Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that he washed the feet of sanitation workers just like Lord Krishna washed the feet of his friend Sudama.
Addressing four election rallies, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, said: "In Kumbh Mela at Prayagraj, Modi ji washed the feet of sanitation workers just like Lord Krishna washed the feet of Sudama."
Listing the work under the reign of Prime Minister Modi, Adityanath said, "Whatever welfare scheme we have implemented so far, we did not discriminate people in the name of caste and religion. These were implemented in the interest of the poor."
Taking a jibe at grand-alliance of SP, BSP and RLD, Adityanath said, "The elephant is riding on the bicycle, its tyres would get punctured."
Appealing for votes in favour of BJP candidate from Gorakhpur, Ravi Kishan, the UP Chief Minister said," In order to help youth in pursuing a career in the film industry, the party gave the ticket to film actor Ravi Kishan. I urge the public of Gorakhpur to vote in favour of him in large numbers."
Launching an attack on the Congress, Adityanath said, "You must have seen that what Congress could not do in 55 years, Modi did in 5 years. For the first time, Purvanchal and Eastern India have progressed.
