Those who understand the language of gun, deserve to be answered in the same tongue: Yogi Adityanath

Gorakhpur: Issuing a stern warning to anti-social elements, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday said that those who wanted to disturb peace and harmony and believed in the language of the gun, deserved to be answered in the same tongue.

"Everyone should be guaranteed security, but those who want to disturb peace of the society and believe in the gun culture, should be given the answer in the language of the gun itself," Adityanath said.

The UP CM also said that he has given a free hand to the law enforcement agencies to deal with such elements firmly.

''I would tell the administration that there is no need to worry about this, '' he said.

The saint-politician also warned that no political patronage or affiliation would be able to rescue those spreading anarchy or disturbing peace in the state. 

The warning from Yogi Adityanath comes at a time when the state government is facing severe Opposition onslaught over deteriorating law and order situation across the state in the wake of Kasganj violence.

Earlier speaking to reporters in the state capital, the Chief Minister also slammed the Opposition leaders for their ''rude and indecent behaviour.''

''The opposition leaders'..... rude, unparliamentary, indecorous and indecent behaviour... is despicable," he said while speaking to the reporters. 

Commenting on the way the legislators were conducting themselves inside the state assembly, Yogi Adityanath said, "This type of behaviour shatters the parliamentary tradition ... Paper balls were thrown, balloons were flown.''

The firebrand BJP leader also came down heavily on Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party for disturbing the proceedings inside the state legislative assembly.

''The use of foul language for the Governor by the Samajwadi Party members in the presence of their leaders is indeed unparliamentary and a despicable act," he said.

''This behaviour pointed to the anarchy that was there in the state under the earlier rule,'' the Chief Minister said..

"These people are yet to come out of their mindset of anarchy, which they had allowed in the state and they do not want the House to be free from that anarchy," he said.

Earlier in the morning, CM Yogi Adityanath inaugurated the Gorakhpur Industrial Development Authority building and LED road lights from Kalesar to Nausad Chauraha.

He also laid the foundation stone of a government polytechnic college in Hardi village of Sahjanwa area of the district.

''Development is the only way for prosperity. With the polytechnic becoming operational, youth will be able to get technical education in their area. If we want to stop migration from villages, we need to develop the villages," he said while speaking on the occasion. 

The monk-politician also took a jibe at his predecessors over appeasement and vote bank politics.

"Previous state governments were more interested in appeasement and vote bank politics. Samajwadi Party government was more interested in slaughterhouses and we are interested in development,'' he said, adding, ''At the place where SP government had wanted to open a slaughterhouse, we will open the gateway of development. After 26 years, the fertiliser workshop has opened."
