UP CM Yogi Adityanath supporting BJP said that “Earlier the state’s money used to be spent on land for kabristan. Today money is being spent on upgrade and facelift of temples,”.
Targeting previous governments in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Wednesday, “This is the difference in thinking. Those in love with kabristan used to spend public money there, those who love ‘dharma’ (religion) and ‘Sanskriti (culture) are spending the money on them”.
