Akbar, Aurangzeb and Babar were “invaders” and the youth should follow the path shown by leaders such as Maharana Pratap, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath said.
He said the problems of the country will vanish if this truth is accepted. Adityanath was speaking at an event held on the occasion of the 477th birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap on Tuesday.
“Maharana Pratap, Guru Gobind Singh and Chhatrapati Shivaji are our role models, and we must follow the path shown by them. Youngsters must learn a lesson from the self-respect and strength of character from Maharana Pratap. Akbar, Aurangzeb and Babar were invaders. The sooner we accept the truth, all the problems of our country will vanish,” he said.
Asking the audience to treasure the rich history of the country, the UP CM said, “A community which does not have the capacity to treasure its rich history, can never keep its geography safe.”
Uttar Pradesh governor Ram Naik and minister of state for external affairs General (retd) VK Singh were also present on the occasion.
