Hardoi (Uttar Pradesh): Om Prakash Rajbhar, a cabinet minister in Yogi Adityanath cabinet in Uttar Pradesh on Monday said that VHP’s Dharma Sabha in Ayodhya, was a planned conspiracy to disrupt peace but the attempt was foiled by the Muslims by showing wisdom and maintaing calm.
Rajbhar while addressing a program organised by Andolan Manch at a college in Kachauna village in Hardoi District of Uttar Pradesh said as the elections draw near BJP remembers Ram Ji and the name of Lord Ram is used as an election issue.
"Shiv Sena, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, other like-minded organisations and Sadhus and Saints strived to disrupt peace in Ayodhya, but the people of minority community wisely kept silent and foiled their efforts", Rajbhar said.
Rajbhar said there are many important issues like unemployment that need to be addressed immediately. "When I talk of unemployment and the rights of oppressed people, the government doesn’t listen", he said urging the oppressed sections to strive for their rights.
Rajbhar's comments were made at the backdrop of VHP's Dharma Sabha and Shiv Sena's rally simultaenously organised in Ayodhya on Sunday November 25, 2018. The two Hindu extremists group had claimed large scale support for the two events. The VHP in fact claimed that more than 3 lakh people from all across India will attend the Dahrma Sabha. In the end, however, around 30 to 40 thousand people turned up for the event.
Shiv Sena's rally was even a bigger failure. Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray had flown to Uttar Pradesh with his family reportedly in a chartered plane owned by Reliance. Besides poor turnout, he was greeted with black flags by the Faizabad traders' body.
