Love jihad backfired

‘Yogi’ Aditynath’s concocted love-jihad backfired in UP, Rajasthan and Gujarat in the recently held assembly by-polls. You can’t keep spewing venom and fabricating facts at your will. This eventually boomerangs and you’re hoist with your own petard. This oxymoronic love-Jihad was a political and electoral metaphor for the BJP to use it against the minority. But fortunately, people could see through this nefarious design and made Adityanath eat the humble pie. It’s time, the politicians focussed on issues that are of greater interests and have a direct bearing on people and politics. They can’t take the masses for a ride all the time by such juvenile concoctions.
