BJP supporters greeted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with the slogan of Bulldozer Baba zindabad

As he held his roadshow here on Friday in support of his Cabinet colleague Sidharth Nath Singh’s candidature from City (West) assembly seat.

Nearly two-km-long roadshow of the chief minister starting from Karbala Chauraha

And ending at Nakhash Kona Chauraha of the city was attended by lakhs of people, eyewitnesses said.

During the entire roadshow, which started at 5 pm

And ended at 6 pm, people carrying the BJP’s saffron flags rent the air with slogans of Jai Shri Ram and Bulldozer Baba Zindabad”.

The new term for the chief minister was first heard from Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav, who,

In a YouTube video, has claimed that a prestigious English daily has changed Yogi Adityanath’s name to Baba Bulldozer.

The term purportedly owes its origin to the extensive use of bulldozers

By the Uttar Pradesh government for demolishing illegal properties of criminals in the state.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday trained his guns on the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party,

Accusing them of promoting “mafia raj” in Uttar Pradesh during their rule as he campaigned for BJP candidates in Pratapgarh.

Though he was addressing an election rally in Rampur Khas,

From where veteran Congress leader Pramod Tiwari’s daughter Aradhna Mishra is seeking a third consecutive win,

Shah only made a passing reference to the Congress while talking about ending Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.

The SP and the BSP were the target of his attacks, signalling the BJP is not counting the grand old party much in the ongoing high-decibel electoral battle for

Uttar Pradesh, where the fifth round of voting is scheduled this Sunday.

“For 70 years, SP, BSP and Congress had been feeding Article 370 like a child in their lap which kept Kashmir divided from us.

(Prime Minister Narendra) Modi-ji’s government came to power and on August 5, 2019, PM Modi struck down Article 370, Shah said.
