3 billion, a division bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and Ajay Tewari said orally. She tells Tanu that they can take the advantage of this. In an interview with the PTI, And in that memory the lake was built.The story is important here because in last few years the physical heft of Bheem became an allegory to the political clout and heft that the Mahant or head priest of the Gorakhnath Mutt Yogi Adityanath yields Now the head Mahant is also the head of the state government in Uttar Pradesh The controversial leader who is known for his unapologetic divisive politics was very ironically chosen ‘unanimously’ as the Chief Minister of the most populous state of the country A file photo of Yogi Adityanath PTI While reasons for Adityanath’s elevation for the top post of the state will witness some high-decibel-deafening debate what perhaps will be given less attention is how he actually forged this paradigm of power that pushed him at top of political hierarchy in such an unexpected manner Talking to people of Gorakhpur who saw his rise in last two decades it becomes clear that combination of historical reasons unapologetic communalisation of social discourse and manipulation of unwarranted fear among masses made Yogi Adityanath a leader who could bend Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to get the top post Consider this: In a city with a more than 78 percent of Hindu population people even youth and even the educated youth to a greater extent feel that they and their families are safe because of "Yogiji" A garment businessman from Gorakhpur who joined his family business after completing his graduate degree from Delhi University says “Those have left the city will never understand that without him (Yogi Aditiyanath) this will not be a safe place to live” This rhetoric of Adityanath being the saviour of “Hindus against the onslaught of Muslims” has been intelligently built over the years And it plays important role in creating support base for the new chief minister of Uttar Pradesh While communal polarisation has been the most important reason for the support of Yogi’s brand of politics other factors too play important role in it which is acknowledged by people of the city at large though not openly The Hindu Yuva Vahini youth group founded under the patronage of Yogi Adityanath has also an important role to play Its volunteers were known to use strong-arm tactics in riots cow-protection drives and to stop ‘love jihad’ It is the same organisation that fielded candidates against the saffron party in six Assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh “See basically Purvanchal has lot of unemployed youth They are easily swayed by the leaders like Adityanath whom they see as ‘Yug Purush; and ‘Hindu Hriday Samrat’ These are essentially young people who do not have job or proper employment This badge of Hindu Yuva Vahini karyakartagives them a sense of pride And they are ready to do anything for their leader” says a lawyer from Gorakhpur He adds “Gorakhpur was once known for places like Geeta Press But in the 70s it witnessed emergence of bahubali netas and mafias A new language of what we colloquially called bhaukal—which can be loosely translated into an ability to impress though larger than life image—emerged And here is the leader who talks about destroying Pakistan So youth is bound to be impressed by his politics” “If you look at the statistics in most of the places where his choice of candidates; like in Gorakhpur Gramin constituencies in Siddharthnagar district Sant Kabir Nagar just to name few BJP has won with very small margins If it would not have been for Modi wave he would have lost all the seats” said a BJP supporter in Gorakhpur who does not support Adityanath’s appointment as Chief Minister While talking to people who do not wear a saffron badge of Gorakhpur it becomes evident that lot of noise empty rhetoric unabashed jingoism and crude communal politics was what played an all-important role in the rise of Yogi Adityanath And what obviously added to it was religious and cultural importance that people of Gorakhpur attached to Gorakhnath temple of which Adityanath is a ‘proud’ Mahant While supporters of Adityanath are “celebrating Holi for the second time in the month” there are host of silent observers in the city who are hoping a miraculous transformation of their firebrand MP ; who has several criminal cases against him ( some of the charges include rioting attempt to murder carrying deadly weapons endangering life or personal safety of others unlawful assembly trespassing on burial places and criminal intimidation) into a leader who maintains the dignity of the post that his party has bestowed upon him By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: May 16 2017 8:22 pm Will Deepika Padukone be able to make a statement with her dress at Cannes Related News Every dress has a

the World Trafficking Day (on July 30) actor John Abraham extended his support to UNODC’s global ‘Blue Heart’ campaign against this social threat and shared his views on some of the most pertinent issues facing the region While speaking on the same to Samarth Pathak communications officer UNODC Regional Office for South Asia the actor said “Any kind of human trafficking is a serious threat to humanity It is a violation of human rights and dignity I hear about women and men being trafficked from their homes for sexual exploitation or to work as domestic helps in other cities and countries and even young girls and children are not spared It is so dehumanising The root cause is the vulnerability of people: due to poverty conflicts inequality and illiteracy If these vulnerabilities can be identified and addressed trafficking may be curtailed” Adding “I extend solidarity with victims of trafficking everywhere and endorse UNODC’s ‘Blue Heart Campaign’ which has been at the forefront of international efforts against trafficking I feel it is important to speak out more against it and create awareness because often we turn a blind eye to these issues The public at large must be educated on human rights All of us need to inculcate a sense of humanity and basic human decency to ensure no fellow being is exploited this way My only appeal is for people to have a heart and end this inhumane practice by protecting respecting and fulfilling the human rights of all people everywhere This is our shared responsibility” Further speaking about his association with UNODC’s ‘Blue Heart’ campaign the ‘Dishoom’ star said “On World Trafficking Day I support UNODC’s call to ‘act to protect and assist trafficked persons’ The mass migration and movement of refugees fleeing conflict and natural disasters across the world is a compelling and challenging human rights issue It is truly sad to know that most people are never identified as trafficking victims and therefore cannot access most of the assistance or protection provided I feel there is a need for the public civil society and governments to act now to enhance protection and assistance to affected people” On the work
