Hitting out at the SP-Congress alliance in UP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday alleged that chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has joined hands with the party that tried to kill his father Mulayam Singh Yadav in 1984.
“Can Akhilesh recall that the Congress attacked Mulayam on March 4, 1984? Have you heard of a son who has allied with a party that tried to kill his father?” he asked.
Modi said if voted to power, the BJP would waive off the loans of farmers.
Referring to BJP’s winning streak in elections across the country, the PM said the poor had exposed the lies of the opposition parties on surgical strike and demonetisation. “BJP’s success in elections indicates the poor is supporting us,” Modi said.
The PM was in Gursahaigunj to step up BJP’s campaign in 12 assembly seats of Kannauj, a stronghold of chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, and Farrukhabad.
Polling on these seats will take place on February 19. All seats in the region are currently with the SP.
The military camp ground, where Modi addressed the rally, was strategic as its borders touch three districts, including Kanpur Dehat.
The CM has aggressively campaigned in the region and addressed six rallies in Kannauj and Farrukhabad on Tuesday attacking the PM.
