NATIONAL PRESIDENT of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajnath Singh on Thursday attacked the Chief Minister and said Mulayam Singh Yadav’s idea of Uttam Pradesh consisted of looters and desperadoes.

Addressing an election rally in Rajajipuram to boost BJP the chances of mayoral candidate Dinesh Sharma and corporator candidates, the BJP president said the Samajwadi Party rule in the State had helped anti-social elements. “There was no law and order in the State,” he added.

Singh also held the Congress, the BSP and the SP responsible for escalating prices. “All the three parties were standing together on the issue,” he said.

He asked the people to exercise their franchise sensibly as even a single vote of could make big difference.

Taking a dig at the State Government for distributing money to the unemployed, the BJP president said the amount spent on distributing money to the unemployed youth could have been well utilized for creating employment for the beneficiaries.

Terming the civic polls as vital, Singh said the civic poll was going to influence the State Assembly and the Lok Sabha poll.

Senior BJP leader Lalji Tandon and Amit Puri attacked the Union Minister of State for Steel Akhilesh Das over ‘selling’ the Jhandewala Park to one of the local builders. They said it was quite surprising that the people who had attempted to sell the park were now promising to give a beautiful city to the people of Lucknow.

Referring to national issues, he demanded that the accused in the Parliament attack Mohammad Afzal should be hanged.

On peace talks with Pakistan, the BJP national president said the Congress was bending backwards and obeying the diktats of general Pervez Musharraf.
