Lucknow: Denouncing criticism of Yogi Adityanath’s elevation to the post of UP Chief Minister, a Trinamool Congress MP today said in democracy both Yogi and Maulvi have the right to hold political and constitutional office if democratically elected.
“It is wrong to criticize Yogi Adityanath’s elevation to the post of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister. Other political parties can’t criticize his elevation as he has been democratically chosen by the elected BJP MLAs. BJP has got the majority and it is their prerogative to decide who will be the Chief Minister,” senior TMC Vice President and MP Sultan Ahmed told reporter.
When asked to comment on allegations of Yogi Adityanath being a polarizing figure, Ahmed said,” He is a five time MP. He has been elected by BJP MLAs. In democracy be it a Maulvi or a Yogi, everybody has the right to hold political and constitutional office, if he or she is democratically elected. There is nothing wrong in it.”
