No Better Place Than Kashi At The Last Moment, Says Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav, who is busy in heavy campaigning for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections these days, in an apparent jibe at his political rival Narendra Modi on Monday said, “people stay in Kashi when the end is near.”

It should be noted that BJP leader Narendra Modi is in his constituency Varanasi on a two-day tour. Earlier today, he inaugurated the phase of the famous ‘Kashi Dham Project.’

Yadav, who was addressing media during an election campaign today, was asked what does he think about the BJP government’s one-month cultural event in Varanasi.

In response, Yadav said, “It is good. Why only a month? He should stay for two months, three months. That is a good place to stay. When the end is near, people stay in Banaras.”

Yadav also took a swipe at the BJP, saying they should “avoid telling lies before the god.”

“They are good at telling lies in front of you and me. But one should avoid telling lies in front of the god,” he said.

The elections to the UP Assembly are due within three months and the SP claims that it will oust the BJP from power. Yadav also hit out at the BJP for taking the credit for developmental works, which he claimed were done by his government.

On Sunday, Akhilesh had claimed that it was during his tenure that the Kashi Vishwanath corridor project was approved, for which he has “documentary evidence”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated the Kashi Vishwanath corridor in Varanasi that connects Kashi Vishwanath with the Ganga Ghats.
