Dubbing the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh as the party of "a family", BJP MP Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday claimed that its policies were "divisive and discriminatory".
Adityanath, the BJP's lead campaigner in UP bypolls, asked the people to vote for his party in the coming bypolls as he claimed that BJP was a must for the development of UP.
The controversial BJP leader was addressing an election rally here in Nighasan through a mobile phone.
He termed the SP's policies as "divisive and discriminatory".
Adityanath was scheduled to participate in the rally with BJP's state unit chief Laxmikant Bajpai but due to some unspecified reasons, their visit was cancelled and the MP's address was relayed live through a mobile handset.
In his brief address, Adityanath held the ruling SP responsible for what he called "poor" law and order, bad roads, electricity outages and plight of farmers in UP.
Attacking the state government, the BJP leader claimed that a recent report by national crime bureau indicated the poor law and order situation in UP.
He also criticised the Kanya Vidyadhan Yojna of the SP government and called it discriminatory.
