Media ‘Nautanki’: Media and Opposition lie once more to defame Yogi

After the accident with children, Chief Minister Adityanath immediately reached the spot. After meeting the relatives of the dead at Kushinagar District Hospital, he went to inspect Dudahi railway crossing where the accident took place. When the Chief Minister reached there the crowd became unruly. Some of them started shouting slogans of Vande Mataram and Bharat Mata ji.

Chief Minister Yogi had come to inspect the accident spot on the railway crossing but some of the crowd started shouting slogans of Vande Mataram and Bharat Mata ji. CM climbed the car and took a loudspeaker and said, “Stop the slogan. Stop gimmick (nautanki). This is a tragedy. It would be good if we talk about the solution to the problem. I have come to inspect the spot. Get out of here.”

Chief Minister also visited BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur after inspection of the site. After talking to the injured, he interacted with the media, “The incident is disheartening. I have come to BRD Medical College after visiting the Kushinagar District Hospital and the spot. 17 children and drivers were in that van. 13 children have died. 4 children and drivers admit here. All the facilities are being given to them.”

After the death of the children, the opposition started the work of polishing their politics in this incident. Yogi Adityanath had appealed to his supporters to stop sloganeering. The opposition served this on social media according to their own twist and said that Yogi Adityanath asked not to be nagged by the deceased’s family members and insulted them. Because of this Yogi Adityanath received a lot of criticism.

S.P. leader and spokesperson Juhie Singh tweeted:

She also shared an NDTV article claiming Yogi was calling the family’s demands ‘nautanki’.

BJP spokesman from Uttar Pradesh, Shalabh Mani Tripathi, quoted a handle which had tweeted a video in which Yogi Adityanath appears to be reprimanding family members. When the protest against Yogi Adityanath’s statement on social media started, he said that opposition should not play politics on such incidents.

The BJP spokesman wrote in his tweet – “When the painful accident happened, leaving all other work [Yogi] reached out to the victims, disregarding all security protocols, underburning, running from hospital to hospital, even then if there is such disgusting politics, then should I not answer it? The sloganeering was from some political people, not the family, this was said to them.”

He repeatedly made it clear among the people on social media that the statement of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was different, but the Opposition is doing politics on such sensitive issues by twisting it; he tweeted out a video clip showing that the supporters were shouting ‘bharat mata ki jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ slogans. He also wrote, “Look, a big lie exposed. After the painful incident of Kushinagar, when Yogi ji was running from hospital to village in the burning sunshine, some people were shouting ‘long live (zindabad)’ slogans of flattery. For this, Yogi ji reprimanded them, but the news was made that Yogi ji reprimanded the victims!”

The story was also covered by news organization ‘Breaking TUBE’

They also put out a video of this on YouTube.
