MALAPPURAM:  Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s tweet that the Congress was affected by a virus called Muslim League showed his utmost ignorance, said IUML national general secretary PK Kunhalikutty.  “Yogi has made such statements earlier too. They all have backfired. And this also will,” Kunhalikutty told reporters. He said Yogi might have forgotten the fact BJP has struck pre-poll alliances with various ‘green flag’ parties at various places.


“These things won’t be an impediment on Rahul’s path to victory. Rahul’s Nagpur rally was a big hit. He received an overwhelming response in Wayanad the other day too. All these have upset the BJP,” he said. “Adityanath is addressing vacant chairs in UP. So they are bringing up such silly issues to criticise Rahul Gandhi and the Muslim League,” he added.

He is igniting communal sentiments: Chennithala

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala has said Yogi’s statement is a challenge towards the Muslim community and other minorities. “He is trying to play the old tactic of igniting communal sentiments. People will reject the politics of hatred by the BJP.”
