THE BJP doesn’t distinguish between Hindus and Muslims and considers all of Uttar Pradesh as one, Deputy Chief Minister-designate Keshav Prasad Maurya told The Sunday Express, hours after he was named to the post.

“Muslims have no reason to worry,” Maurya said, reiterating the Prime Minister’s message of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. “We consider all of UP population as one and we don’t distinguish it as Hindu and Muslim. Ham Musalmanon ko alag se nahin dekhte. Hamare liye sabhi UP-wasi ek hain (We don’t see Muslims as separate. For us, all the people of UP are one). We will work for the development of all without any bias against any community and religion,” Maurya, a former VHP leader, said, speaking over the phone.

The policies and priorities of the new government, he added, would be based on the BJP manifesto, which the party had named Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra (Resolution for People’s Welfare). Asked about not being made CM despite being the state party president, Maurya said he had no complaints, no “malaal (anguish)”. “I am a worker of the BJP. I will fulfill whatever responsibilities the party assigns to me.”

    Narration of Hindus and Muslims should be vanished. Only description should be used Indians. lt;br/gt;Tho who brings in religion take them to task. Implementation of Uniform Civil Code should start from UP.

          Hinduism is a way of life and not a religion and cannot be forced on any one to practice It's a solid base of idolatry and nothing else, In present scenario the RSS main branch the BJP which has managed to manite the ordinary hindu brethen, are now holding their head high in many states winning the elections However the main manifesto and agenda is HINDUTVA. Please note religious places like mandirs, masjids,churches and e.t.c will not feed the common man's stomach You are the temple of God, if you keep it clean there is no need build structures we all are small temples and god dwells in us,by our wrong acts he goes away from us. Our country's today elect are trying to practice fanatism typical of stan they are finished we are waiting to get ourselves finished Leaders are elected to rule the nation and not decide citizen's personal faith.Stop digging out the past history, you have not been given mandate to be a historian, but to administer the day to day affairs and execute the biz. which benefit the citizens in the long run and prosper our nation and not repeat the fallacy of the past governments. I'm Sorry but time will tell what will go wrong in our country.

            i m sorry you are enough educated enough but due to convent style education you cannot see good in hindus or the fighters for hindus cause. but that never says kill anti-hindus or non-believers. why would one rebel?? its a basic question . link those answers and you will find the correct answer but remove your anti-rss lenses see from a neutral perspective unbiased. well even the thought of yogi ji in the cm's race had surprised me as well many of us. Lets wait and see how he performs, if not madi ji has a whip .pray for the best. lt;br/gt;everything happens for the good.

                The beauty of Indian democracy is that anyone who has majority can be in power. It can be a father of Church, Imam or a Hindu Holy man. Everyone will be forced to respect their chair and position, not because they are good, but because they have to face more elections.

                    The most inconvenient fact is -- " India is secular because Hinduism is secular" -- It is not a monotheist religion and allowed many sub segments ( eg. buddism) and other religions to enter ( even allowed them to destroy) and its belief systems, as Hindu by design is democratic and religion based on question ( just refer Advhaidta or Geetha) lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Hopefully this guy well and truly follow that and govern impartially according to true Hindu principles

                        Great. I pity you. Pl name the Congress chief ministers who ruled the Indian states when there were riots between 1947 and 2001? Who was the New Delhi police chief when 1984 happened? Modi and RSS who did all these evil things? Why did congies not ban RSS all these years?

                          Modi is a citizen of India. I did not say that Modi belongs to the Pallava dynasty. I simply replied to another person. However, coming back to your question on visionary, I have no qualms in saying that Modi is a visionary. There is no doubt about it.

                            The entire secular media (fattened by congies money) cried that blood would flow in India after Modi's election. Did it happen?

                                Good writing and good thought I saw that its over 3 hours, no one bother to like it. Some people not want to discuss things because they have no argument for them to convey so they heckle others. Any extremism is wrong even in the name of religion and you rightly pointed out if people not come forward to stop this phenomena. May the right guidance for everyone.

                                            more work for nation building is done by present pm whereas the earlier regime was looting. they used caste/ religious politics to capture power and loot. all the scams were seen. then. now we have a relatively clean govt trying to address the problem of people. it is because the motive to get elected was/ is not to loot the country.so we may have a cleaner govt up which will focus more on the growth of the state. this will ensure prosperity to people of the state
