I Am A Proud Hindu, I Don’t Celebrate Eid: UP CM Yogi Adityanath

UP Chief minister Yogi Adityanath in the state assembly on Tuesday said, ‘I am proud to say I am a Hindu. I do not celebrate Eid. But, if anyone wants to celebrate, then the government is duty bound to support them and provide safety.’ He was responding to Leader of Opposition Ram Govind Chaudhary’s remark that Yogi is the CM only to ‘so-called Hindus’.

Replying to the address of the Governor to the house, the CM further said, ‘We are not the kind of Hindus who wear a janeu (a sacred thread) in their homes but go out and wear ‘topi’ when in public. Only hypocrites do that.’

Taking a dig at Samajwadi Party and BSP, he said that while their governments used to teach students “Ga se Gadha”, his government had changed it to “Ga se Ganesha”.

Cautioning the opposition, Yogi claimed that the way the red flag of communists party was brought down in Tripura, the red cap, which is symbolic of Samajwadi Party, will be brought down in the same way in UP.
