Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday hit out at Congress general secretary for UP, Priyanka Gandhi, over a video in which children were seen using objectionable language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Terming Priyanka Gandhi as “shehzadi”, the UP CM claimed, “I was seeing a video of the Congress’ “shehzadi” (princess) which went viral. At an age, when kids should be taught about ‘cultures’, she is sowing poison in their hearts. She is teaching them to abuse. This is the reality of the Congress party”
“Shehzadi is roaming around to show that she is a well-wisher. When there is flood and drought, then they do not remember India. At that time, they go to Italy. When elections are around, they begin to tour to show that they are the biggest well-wishers,” he said addressing an election rally here.
The chief minister also boasted about dealing with criminals with a heavy hand.
“We made it clear that criminals will either be in jail or they will be on their way to “Ram naam satya hai”,” said Yogi Adityanath.
Crediting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for getting Masood Azhar listed as a global terrorist, the chief minister said, “You would have read that UNSC has declared Masood Azhar a global terrorist. This has happened due to PM Modi’s diplomacy. The countdown for Masood Azhar has begun just like Osama bin Laden.”
Yogi also accused the rival parties of being soft on terrorism.
“First job that SP government took after coming to power in 2012 was to take back cases against terrorists,” he said while referring to the various terror attacks between 2005-2014.
“Why are Congress, SP, and BSP being so generous towards terrorists?” the CM questioned.
Taking a dig at BSP president Mayawati, the BJP leader said, “I want to ask Mayawati jee, how did you go to seek votes for the people who insulted Baba Sahib?”
The Lok Sabha polls in the state are scheduled to be conducted in all seven phases. The first four phases were held on April 11, 18, 23 and 29.
The rest three phases are scheduled to be conducted on May 06, 12 and 19. The results will be announced on May 23.
The Congress on Thursday fielded Ajay Rai from Varanasi to take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ending speculation on party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra fighting polls from the temple town in Uttar Pradesh.
The Congress also fielded Madhusudan Tiwari from Gorakhpur against BJP’s actor-turned politician Ravi Kishan.
Speculation on Priyanka Gandhi making her political debut from Varanasi was fuelled after Congress president Rahul Gandhi, to a question on whether he planned to field his sister against PM Modi, said last week, “I will leave you in suspense. Suspense is not always a bad thing.”
The Congress fielded Ajay Rai against Modi in 2014 as well.
He finished third in the contest, after Modi and Aam Aadmi Party’s Arvind Kejriwal.
Singer-actor Nick Jonas and his wife and actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas are not looking to expand their family just yet.
The 26-year-old musician was asked by Extra if he and the 36-year-old actress were going to have a child anytime soon, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Nick gave a simple four-word answer saying: “We’re taking our time.”
The couple got married in India in December last year. Priyanka and Nick had three-day wedding festivities at Jodhpur’s royal Umaid Bhawan Palace, where they exchanged wedding vows as per both Christian and Hindu rituals in two separate ceremonies.
Earlier, this week Priyanka was seen stepping out in a stylish look as she flashed her belly ring on an outing in New York. The actress showed off her piercing while sporting a cropped white top with jeans, adding a plaid multi-hued coat on Monday in the city.
Singer Joe Jonas needs “a lot of beer” for his wedding to “Game Of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, after his younger brother Nick Jonas found himself poorly prepared with alcoholic beverages at his wedding to Indian actress Priyanka Chopra.
Joe said: “I mean, we are getting married in France, so a lot of Coors Light is necessary. Not hard, really, to get that, but we needed to make sure that was going to happen.”
Joe’s beer requirements follow his younger brother Nick’ marriage to Priyanka late last year, where the singers say they “ran out” of the alcoholic beverage because they underestimated how much their guests would drink, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Nick added: “We learned a lesson from my wedding. Our friends drink a lot of beer, specifically, and we ran out of beer at the wedding, at my wedding, which was a big issue.”
Their third brother Kevin quipped that things went downhill the minute the beer was gone.
In a joint interview for “The Zach Sang Show”, he added: “It starts to get very dark very fast with hard alcohol instead. It’s just like ‘Oh, we’re doing this now? Okay.'”
Joe and Turner have not publicly confirmed the date for their wedding, but have said they’re planning on tying the knot this summer.
