NEW DELHI — Campaigning for the last phase of polling, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Patna has sought votes on Ram Temple and Triple Talaq issues as the party thinks that these are the only issues left to attract voters.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has sought votes for Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, the BJP candidate from the Patna Sahib Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar, in the name of Ram temple and Triple Talaq, reports IANS.
“Ravi Shankar Prasad is the best advocate of Ram temple and it was he who should be credited for the Triple Talaq bill. Give him your support and votes,” Yogi told an election meeting in Patna on Wednesday night.
Yogi emphasised that lakhs of Ram ‘bhakts’ needed a leader like Prasad who had been fighting legally for the construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The Chief Minister also urged Muslim voters to support the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the cause of Triple Talaq.
Prasad, a sitting Rajya Sabha MP, is contesting the election from Patna Sahib after the BJP denied ticket to incumbent MP Shatrughan Sinha, who is now the Congress candidate.
