Asaduddin Owaisi Slams Yogi Over ‘Chandragupta Maurya Defeated Alexander’

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday reminded UP CM Yogi Adityanath, that Greek conqueror Alexander never met Mauryan emperor Chandragupta in a war. Stating that Hindutva was a ‘fake history factory’, he stressed the need for a good public education system. Taunting Adityanath, he said that the CM did not value education and it showed. AIMIM, which was eyeing an alliance with SBSP, will now contest on 100 seats.

Stirring a controversy, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Sunday claimed that Chandragupta Maurya’s legacy had been distorted as he was not credited for defeating Greek conqueror Alexander. Addressing a ‘Samajik Pratinidhi Sammelan’ in Lucknow, Adityanath claimed that while Alexander was hailed as ‘great’, Maurya was not termed ‘great’. He added that if the truth was revealed, society would stand up and rebel.

With BJP fighting under the leadership of incumbent CM Yogi Adityanath, several fronts have cropped up to challenge the ruling BJP. SP chief Akhilesh Singh Yadav has stated that SP will only ally with smaller political parties for the 2022 Assembly polls, holding talks with Mahan Dal, NCP, SBSP. Mayawati has already announced that her party will fight polls alone in UP and Uttarakhand while allying only with Akali Dal in Punjab. Congress has aggressively campaigned under the leadership of Priyanka Gandhi in the state, eyeing its solo return. The 403-seat UP assembly where Yogi rules with an iron-clad majority of 314 seats, is up for grabs in February 2022.
