Yogi-Ji, please talk to PM Modi


Digvijaya Singh insisted the timing of the event was “unsuitable”.

New Delhi:

Congressman Digvijaya Singh, in tweets seen as regressive by many, urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to postpone the big Ram Temple launch event in Ayodhya on Wednesday, insisting the timing was “not right” and hinting that this was the reason many associated with the function had contracted coronavirus.

Prime Minister Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and other top leaders are due to attend an elaborate groundbreaking ceremony at Ayodhya on Wednesday at the site which was handed over for a Ram temple as a result of a Supreme Court verdict after decades of dispute between Hindus and Muslims.

The highlight of the event will be PM Modi installing a silver brick as a symbolic start to the construction of the temple.

“Modi-ji, how much do you want to send to the hospital by performing the revolutionary rituals? Yogi-ji, talk to the prime minister. How can you allow the violation of Sanatan Dharma? What is your compulsion,” posted Digvijaya Singh this morning.

He said priests linked to Ayodhya rituals, a UP minister, UP BJP leader and Union interior minister Amit Shah were infected with coronavirus.

“Shouldn’t the UP chief minister and the prime minister quarantine themselves? Is the 14-day quarantine only for the common man, not the prime minister?”

The Congress leader said that despite “warnings”, including by a psychic, the unsuitable date of August 5 was decided because it suited the prime minister. “Is Modi’s convenience greater than thousands of years of Hindu beliefs,” Mr. Singh said.

“Lord Ram is at the heart of the belief of millions of Hindus, please do not undermine established traditions.”

The BJP’s response to the congressional leader’s storm of tweets was also inspired by mythology. “We have seen from time immemorial, whenever something good happens, the ‘Asurs’ (demons) try to create trouble. Digvijaya is doing the same, ”Madhya Pradesh Minister Narottam Mishra said.
