New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that Triple Talaq bill will be tabled in the Parliament once Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) comes back to power. Addressing a poll rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad, the Prime Minister said, “In western Uttar Pradesh, gundas made lives of women difficult. The Yogi Adityanath government dealt with this strictly. It is the Opposition’s mentality that compels Muslim women to suffer from triple talaq. On May 23, when election results will come and when the Modi government comes back, the Triple Talaq will be tabled in the Parliament again.”
At Sunday’s rally, PM Modi claimed there was a wave across the country in favour of BJP and the survival of the opposition grouping is difficult. He assailed BSP supremo Mayawati for seeking votes for a candidate who had called B R Ambedkar a ‘land mafia’, and also attacked the opposition alliance, saying the ‘mahamilavat’ will face a “mahagiravat”– a grand fall. “Mahamilavat ka mahagiravat tay hai (the grand fall of the highly adulterated alliance is certain),” he said.
Slamming the opposition alliance, Modi termed them as ‘Mahamilavat’ and stated that the SP-BSP are facing an “existential crisis” and, therefore, they have “put behind all the expletives” they used against each other. “Now, they have coined a new slogan — ‘mera bhi maaf, tumhara bhi maaf, varna ho jayenge donon saaf’ (Let’s forgive each other else both of us will be wiped out),” Modi added.
In Uttar Pradesh, the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party is contesting 38 Lok Sabha seats, while the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party (SP) has fielded candidates on 37 parliamentary constituencies. There are three Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) candidates in the poll fray from the state. The alliance has not fielded any candidate on Rae Bareli and Amethi, the two Congress’ bastions.
