‘If Modi becomes PM… aag lag jayegi’

Yadav largely trained his guns on Modi and said the possibility that he would become the PM was a threat to the country.

Mahuchopra/ Mewat | Updated: March 14, 2014 9:51 pm

In the middle of his campaign through rural Haryana, AAP leader and candidate from the Gurgaon Lok Sabha seat Yogendra Yadav addressed a number of “nukkad sabhas” Thursday, where he said that if Narendra Modi were to become the Prime Minister, questions relating to India’s Partition would be asked again.

AAP issues rejoinder, The Indian Express clarifies

Yadav said people would have to decide if they wanted to walk on the path of “Modi” or of Gandhi, who had envisioned a secular India, where “no one community would be a thekedaar”.

With his campaign trail taking him through the Mewat region, where Meo Muslims are a significant vote share, Yadav largely trained his guns on Modi and said the possibility that he would become the PM was a threat to the country. “It is not a danger just to Muslims or to Hindus, but to all of Hindustan.

This is a man, who despite being Gujarat’s chief minister, has never apologised for the riots in 2002 and instead rubbed salt on the wounds. If he becomes the PM, questions of partition will come up again,” he said.

“In 1947, it was decided that Pakistan would be a one religion country, while India would embrace everyone — Hindu, Muslim, Tamil, Bengali. In fact, when there were so many fleeing, Gandhi came to Ghaseda village in Mewat, folded his hands and asked people not to leave and 70,000 people returned home. That principle is now in danger.

If he becomes Prime Minister, one community could become thekedaar, aag lag jayegi. We have seen Sri Lanka burn before, and India could too. We have to decide if we want to walk on Gandhi’s path or Modi’s path,” he said, atop a jeep at Mahuchopra village.

Yadav also said there was only one party that could stand in Modi’s way, with only Kejriwal taking a stand against him. Addressing small gatherings of around 50 people at various places, he said, “The Congress has left the maidan a long time ago, unable to stop Modi. The INLD has already stated at the Rewari rally that Modi held, that they want to help him to the throne in Delhi.

The only danger in this constituency is from Mewat and they will try and divide the vote. It is upto you to to stand together.”

    This type of talk only shows the talker in poor light.Probably he thought by frightening people by imagined insecurity that will befall them if somebody becomes a Primeminister shows lack of capacity to take the bull by the horns.

          He is anti-national. Why people vote for this type of persons? If he was a political leader in US then he would be thrown to jail under national security act.

              Mr. Yadav seems to be apologetic about India being a majority Hindu state

                      I am amazed to read this statement from mr yadav. Before this statement , he was considered to be a balance person who will not use offensive word and think before he expressed his views. his statement that modi as prime minister will lead to parion , only indicates that he is no way better than any other politician of the day and he will go down to any level to win election. AAM Party has become one more party in election and one should not expect any thing new from it even if they win some seats.

                        Dear Delhites, dont get carried way by the AAP theatrics. Most of the supporters are loud mouthed and noisy and act like street rowdies always ready for brawl. Their atude is always to blame others and pick negative issues about others. Ask any one who is 40 yrs old, we have seen several such people in college and work places who can never do any proper work but always want to fight and blame others. AAP is full of those. They let go a golden chance of ruling Delhi for 5 years and proving themselves and instead jumped into loksabha polls which will give them nothing. What will they do with5 or 10 or 20 seats? Pl vote for Modi and lets give Modi ONE chance!

                          Yogendra yadav is a leftist and hence his ideas are anti national with regards to Kashmir and Khaps panchayat. Just soft spoken doesn't mean intelligent and correct.

                                          What future? AAP has not announced any plan or policy to revive the economy, fix our border disputes etc. They are a one-agenda party. Jan Lokpal Bill will not magically secure our future.Right now need of the hour is Modi. Yadav is playing on empty fears.

                                            Agree. He also has no plans for India's young generation for improving quality of life. His team was given a chance in Delhi and only thing his company did different was to stage a dharna to protest, did nothing for common man. If he comes to power his partymen will run the country same way as they ran Delhi. This party is morally corrupt.
