Addressing an election rally here, Chief Minister Aditynath said, "Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh once said that Muslims have the right over the country's resources, to this I want to ask the Congress that where should the rest of the population of the country go for resources."
Hitting out at the grand old party, he said: "The politics of appeasement has led to problems like terrorism, separatism, and Naxalism...Congress and its allies have been responsible for these problems in the country."
Mocking at Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), he said: "The alliance parties have the habit of living in darkness so that they can commit theft. That is why there was the problem of electricity during SP and BSP rule in the state."
Uttar Pradesh will see polling in all seven phases of the Lok Sabha elections beginning April 11. The results will be declared on May 23.
