One Nation, One Election Is Need Of Hour: Yogi

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath speaking about ‘One Nation, One Election’ on Friday said that in a democratic set-up, with stability of government, speedy governance is needed for development and with this point of view, ‘One Nation, One Election’ is a commendable attempt.

Speaking to ANI CM Yogi said, “For a rich democracy, political stability is really important and in a democratic set-up, with the stability of government, speedy governance is needed for development, with this point of view ‘one nation, one election’ is a commendable attempt.”

Expressing his views on the policy, CM said, “We are happy that the committee formed for ‘One Nation, One Election’ is formed under the chairmanship of our former president (Ram Nath Kovind).

“For this innovative initiative, I whole heartedly want to thank PM Modi on behalf of citizens of Uttar Pradesh,” CM Yogi further added.

Highlighting the importance of the proposal, Yogi Adityanath said, ‘One Nation, One Election’ is the need of the hour and it is important as elections which were being held time and again act as an obstacle in the path of development because election procedures take at least a month and a half’s time which obstructs the development process. So it is important that Loksabha elections, Assembly elections and other kinds of elections be held at the same time.”  

“This is a great initiative not only for development but for the prosperity of democracy and stability of democracy and I welcome this initiative,” said the Chief Minister of UP.

The Union government has constituted a committee headed by former President Ram Nath Kovind to explore the possibility of ‘One Nation, One Election’ which envisages the holding of general election and state Assembly elections simultaneously.

Sources said that the committee will explore the possibility of bringing a legislation regarding it. A parliamentary standing committee, the Law Commission and Niti Ayog had earlier examined the ‘One Nation, One Election’ proposal and submitted reports on the subject. (ANI)

UP Was Once A Den Of Crime, Now It’s An Investment Hub: Modi

Uttar Pradesh is gaining fame as ‘India’s new growth engine’ across the country and the globe. The state is continuously advancing towards achieving the target of a one trillion dollar economy, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi praising the development story of UP.

“Under the leadership of CM Yogi, UP has successfully implemented the rule of law and fostered a secure environment. As a result, the state has now transformed into the ‘Most Favourable Destination’ for investment as well,” he said.

Addressing the ‘Rozgar Mela’ organised in UP, the Prime Minister targeted the anarchy prevailing in various other states across the country, drawing a comparison with Uttar Pradesh’s model of development. During the event, PM Modi encouraged others to take inspiration from UP’s advancement under the leadership of Yogi Adityanath.

The Prime Minister further highlighted that Uttar Pradesh, which was previously lagging in development and grappling with high crime rates, has now transformed into a phase of establishing law and order which has further led to remarkable progress in development.

The Prime Minister mentioned, “The atmosphere of security and the rule of law are pivotal in accelerating development, and Uttar Pradesh is the best example of this conversion.”

PM Modi remarked that Uttar Pradesh is touching new heights of progress, including increased investments. He said that this positive trajectory is attributed to the prevailing sense of security among the people, reduced crime rates, and the emergence of a society devoid of fear. He also mentioned that UP’s remarkable progress in development can be directly linked to the enforcement of these principles of law and order.

The Prime Minister further added, “It has to be understood that if you want to attract investment in the state, the first priority has to be given to security, as Uttar Pradesh has given.”

Prime Minister also stated that presently, we observe that in states where crime is prominent and a sense of security is lacking among the citizens, despite all efforts, investments remain nil. Additionally, he remarked that other states should take note and derive lessons from Uttar Pradesh.

He added that the state, once known for criminal activities, is currently experiencing remarkable growth in investments and overall progress. He said that this transformation was possible because of the zero tolerance policy of the state government towards crime.

The figures of investment are increasing in Uttar Pradesh, and not the crimes, because the work of establishing a fear-free society is continuously gaining momentum. People are instilling faith in the state, and this positive transformation is the key to the development story of Uttar Pradesh, from which other states can also take advice, the Prime Minister stated.

Muslims Should Accept Historical Mistake: Yogi On Gyanvapi Mosque Row

Amidst the controversy over the Gyanvapi Mosque complex in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that labelling Gyanvapi as a mosque complex will only lead to controversy and that the Muslim side should accept its “historical mistake” and offer a solution.

“If we call it a mosque, there will be a dispute. We should just call it Gyanvapi. I feel whoever has been blessed with sight by God, that person should see. What is a trishul (trident) doing inside a mosque? We did not put it there.

There is security inside, there are Central forces are There is a jyotirlinga, dev pratimas (idols),” Yogi Adityanath said in a podcast interview with ANI Editor Smita Prakash aired today.

Gyanvapi: Caveat Filed In Allahabad HC Over Direction For ASI Survey
Adityanath, who is also the head priest of Gorakhnath Mutt in Gorakhpur said that physical, scriptural and other archaeological evidence inside the mosque should not be overlooked.

“You can twist history but not the historic evidence that the walls (of Gyanvapi) are screaming and saying,” the chief minister said.

“I feel that a proposal should also come from the Muslim side accepting that there has been a historical mistake and that they should come up with a solution,” Yogi Adityanath said.

The Allahabad High Court is expected to give a verdict on a petition against a lower court order for a survey by the Archaeological Survey of India inside the mosque complex, except the ‘wuzukhana’ (fountain).

Varanasi Court Allows Scientific Survey Of Gyanvapi Mosque Complex

A ruling on the petition is likely on August 3.

The matter took centrestage when on May 16, last year, during the court-mandated survey, a structure — claimed to be a “Shivling” by the Hindu side and a “fountain” by the Muslim side — was found in the mosque premises.

Meanwhile in the interview with ANI, the Uttar Pradesh chief minister said that he will appeal to the Muslims community that “today we should be talking about development.”

“We can all see the plight of Pakistan. Those who sow thorns for others will themselves suffer the pain. Whatever is happening in Pakistan today is the result of what they sowed. Today Pakistan is riddled with hunger and is battling its misdeeds. That is why we should not repeat our previous mistakes,” Adityanath said.

Meanwhile, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi has lashed out at Adityanath’s remarks on the Gyanvapi issue stating that it’s a “judicial overreach”.

The AIMIM chief, a staunch critic of Yogi said that despite knowing that the matter is sub-judice he is making such a controversial statement which is directly a judicial overreach.

“Chief minister Yogi knows that the Muslim side has opposed the ASI survey in Allahabad High Court and the judgement will be delivered in a few days, still, he gave such a controversial statement, this is judicial overreach,” said Owaisi. (ANI)
