Campaigning for BJP candidate Sonali Phogat in Adampur Assembly segment today, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath focused on nationalism and abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, but failed to connect with locals.

During his 12-minute speech, people expected him to address local issues considering the state Assembly polls. There was hardly any response from the crowd as Yogi arrived on the stage and blamed the Congress for imposing Article 370 in J&K in 1952. He said the decision to remove the special provision was helping curb terrorism as the state was eager to join the mainstream of the country.

Baldev, a local resident who attended the rally, said: “We voted for the Modi government on the basis of national issues. But this is state poll and the BJP must address local issues. Yogi’s speech was not impressive. He failed to connect with the masses.”
