Samajwadi Party state president Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday accused CM Mayawati of doing nothing for women despite being a woman and of diverting development funds to putting up her statues.

"The state has spent Rs 400 crore on installing statues. The time has come to remove this corrupt government from power," Yadav said at a rally in Saidpur tehsil of Ghazipur.

Commenting on local problems, Yadav said, "The CM also diverted funds meant for the Sakaldihya-Chandauli setu on river Ganga towards installing statues."

Yadav had something for every section of society.

He assured youth of an unemployment allowance. Addressing farmers, he said, "If the SP forms the next government then it will ensure regular power and water supply to farmers."

Yadav also promised a sport complex and a stadium in the region.

Later, at another rally at Keshra Pokhra, Yadav alleged that farmers had got a raw deal under the BSP regime. He also accused the BSP government of stopping all development projects, which had been started by the SP government.

Yadav inducted more than 100 BJP workers in the SP.
