Ahead of Maharashtra Assembly polls, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath said that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's presence at election rallies in the state means Congress and NCP's defeat. "Whichever party Rahul Gandhi is going to support is bound to lose," Adityanath added. He urged people to vote for BJP to "fast- track schemes meant for the welfare of farmers".
Addressing a poll rally in Umarkhed, Adityanath said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was committed to the elimination of terrorism. Praising Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the duo has established the concept of 'Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat' (One India, Superior India) through the move.
"I learned at Nanded airport that Rahul Gandhi is to address rallies in Maharashtra," said Yogi. Adityanath, who campaigned for BJP candidate Namdev Sasane, further urged the people to vote for the BJP to fast- track schemes meant for the welfare of farmers.
The election to the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly scheduled for October 21. The poll result will be out on October 24.
