Yogi Adityanath has lost ‘moral right’ to continue as CM: NCP

Mumbai, June 17 (KMS): In the Indian state of Maharashtra, the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi ally Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has said that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has lost “moral authority” to continue in office after legal luminaries have raised questions on the action against Muslims and the ‘bulldozer’ policies.

The NCP Chief spokesperson Mahesh Tapase said that former judges and senior advocates have written to Chief Justice of India N.V. Ramanna over the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government of Uttar Pradesh, led by Yogi Adityanath and its clampdown on protests by Muslims.

The Muslim community has been holding demonstrations against the BJP spokespersons who made certain blasphemous remarks on Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him), sparking reactions in India and the Muslim world.

The UP administration has responded by ‘bulldozing’ the legitimate homes of the Muslim protesters, the UP police have detained them and the social media is flooded with videos of the police brutalities and how civil rights of the ordinary people are being crushed, the NCP leader pointed out.

“All this is happening in the country’s largest state. The CM who calls himself a Yogi has turned a blind eye to the atrocities conducted by his own administration,” said Tapase.

“The BJP’s intolerance towards Muslims and Dalits is well known and hence the time may not be far when other BJP-ruled states may adopt harsh, repressive and unconstitutional means to silence the voice of minorities. The writing is clear on the wall. The BJP leaders are trying to revive the police state as they have scant regard for the Indian Constitution,” Tapase concluded.
