When UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called Karnataka “the land of Hanuman” that was ruled by the erstwhile Vijayanagara Empire, Congress, “instead of worshipping Hanuman and Vijayanagar, was worshiping Tipu Sultan, display of his political dare and combativeness rattled Siddaramaiah, Chief Minister of Karnataka, to remember that he is also a Hindu.
Reaching power via secularism actually ‘pseudo secularism’ has been like a cakewalk for Congress in Karnataka. Siddaramaiah Government appeases and flatters Muslims by celebrating Tipu Jayanti, a brutal killer of Hindus and a mass rapist, just because he was a Muslim ruler, fooling Hindus who have been brainwashed with doctored history since last 70 years in the name of secularism.
What Siddaramaiah did not realise that being a Hindu nationalist is as hard as rock in pseudo secular India. Hindutva politics can not sustain on mere gimmick of celebrating Tipu Jayanti, a bigoted who destroyed temples, butchered non Muslims and converted thousands of conquered people. Hindutva politics can survive only on basis of development & good governance.
On 19 March 2017, Yogi Adityanath inherited fake development of goondaism and nepotism by Yadav Pvt Ltd. with complete lawlessness and anarchy in Uttar Pradesh, where Hindus were forced to leave their homes in Kairana. After 10 months of his strict administration and development for all proved his mettle as an administrator with political acumen and spine.
When Siddaramaiah surviving on pseudo secularism and distributing freebies, taunted tough administrator Yogi Adityanath, UP CM gave hit him hard by reminding him that Karnataka has highest numbers of farmers committing suicide and how Siddaramaiah government transfers its honest officers.
By celebrating Tipu Jayanti, Siddaramaiah can maintain his vote bank and cunningly escapes development for all, ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas.’ But, a Hindu nationalist like Yogi Adityanath has no other option but to deliver.
