UP Minister compares Opposition to useless ‘blown-out’ transformers


Member parties of opposition block INDIA are like “blown-out” transformers which cannot power even a light bulb, let alone run the country, Uttar Pradesh Sugarcane Development Minister Laxmi Narayan Chaudhary has said.
On the other hand, Narendra Modi is a powerhouse who spreads light everywhere, Chaudhary said.
“For example, there are 10 transformers of 250 units each, but they are ‘fused’ transformers, so they would not be able to light even a bulb. On the other hand, Modi ji is such a transformer, who spreads light everywhere. The opposition block will cease to exist after the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections,” he said.
He also said the alliance has “scamsters” as its members, all of whom with a history of dissensions among them.
Chaudhary, a five-time MLA from Chhata assembly seat in Mathura, has in the past been a member of BSP and Congress. He later joined BJP and is currently a lawmaker from the same seat. Being a leader with considerable influence in the western UP, Chaudhary said the region, with Jats as the dominant caste, stands firmly with the BJP. “The Jats are a nationalist community, and the party which speaks about nationalism, the Jats stay with them. Even during the Mughal era, Jats had fought for and defended the ‘Sanatan Dharm’ and the country. “If anyone has the highest contribution in defending and saving Indian culture, then it is those people, who live in the 200-kilometre radius of Delhi. The voters of western UP are fully with the BJP,” he said. Once a minister in the BSP government, Chaudhary dismissed his old party as inconsequential in view of the coming general election, saying its vote bank, which largely is made up of labourers, knows its interests lie with BJP.
