Chirag Paswan joins BJP aligns against Kanwar Yatra regulation in UP

“We have to fill up this gap between these two classes,” he added.

Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) leader Chirag Paswan has joined a chorus of BJP allies opposing a police advisory in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh asking restaurants or eateries along the Kanwar Yatra route to display the names of their owners.

Paswan said that he felt such steps are nothing but the creation of divisions along caste or religious lines. According to him, society is divided only into two classes “the rich and the poor” where people from all castes and religions are found. “We have to fill up this gap between these two classes,” he added.

“It is the responsibility of every government to work for the poor, and the poor include Dalits, backward classes, upper castes, and Muslims. Whenever this divide comes in the name of caste or religion, I do not think any taught youthful individual, independent of caste or religion, is influenced by such things”.

Another BJP ally, the Janata Dal-United, has also joined the chorus and asked the Uttar Pradesh government to withdraw its Muzaffarnagar order. JD(U) leader KC Tyagi pointed out that in Bihar, a much bigger Kanwar Yatra takes place without such restrictions. “The prohibitions in UP go against the principle of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ propounded by the Prime Minister,” Tyagi said on Saturday while demanding withdrawal of the order as no such restrictions are there in Bihar, Rajasthan, and Jharkhand.

The advisory was also slammed by the Chaudhary-led RLD. According to RLD National General Secretary Trilok Tyagi, making nameplates compulsory for vendors is something wrong and illogical. Customers should have the freedom to choose where they want to shop, he said, citing double standards by pointing to no such restriction over alcohol.

He said if religious purity is the concern, then alcohol should also be banned. He made it clear that small shops run by the poor shall not be harassed. In short, Chirag Paswan and other BJP allies have opposed the new arrangements made in the eateries along the Kanwar Yatra route in Uttar Pradesh.

According to them, these would only lead to division of people where some actual problems of the society are not discussed or sorted out. Paswan and others called for bridging gaps between the rich and the poor and ensuring support for all sections of people with no discrimination based on caste or religion.

Congress MLA Harimohan Sahrma on Wednesday slammed the BJP MLA Balmukundacharya for his derogatory remarks against Muslims saying, the ruling party’s intention is just to target the Muslim Community.

Earlier, the Rajasthan BJP MLA triggered a controversy after he targeted the Muslim community indirectly by saying, 36 children and 4 begums are wrong. According to him, the population control laws are the necessity of the hour.

In a video message shared on a social media platform, the BJP leader could be heard saying there is a huge problem with the increasing population. There is a community which has ‘chhatis bacche and char begum’. There are countless cases where this is wrong. There should be an equal law for everyone; otherwise, how will the country move forward, said BJP MLA.

Asserting that he said there is nothing wrong with population laws. The way the population is increasing, there is a need for more food and housing. This is a hurdle in growth. If we want to become a prosperous and developed country, there should be a collective agreement on this, and population laws should be made which is beneficial for all, he added.

He said that a sister came to his office and said she was the third wife of her husband, and he was going to bring her fourth. He said he advised her that now there is a law against it and she should take the help of the police. The BJP MLA further said that it is not a matter of government or non-government benefits rather the point is that in the country, some families say ’hum do hamare do’, while some say if birth is happening, let it happen as it is God’s will. There is a need to look at this, he asserted.

Earlier on Sunday, Urban Development and Housing Minister Jhabar Singh Kharra said efforts were being made by the Central government to ensure that every household who have more than two or three children will not get the benefits of any government facilities.

In a major setback to Ajit Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party, four top leaders have resigned from the party in Maharashtra’s Pimpri Chinchwad after a poor performance in the recent Lok Sabha election and are set to join the Sharad Pawar-led party.

President of the Pimpri-Chinchwad unit, Ajit Gavahane, Yash Sane, a student leader, and two former corporators, Rahul Bhosale and Pankaj Bhalekar were the leaders who have parted ways from Ajit Pawar’s party.

Speaking to media, Gavahane said that he resigned from the party on July 16 and today “we will have a meeting with all ex-corporators of another Vidhan Sabha constituency. We will accordingly decide our upcoming strategy. We are going to take blessings of Pawar Sahab (Sharad Pawar). We will make a decision together”, he added.

The decision of leaders from the Ajit fraction comes amid buzz that they might shift their allegiance to the Sharad Pawar party. Earlier, speaking to the media, Sharad Pawar said those who tried to weaken his party would not be taken in, but he would welcome leaders who would not hurt the reputation of the party.

He said that those who wanted to weaken the party would not be taken in. But those leaders who would help strengthen the organization and not hurt the image of the party would be taken in, he added.

The Pawar family split into two political parties after a rebellion by Ajit Pawar against his uncle and NCP founder, Sharad Pawar, in 2023. Sharad Pawar remained in the Opposition camp, while Ajit Pawar joined the Mahayuti government led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and was rewarded with the post of his deputy.

Ajit Pawar’s party contested the Lok Sabha elections as part of the BJP-led NDA but only managed to win one seat, Raigad, while his uncle’s party secured eight seats.
