New Delhi: As Yogi Adityanth gets ready to take the oath of office for second term as UP Chief Minister, a group of businessmen from the his Assembly constituency met him and gifted a silver replica of bulldozer, a heavyweight machine which has become synonymous with BJP dispensation in the state.
Sambhu Shah & Sanjay Shah, the owners of Geeta Textiles met Yogi Adityanath at the Gorakhnath temple on Sunday and offered ‘silver bulldozer’ as victory gift.
Yogi Adityanath, who defeated closest rival by over 1 lakh votes from the Gorakhpur Assembly seat, was all smiles while receiving the ‘silver bulldozer’.
Bulldozer became a big rallying point during the Assembly elections, so much so, that from campaigning to victory, the supporters of saffron party carried small replicas of bulldozers from election gatherings to victory marches.
Yogi Adityanath, often referred as the ‘Maharaj ji’ earned the sobriquet of ‘Bulldozer baba’ during the Assembly elections. During five-year tenure, Yogi govt deployed bulldozers to raze the ill-gotten wealth & property of mafias & dons in the state.
Even after BJP swept the state, many BJP supporters were seen riding bulldozers affixed with party flags participating in the victory rallies.
‘Bulldozer Politics’ trumped the politics of caste-based politics and it was the decimation & annihilation of mafias & dons in the state that led to decisive victory for BJP. Under the weight of bulldozer, SP’s mandal politics miserably failed to challenge the Yogi dispensation.
At a couple of election rallies, CM Yogi also mentioned about bulldozers taking rest and currently under maintenance. He said bulldozers will get in action mode again, after elections.
