Ever since Yogi Adityanath’s name was confirmed for the post of CM, some sections of the society have questioned it by bringing up his previous controversial statements. However, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli believes it is just an attempt to create insecurity among people. “A number of political parties in Uttar Pradesh are trying to create fear mongery. They are constantly trying to raise questions, they are constantly trying to raise issues as in the government in Uttar Pradesh will follow some kind of agenda which will not be in favour of people of Uttar Pradesh,” Kohli told ANI.

“The BJP, at the Centre or in the states, follow the idea of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas and Yogi Adityanath ji also said yesterday that the government is there for every person of Uttar Pradesh. I don’t know why these political parties are trying to create a sense of insecurity amongst people. Because probably they don’t have a positive agenda and this is the only basis on which they can do politics,” he added.
