PM Narendra Modi lauds Yogi Adityanath for rubbishing Noida superstition

Noida, Dec 25: The satellite town of Noida is not jinxed, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, rubbishing the "superstition" that Uttar Pradesh Chief Ministers have lost their seat whenever they visited the urban hub close to Delhi and praised Yogi Adityanath for "rising above" it.

Modi after inaugurating the Noida-Kalkaji Metro line along with Chief Minister Adityanath addressed a public rally near Amity University here. 

He said when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat he was told about a few places where no Chief Ministers go "because they were inauspicious".

"I was clear...I would go to all those places in my first year itself. Driven by blind faith and superstition, leaders never went to places for decades. How unfortunate is that," he said.

"If anybody thinks not going to a place will prolong their Chief Minister tenure and visiting a place will curtail it, such a person does not deserve to be a Chief Minister," he said, referring to the Noida jinx.
