Poll talk banned, Yogi turns to Hanuman Chalisa

Ordered not to campaign for 72 hours by the Election Commission, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday headed to Lucknow’s famous Hanuman Setu temple.

Adityanath, who is also the chief priest of Gorakhnath temple in eastern Uttar Pradesh, was at the temple for nearly 25 minutes where he recited Hanuman Chalisa. The Chief Minister courted controversy over his ‘Ali, Bajrang Bali’ remark, in apparent response to BSP chief Mayawati’s speech during an election rally. Mayawati, in her speech at a rally in Saharanpur’s Deoband on April 7, had appealed to Muslims to vote for the alliance and not divide their vote by supporting another political party. 

Two days later, according to the Election Commission, Yogi Adityanath told a rally in Meerut about Mayawati’s speech and said: “If the Congress, SP and BSP have faith in ‘Ali’, we have faith in ‘Bajrang Bali’, the followers of Bajrang Bali will not tolerate them.”

This invited a 72-hour gag order for Adityanath and 48 hours for Mayawati. The ban on Uttar Pradesh CM is for a longer duration because this is his second code violation.
