Former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav has hit back at Congress after Priyanka Gandhi Vadra accused him of running a ‘Jaativaad’ (casteist) and ‘gundayi’ (criminal) government in Uttar Pradesh between 2012 and 2017. Akhilesh Yadav said that there is a possibility that Congress may get zero seats in the next year’s assembly polls. Yadav said that Congress is not in competition this time and they are only doing advertisements.
Yadav said that people want to remove the BJP from Uttar Pradesh and they the Samajwadi Party as the only alternative. Yadav alleged that the policies, programmes and decisions of the BJP and the Congress are the same and there is no difference between the two parties.
On Friday, Yadav, while addressing three rallies in ‘Month’, ‘Chirgaon’ and ‘Badagaon’ areas of Jhansi, attacked the ruling BJP government in the state and said that for the youth, this is the elections for their future and the youth have made up their mind to change the government this time. “I want to thank you all and especially the youth who have come here today. If someone is making a world record in changing names, then it is our Baba chief minister. I want to know which tablet has our CM given to the youth of the state in the last four and a half years? The youth has made up their mind this time to change the government,” said Yadav.
“I want to assure you that the Samajwadi Party government will focus on the development of the state, including (building) good roads, better health facilities and education in the state. We will bring the change in technology that is needed at the moment for the betterment of farmers and the youth. People of Jhansi will not come to the ‘jhansa’ (trick) of BJP anymore. This government is now talking about laptop distribution when elections are approaching,” added the SP chief.
