Yogi Adityanath mockery of Modi's 'inclusive growth' call, says CPI-M

New Delhi: Yogi Adityanath becoming the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh is a mockery of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for inclusive growth, the CPI-M said on Sunday.

"This choice by the RSS, executed by its political arm the BJP, is a deliberate move which bodes ill for the state," the Communist Party of India-Marxist said in a statement.

"The selection of Adityanath has once again exposed the oft-repeated claim of Modi that development will be its main agenda. It makes a mockery of his own slogan 'sabka saath, sabka vikas'," the CPI-M said.

"Adityanath is a known Hindutva fanatic who has a record of inciting communal violence, having a number of criminal cases pending against him. He also espouses extremely casteist views."

The CPI-M called on all democratic and secular forces in the state to unitedly work to safeguard communal amity.
