Firebrand BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has said that the massive mandate people of Uttar Pradesh have given the party in the Assembly election indicates that voters have rejected the Samajwadi-Congress combine and Bahujan Samaj Party's politics of appeasement of Muslims.
"BJP's campaign was full of positivity but those by the SP-Congress alliance and BSP focused on Muslims' appeasement. The mandate clearly shows that people have rejected appeasement politics", said Yogi Adityanath.
Taking a jibe at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Adityanath said that it was the alliance which the former stitched with Congress that helped them win whatever few seats they have finally got.
"It was the alliance which Samajwadi Party forged with Congress that ensured them win a respectable number of seats in the election", he said.
RAM TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT SOON: ADITYANATH
On the contentious issue of construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Yogi indicated that the temple would be built soon after the BJP government is formed in Uttar Pradesh.
"Ram Mandir is definitely on our agenda. Whatever we have promised in our manifesto, we will deliver on those points", the BJP MP added.
Finally, on the issue of who will the chief minister of UP be, Adityanath kept everyone guessing, stating that he was not in the race for the top post.
"I am not a contender for the chief minister's post. I will abide by the BJP parliamentary board's decision on the choice of the next chief minister", he said.
