Adityanath hasn't taken day off in over 4yrs: Deputy CM
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not taken a day off from work in seven years and similarly Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also took no holiday in the last four-and-a-half years and spent time in public service, state's Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said on Sunday. Sharma was speaking while addressing a prabuddh sammelan (meeting of intellectuals) in Greater Noida.
BJP doesn't discriminate on the basis of religion: Sharma
He also said his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) does not discriminate against people on the basis of religion and believes in taking together every section of society. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not take a day's leave during his tenure of seven years and all his time has been spent in the service of the public," Sharma said, according to an official statement.
A true patriot is capable of bringing about change: Sharma
"Similarly, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also did not take a day off and this is the reason that the country and the state are moving on a development path," he added. He said a "true patriot is one who works not for himself but for the society" and "such a person is capable of bringing about a change."
All schemes run by the government have benefited people: Sharma
"The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) does not discriminate in the name of caste and sect. In the last four-and-a-half years, all the schemes run by the government have been implemented for every section and people benefited," he said.
Education, teachers and students are a priority for BJP: Sharma
"The BJP doesn't discriminate between Hindus and Muslims, that is why during the tenure of this government (in UP), there was no Hindu Muslim riot at a single place," he said in the statement. Earlier in the day, Sharma, a member of the Legislative Council (MLC), took to Twitter and said education, teachers and students are a priority section for the BJP-led government.
