The “high voltage drama” in the ruling Yadav family in Uttar Pradesh is aimed at keeping the media and public attention away from the “failures” of chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, the BJP said on Wednesday.

The family feud in the Yadav family is a “fixed match”, BJP’s national secretary Shrikant Sharma during a press conference.

“Akhilesh Yadav has failed on all fronts. The high voltage drama we are all seeing is a scripted event done to ensure that the media and public do not pay attention to his failures,” he said.

The BJP latched onto a high court order that criticised the state government for not taking adequate preventive health measures to lash out at the Samajwadi Party and BSP. Sharma alleged that while the state’s health has gone done, the wealth of Yadav clan and Mayawati and her kin have gone up.

The party’s national secretary also said that BJP, if elected to power, will probe “scams” that occurred under the SP and previous BSP governments, and punish the guilty as that they were not held to account so far, he claimed, as both the regional parties ignored corruption cases involving each other’s governments.

“The health of UP continues to decline. But the condition of families ruling SP, BSP and Congress is good. Their wealth is increasing,” he said.

Giving details, he said there are only 2,905 primary health centres in the state -- a shortage of 1,288; only 484 specialist doctors are available against the requirement of 3092; and workers are not present in 14291 out of 20521 sub centres health, he added.

While across the country the average load on a hospital is of 61,000 people, in UP it is 2.5 lakh, he said, lashing out at Yadav and previous Mayawati governments for their “failures” on the health front.

The high court, which slammed the government for its lack of facilities to deal with malaria and chikungunya, said the constitutional system has completely failed and wondered why the President’s Rule should not be imposed in the state, Sharma noted.

If the chief minister had any morality left, he would have resigned, he said.

Only BJP is capable of providing education, health and other facilities to the people of the state, he claimed, adding that they have made up their mind to vote the saffron party to power. “People in their mind have rejected the Akhilesh Yadav government. They will do so formally in the elections.”
