PM dig at opposition: Yogi government plays ‘jail jail’ with crooks | India News – Times of India

MEERUT: Slamming previous governments in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said criminals used to play “their own games” earlier but now the Yogi Adityanath government plays “jail jail” with them. “There were tournaments of illegal land grabbing earlier,” he said while addressing the crowd after laying the foundation stone for the state’s first sports university, named after hockey icon Major Dhyanchand, to be built at a cost of Rs 700 crore.
Modi said youths will now get the right kind of opportunities in games. He said till five years ago, daughters in UP were afraid to move out of their houses after sunset but now they are “rising like stars” .
Referring to the Kairana exodus in which over 250 Hindu families are claimed to have fled due to fear of criminals, Modi said, “People of Meerut and adjoining areas can never forget how houses were set ablaze and people were forced to leave. All this while, earlier governments were indulging in their own games.”
Referring to the closure of illegal Sotiganj car scrap market in his speech — the second time he has done so in his rallies in west UP – he said Yogi govt has “ended the game of theft of cars”.
Mocking former CM Mulayam Singh Yadav without naming him, Modi said, “Governments should behave like guardians and motivate and support people with talents. It should not say ‘ladko se galtiyan ho jati hain (boys make mistakes sometime)’.” Mulayam had in 2014 said it’s wrong to give death sentence for rapes as boys make mistakes.
Modi also spoke about Meerut’s sports goods, jewellery and gajak-rewari industries. “Meerut is also known as a manufacturing hub of sports goods, which are exported to over 100 countries. This is the true meaning of ‘local for vocal’ and ‘local for global’,” said the PM. The sports university will come up in Salawa village on the outskirts of Meerut city.
