Yogi Adityanath talks about Kashi and Mathura in UP Assembly, brings up Mahabharat

Yogi Adityanath with Narendra Modi.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath hinted at a broader vision for Kashi and Mathura, echoing the parallel drawn with the Mahabharata, following the events in Ayodhya.

Speaking in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly, Yogi Adityanath drew attention to the Mahabharata, where Krishna sought five villages from the Kauravas, paralleling the current Hindu desire for the three centres of their faith—Ayodhya, Kashi, and Mathura.

He emphasised the consequences faced by the Kauravas when they refused Krishna’s request.

Turning to Ayodhya’s Ram temple, the Chief Minister expressed satisfaction at Ram Lalla’s installation. He commended the perseverance displayed in the temple’s construction and underscored the importance of honouring commitments, stating, “We do not only talk. We walk the talk.”

Adityanath addressed the delay in the consecration of the Ram temple, questioning the mindset that hindered the development of Ayodhya, Kashi, and Mathura.

He drew parallels between the curfews and prohibitions faced by Ayodhya during the previous government’s rule and the injustices suffered by the Pandavas in the Mahabharata.
