Ahead of forthcoming Lok Sabha polls, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took a dig at opposition by spinning BJP motto with that of opposition, Yogi, who is one of the BJP’s star campaigners attacked rival parties with tagline "Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas" (Development for all) and said opposition-- Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Congress-- stands for "sabka vinaash" (destruction for all).
Taking a leaf out of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's book, Yogi used abbreviations, saying "SABKA" stands for SP, BSP, and Congress. "SABKA stands for SP (Samajwadi Party), BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party) and Congress. Our Sabka slogan speaks about the development of all. Their Sabka speaks about the destruction of everyone...We stand for Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas. Yours is Sabka Saath, Sabka Vinaash," Yogi Adityanath was quoted by news agency PTI in Uttar Pradesh assembly.
UP CM Yogi also took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi-led Congress and said, "Every citizen of this country is proud of our traditions. If the Congress had tried to take pride in the country's traditions, it would not have come to its lowest tally in the state and the country. This situation has come as Congress had insulted the culture and traditions of the country."
"When you want to garner votes, you show your janeu (sacred threads worn by Hindus). People have even started telling their ''Gotra'' (sub-caste)... And even the SP did not find the Congress suitable to include it in the SP-BSP alliance," he jabbed the party.
