Yogi Adityanath. 

Around 20 years as MP of the constituency and one year as CM of the state could not assure him that his party would win the by-poll easily, and that’s why he did not only do massive campaigning in the area but also had to resort to the stinking level of communal politics to polarize innocent voters.

GORAKHPUR — What he or his party perceives as their “strength” could actually be a sign of their “weakness”. Invoking of the name of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb has become a tested weapon for BJP to “frighten” voters on one hand and to beat its Opposition with on the other. But at the same time, it also shows that BJP and its leaders are themselves frightened that their “development work” will not win them election.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has won the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat for five consecutive times – the last time was May 2014. By-election for the seat was held on Sunday as Yogi vacated the seat after he became Chief Minister of India’s largest state in March 2017. But around 20 years as MP of the constituency and one year as CM of the state could not assure him that his party would win the by-poll easily, and that’s why he did not only do massive campaigning in the area but also had to resort to the stinking level of communal politics to polarize innocent voters.

On Friday, the last day of campaign for the by-poll, Yogi addressed his 16th public meeting here – the number itself speaks lot about his “strong” position here. On Friday alone, he addressed four election rallies. At the last rally, he said that the people of Uttar Pradesh do not want rule of “Aurangzeb” in the state. Only he can explain how Aurangzeb rule will commence in the state if his party lost the Gorakhpur seat. His party has brute majority in the Assembly and in the Lok Sabha.

Some days back, he said he is Hindu and so he does not celebrate Eid. There is no Eid around, nor had anyone asked him if he celebrates Eid or not. This all was cheap tactic to polarize voters.

However, despite all-out efforts it seems people have shown little enthusiasm for the by-election. By 4 PM on Sunday, only 40 per cent votes were cast in Gorakhpur. And in Phulpur seat, which was vacated by Yogi’s deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya, only 29 per cent polling was done.
