Kanpur, October 19:  Accusing the “troika” of Congress and its allies SP and BSP of playing “divisive” politics in the name of secularism, Narendra Modi on Saturday asked the people of Uttar Pradesh to throw them out of power and “bury” vote bank politics forever.

“Government has only one religion. It is nation first, India first. It has only one religious scripture, that is the Constitution,” Mr. Modi said.

Raking up the issue of Congress attacking him on the issue of secularism, the Gujarat Chief Minister said the ruling party has only “one mantra, one chant and one medicine” for winning elections.

“Congress has only one mantra, only one medicine — that of vote bank for winning elections. They chant the mantra of secularism to divide the people,” he said, adding that BJP is committed to binding people together.

“We will have to bury vote bank politics forever. We have to tread on the path of development-oriented politics,” he said.

Attacking the ruling SP and the main opposition BSP in the State, who provide outside support to the Centre, Mr. Modi described them as a “troika”, which has “eclipsed” the holy confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati.

“Uttar Pradesh wants to break free from this eclipse to restore its pristine glory,” he said.
