Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday trained his guns at Prime Minister Narendra Modi while alleging that the current BJP-led states have the worst law and order situation.
Yadav further hit out at Prime Minister saying the latter should do ‘kaam ki baat’ (meaningful talk) instead of ‘mann ki baat’.
“I heard his Mann Ki Baat on radio and even on TV but could not get what he wants to say. He should do kaam ki baat and no more mann ki baat,” Akhilesh said at a rally in Banda.
He further questioned the development and work agenda of the BJP saying if the party has done anything then they should give account of their work in public.
Hinting at BJP-BSP alliance, Akhilesh said: “BJP and Bahujan Samaj Party have many times celebrated the festival of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ (alliance) so there is a possibility that our aunty (Mayawati) may join hands with BJP.”
Asserting that the Samajwadi Party’s pre-poll alliance with the Congress is aimed at defeating communal forces, Akhilesh on Friday in an indirect attack on his uncle and bete noire Shivpal Yadav said that some forces within the party made desperate attempts to create a feud between him and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav for vested interests.
“We allied with the Congress to defeat communal forces.We have a big heart. We want to form the government in the state,” he said at a rally in Barabanki.
Akhilesh also took a dig at BSP, saying “uncontrollable elephant” will do more damage to Uttar Pradesh.
With two phases of Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections already being held, the third phase will be conducted on February 19.
A turnout of over 65 per cent was recorded in 67 Assembly constituencies across 11 districts of western Uttar Pradesh, in the second phase of the crucial state poll.
40 seats of the 403-member Uttar Pradesh Assembly will go to polls in the final phase on March 8.
