Centre closely watching situation in Afghanistan: Deputy CM | Kanpur News


Kanpur: Deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Friday said that the Central government was keeping an eye on the present situation in Afghanistan. “The government will bring back the stranded countryman safely. Our country is capable of facing any situation”, he said.
The deputy CM was talking to the media in Hamirpur where he had gone to inaugurate and lay the foundation stone of projects and schemes worth Rs 684 crore.
When asked to comment on the statements given by some leaders in support of Taliban, Maurya said, “Such leaders are anti-India. Those who like Taliban rule should immediately leave India and go to Afghanistan,” he further said.
Earlier, while addressing a gathering at Police Parade ground at the district headquarters, he said that with the BJP’s basic mantra of ‘sabka saath and sabka vikas’, this time people would not even let the accounts of opposition parties open in the forthcoming assembly elections.
“Kalyug was prevailing during the regimes of Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati. Due to collusion between contractors and political leaders the state’s development work was only on papers, but in the double engine government, work is being done on the ground on the mantra of `sabka saath and sabka vikas’ (Collective effort and inclusive growth)”, the deputy CM said.
