During his maiden visit to his constituency since his elevation as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath on Saturday addressed a crowd at Gorakhpur’s Maharana Pratap Inter College where he said he would push through Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ in the state. Thanking the 22 crore people of Uttar Pradesh, he further said he would look at development for all in the state and won’t allow any discrimination in any form. “Na jaati, na mazhab, na ling ke naam par koi bhedbhaav hoga. Vikaas sabka hoga. Kisi ka tushtikaran nahi hoga (There won’t be any discrimination in the name of caste, religion or gender. Development is for all and appeasement for none),” Adityanath said while addressing the crowd.
This is the first time the former head priest of Gorakhnath temple is visiting his parliamentary constituency. On occasion of Yogi Adityanath’s visit, posters of him were put all over the city and people queued up outside the Gorakhnath temple where he is scheduled for a visit on Saturday.
