Rahul`s remarks on UP natives a cruel joke: BJYM

BJP`s youth wing on Tuesday termed Rahul Gandhi`s remarks on natives of Uttar Pradesh as a "cruel joke".



New Delhi: BJP`s youth wing on Tuesday termed
Rahul Gandhi`s remarks on natives of Uttar Pradesh as a "cruel
joke" on them and said people of the state will avenge their
insult in the coming Assembly elections.
"Congress leaders have lost control over their language.
They keep making controversial statements to divert people`s
attention from issues like corruption, inflation and
unemployment," Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha President Anurag
Thakur said.

Addressing a rally while launching the party`s poll
campaign in Phoolpur in Uttar Pradesh yesterday, Rahul Gandhi
had asked the people of Uttar Pradesh to stop migrating to
Maharashtra and "begging".

Inaugurating a hospital in Gurgaon near here, Thakur
accused the UPA of failing on all fronts and being interested
only in the well being of a chosen few.

Targeting Gandhi, he said, "People in Uttar Pradesh are
busy earning their livelihood by doing hard work. Calling them
beggars is a cruel joke and they will surely avenge it."
On the proposed partial withdrawal of Armed Forces
Special Powers Act (AFSPA) from Jammu and Kashmir, Thakur
said, "Those who are opposing AFSPA are not concerned about
the well being of people in the state. Credit goes to the Army
for bringing peace there and it was possible only because of
this Act."

Observing that removal of AFSPA from the state will
encourage the separatists, Thakur said the BJYM will not
tolerate any such move.
