UP alliance infected by green virus, Modi anti-virus to check it: CM Yogi






Lucknow: Undeterred by the Election Commission reprimand on the “Modi ki sena” remark, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that the UP alliance was also infected by the green virus and that Modi was the anti-virus to check it.

In a series of tweets after the mahagatbandhan’s first rally in Deoband on Sunday, CM Yogi said “mahamilawati thugbandhan walley bhi harey virus se sankramit hain” (the adulterated alliance of swindlers is also infected by the green virus).

According to him, the virus included strains of casteism, dynastic rule, corruption and loot.


“But there is nothing to worry. Anti-virus (read Modi) has a cure. Till our Modi ji is there the country and the state should be least bothered about this virus”.

Yogi charged those who indulge in the hypocrisy of respecting all religion and secularism of insulting the Constitution by demanding the votes of only one religion.

“In the rally, they said that Muslim votes should not be split. This has revealed their true face. Without a ruckus as if no one heard them, but the people understand everything,” Yogi tweeted.

Clearly referring to no special sops for the minorities in the Samajwadi party’s vision document, CM Yogi said that due to the fear of the strong anti-virus they did not mention the green colour in their manifesto.

“For their permanent treatment, a strong anti-virus is needed which you, the people of Uttar Pradesh are. This time you should cure this virus so completely that it never reappears anywhere in the country.” It may be recalled that on April 5, CM Yogi had similarly described Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) as a “virus” that had infected the Congress.

He had made the statement in the context of the Muslim League flags visible during the road show on the day Congress president Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination from Wayanad in Kerala

Taking exception to the statement, the Muslim League has lodged a complaint with the Election Commission against Yogi.

Kashmir integral part of India, says Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind

Press Trust of India



Top Muslim body Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JuH) on Thursday came out in support of the Centre’s decision of abrogating provisions of Article 370, saying Kashmir is an “integral part” of the country and the welfare of people in the Valley lies in their integration with India.

In the resolution passed in its annual general meeting held in New Delhi, JuH rallied for a united India.

“It is our belief that the welfare of the people of Kashmir lies in getting integrated with India. The inimical forces and the neighbouring country are bent upon destroying Kashmir. The oppressed and beleaguered people of Kashmir are stuck between opposing forces,” it said, without mentioning Article 370.


“JuH stands steadfastly for the unity and integrity of the country and has accorded it paramount importance. As such it can never support any separatist movement, rather it considers such movements not only harmful for India but also for the people of Kashmir,” it said.

It also said that the current situation in Kashmir demands that peaceful initiatives be launched to maintain peace and security in the region, especially in the view of the repercussions of clash of “atomic powers”.

The Muslim body also appealed to the government of India to protect the people of Kashmir and their property while respecting human rights.

“It must use every possible constitutional means for bringing back normalcy in the region and winning the hearts of the people of Kashmir,” it said.
