Deputy CM Keshav Maurya said – Priyanka is ‘Twitter Vadra’, big deal if Congress retains its 7 seats

Rejecting any challenge from Vadra, the National General Secretary of Congress and in-charge of Uttar Pradesh affairs, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday mocked him and called him ‘Twitter Vadra’ and claimed that if Congress last time ( If he retains only the seven seats he had won in the 2017 assembly elections, it will be a big achievement for him. Rejecting challenges from the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in the assembly elections to be held early next year, Maurya claimed that the number of seats these two parties got in the 2017 elections, If they achieve that much, they should be happy. The Deputy Chief Minister denied giving any importance to Aam Aadmi Party and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM in Uttar Pradesh politics and called them “vote katwa”. When asked who would be the chief minister’s face for the BJP in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Maurya refrained from giving a direct answer. Maurya, who was behind Yogi Adityanath in the race for the chief minister’s post last time, said the decision on this is taken by the party’s central leadership after consultations with the MLAs. To a question on whether the party would get any benefit after Congress announced 40 per cent ticket to women, he said, “Congress does not exist in UP. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he got two MPs from UP. And in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, his number of MPs from Uttar Pradesh was reduced to one. It will be a big achievement for the Congress.The senior BJP leader said that almost the same situation is with the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, whose tenure people have not forgotten and will never forget, because their governments have corruption, crime, encouragement to the mafia, Casteism and appeasement prevailed. In the last election, the BJP got 325 seats, including allies, and the SP 47 in the 403-member UP assembly, while the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party had to be content with 19 seats, he said. Parties (SP and BSP) are talking about backward, upper castes and dalits But the reality is that they are not well wishers of anyone. “They only want to gain power, exploit the people and fill their pockets with public money,” Maurya said. Asked if he thinks Priyanka Gandhi has established herself as an alternative to the BJP in UP, Maurya said, “I think you (media) are seeing her more in the role of opposition. I call Priyanka Gandhi Vadra ji- ‘Twitter Vadra’. I don’t think there is anyone in Congress except those who want to take her pictures. Priyanka Gandhi, be it Rahul Gandhi or any other Congress leader, taking her photos Master has been achieved.” The Deputy Chief Minister claimed, “They are ahead of SP and BSP in the race for photographing, but, these three parties have failed to make a place in the hearts of the people.” To a question on who would be the BJP’s chief ministerial face in the 2022 UP assembly elections, Maurya gave a straightforward answer, “Who am I to decide this, we have our central leadership, central observers come and central The Legislature Party leader is elected by the newly elected MLAs in the presence of observers.” He said, “At present, respected Yogi Adityanath ji is our chief minister and Yogi ji and we are making efforts to ensure BJP’s victory in the Uttar Pradesh elections. Maurya said, “In the 2017 UP assembly elections, we won 325 seats and our effort is how can we win more than 325 seats this time. It is a challenge for us.” When asked about SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s claim of his party winning 400 seats, Maurya said, “How many seats was Akhilesh Yadav claiming to win in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and 2017 assembly polls? In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, he also dreamed of becoming the Prime Minister. Eventually, the SP’s claims were found to be hollow. “There is no one in his organization at the grassroots level except criminals and mafia. They do politics on the basis of caste and appeasement. On the opposition parties resorting to “soft-Hindutva”, Maurya said, “This is an ideological victory of the BJP.”
