Uttar Pradesh: What Led Akhilesh Yadav To Offer Prayers At Sankat Mochan Temple And Have Tea At Pappu's Shop?

Lucknow. Akhilesh Yadav's style has changed these days. After giving promotion to Swami Prasad Maurya, who gave very controversial statement on Ramcharitmanas, he also reached Sankat Mochan Temple in Varanasi. It is said that this is the same temple where Goswami Tulsidas lived.

Reached Pappu's small tea shop during his visit to Varanasi

SP chief Akhilesh Yadav surprised everyone on Thursday night i.e. February 9, when he reached Pappu's small tea shop during his visit to Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. 

This is the same famous shop in Banaras, which has also appeared in Kashinath Singh's book, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi had tea during the 2022 assembly election campaign.

Akhilesh took a glass of lemon spiced tea and then sipped it, cheering towards the picture of Prime Minister Modi displayed in the shop. Akhilesh Yadav also visited the Sankat Mochan Hanuman temple on the Varanasi tour and offered obeisance there. 

It is believed that Goswami Tulsidas wrote Ramcharitmanas while staying in Sankat Mochan Hanuman temple. The same Ramcharitmanas, about whom the SP is giving very confused statements at this time. 

The most controversial statements in the ongoing controversy have been given by the leaders of Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party.

Akhilesh is in a dilemma

On Swami Prasad Maurya, who gave a controversial statement on Ramcharitmanas, Akhilesh Yadav said that this controversy is 5000 years old. The debate on Ramcharitmanas has been going on for a long time and it will continue. Samajwadi Party will fight on caste census. 

Looking for a new vote bank

This is actually the problem with Akhilesh. He is looking for a new vote bank, because the alliance of Muslims and Yadavs could not win him seats even in three digits. He is working on the old strategy of dividing Hindus to get the votes of OBCs.

However,  the former chief minister of the state also knows that he is nowhere in the ongoing battle for Hindutva and the people are still with the BJP. This is also evident from the incident that when  Akhilesh came out after having tea, Pappu, the tea seller, was asked by the media people about this. 

Pappu simply said laughingly, Modi hai to mumkin hai. Although Pappu's answer was very simple, but it is considered to be a glimpse of the mood of Banaras for the upcoming elections.

Akhilesh is thinking which path to choose

SP supremo Akhilesh Yadav is going to the tea shop on foot, mingling with the people, going to the temple, that means he has started poll preparations. Along with this, he is not missing any opportunity to attack BJP. 

Akhilesh described the investor summit as throwing dust in the eyes of the public. Akhilesh said, “If you go there wearing a tie and suit, then BJP people will get you to sign the MOU as well. In the pretext of investor meet, the public is being deceived. How many MOUs that were signed in the last investor meet landed on the ground."

Also targeted Yogi

Akhilesh also targeted Yogi. Akhilesh said, “The Ekana stadium in Lucknow where Yogi went to watch the cricket match was built by socialists. Yogi doesn't even know what a no ball is? How many stumps are planted? What is the distance between them? What is the pitch's length? Doesn't know anything, just went to watch the match."

Akhilesh Yadav also raised questions regarding the cleanliness of Ganga. He questioned the track record of BJP. he said ask Namami Ganga, has the Ganga been cleaned? The NGT, the High Court and the Supreme Court have questioned, after which the Opposition raised the question.

Akhilesh will find a way between Hindutva and secularism

Akhilesh's father late Mulayam's path was very clear. During the assembly elections, Akhilesh Yadav reached Maa Vindhyavasni temple located in Vindhyachal for darshan and worship. 

There he duly worshiped Maa Vindhyavasni, but he did not visit the nearby shrine of Hazrat Khwaja Ismail Chishti, while there was complete preparation for the arrival of Akhilesh Yadav at the shrine. 

The people of the Muslim community kept waiting for the SP supremo with flowers, bouquets and chadars to offer at the dargah. The dargah was also decorated for this.

Akhilesh is trying to strike a balance, but that is what is difficult. Now in this balance Akhilesh has advantage or disadvantage, only time will tell.
