GORAKHPUR: Uttar Pradesh caretaker Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday participated in the traditional Bhagwan Narsingh Shobhayatra at Ghantaghar here, and said that people have chosen nationalism, good governance and development in the recently-concluded Assembly elections.

After performing the ‘aarti', Adityanath played holi with full enthusiasm with colour and flower petals amidst slogans of 'Yogi Yogi' and 'Jai Shri Ram'.

"This is the first time after Independence that the people gave victory to the BJP in all the nine Assembly seats in Gorakhpur and also in 27 out of 28 seats in the division. The festival gives us the message that we emerge victorious if we collectively face the challenges. You all became winners under the guidance of Prime Minister Modi in the highly challenging elections. People chose nationalism, good governance and development," he said addressing the crowd.

“In the society where Holika and Hirankashyap are present (in any form), Bhakt Prahlad and Bhagwan Narsingh are also present in the form of victory of good over evil. The festival of colour is the symbol of unity and inspires us to move on the path of righteousness," he said.

According to Hindu mythology, Hirankashyap, a tyrant, was killed by Narsingh, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Describing the efforts of the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government to fight hunger and malnutrition during the COVID-19 pandemic, Adityanath said, "The double-engine government has not done any charity, but only discharged its responsibility by giving free ration to 80 crore people in the country and 15 crore people in the state. The government not only saved people's lives but also their livelihoods."
