Selection Of Yogi Adityanath As UP CM Improper: Kharge

Yadgir, Karnataka: Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge today said selection of Yogi Adityanath as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister was 'improper' decision on part of the BJP. Reacting to the Yogi being selected to lead the largest State in India after BJP scored a overwhelming victory in the recent Assembly election, the Congress leader, however, said the party had chosen a 'wrong person' and it was not in the spirit of the Constitution and democracy, he claimed. Speaking to mediapersons here, Mr Kharge said that Yogi Adityanath was a controversial politician who supported sentiments that was against the Indian Constitution and gave 'hate speeches' earlier, when issues related to Constitutional Rights came up for discussion in Parliament. 'In a democratic set up such mistakes can happen. This is an example what we see in UP.' Mr Kharge, however, said that it was the internal matter of the BJP, which had secured full majority in the election. The Congress leader said, he felt, there was no problem with EVM machines in UP election as alleged by UP leaders including BSP leader Mayawati after BJP won. 'The political parties must accept the results.' To a question on Rahul Gandhi driving the Congress party and whether Priyanka Gandhi would lead Congress campaign in Karnataka in 2018 Assembly election, he said the days to come will decide about her entry into politics, Mr Kharge said.
