbai. Addressing a public rally at Nalasopara in the Palghar Lok Sabha Constituency, the BJP star campaigner said that the PoK would be a part of India within six months of Prime Minister Narendra Modi taking over for the third term. “Let Mr. Modi become Prime Minister for the third time. Within the next six months, Pakistan-occupied Kashmir will also be a part of India,” he said.

Adityanath claimed that the situation in Pakistan is dire. They cannot manage the PoK, and the people of PoK want to join India, he said.

Earlier, addressing a public meeting at Malegaon Camp in Dhule Lok Sabha constituency, the UP Chief Minister slammed the Congress for wanting to survey people’s properties and imposing tax on it. He also linked the Congress’s proposed inheritance tax to Aurangzeb's oppressive Jizya tax.

“There should be no doubt that Narendra Modi is coming back once again as the Prime Minister. Inheritance tax is like the jizya imposed by Aurangzeb. Aurangzeb’s soul has crept into Congress," Adityanath said.

Campaigning for Adv Ujjwal Nikam for the Mumbai North Central Lok Sabha seat in Kurla, Yogi Aditynath said that this election is a battle between Rambhakts (the devotees of Lord Ram) and ‘Ramdrohis’. “The people are saying that those, who constructed Ram temple, will be brought back (at the centre). The UP is witnessing this slogan “Rambhakt hi Raj Karega Delhi ke”,” he said.

The UP CM said that Ujjwal Nikam is a true nationalist and is contesting on the BJP’s ticket in this seat.

Raising the issue of glorification of Ajmal Kasab, the BJP star campaigner said that the Congress is raising questions on the martyrdom of late Mumbai ATS chief Hemant Karkare and brave police officers. “By raising a question on the martyrdom of Police officers including Hemant Karkare, the Congress is shamelessly glorifying a butcher like Kasab,” he said. The BJP candidate Ujjwal Nikam had sent Kasab to the gallows.
