Corrupt politicians can’t be supporters of social justice: Yogi to defectors

Gorakhpur, Jan 14(UNI) Hitting out at the leaders who left BJP recently on the name of social justice, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that those who do politics of dynasty and are neck-deep in corruption cannot be supporters of social justice.

“Social justice means extending the benefits of the government schemes to every poor, every section of the society and there should be no socio-economic discrimination against them. And, this is the basic mantra of BJP,” Chief Minister said while interacting with the media persons after a lunch at a Dalit’s house near Jhungia Gate here on Friday.

He said that he has come to this Dalit settlement to give the message of good governance and development and fulfill the resolve to eliminate the spirit of untouchability completely.

“Establishment of an egalitarian society, corruption-free, crime-free system is part of good governance,” the CM said.

Yogi said that in the last five years, the government has brought the benefits of welfare schemes to every village and to the doorsteps of every poor, every farmer, laborer, woman, youth without any discrimination.

“The result is that 45 lakh poor people have got and 2.61 crore poor have toilets at their houses. Go to any Dalit Basti the impression of benefits of government schemes will be visible. During the Corona epidemic, people are being given free ration. All this is part of social justice,” he said.

CM Yogi said that if we look at the Samajwadi Party government, it had given only 18,000 houses in five years. “People getting patronage from government grabbed the houses meant for the poor and even grabbed their land. If this is social harmony, then I oppose it,” Yogi said.
