Political leaders and social media influencers slammed Yogi Adityanath for his 'offensive' tweet against Kerala, Kashmir and West Bengal. Many prominent people, including Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Opposition leader VD Satheesan, MP Shashi Tharoor and former minister Thomas Isaac, have retweeted it.
Yogi had 'warned' UP voters on the first day of the polling that 'a lot of amazing things have happened in these five years. Beware, if you make a mistake, these five years of hard work will be devastated. It will not take long for Uttar Pradesh to become Kashmir, Bengal and Kerala.'
