In an attempt to consolidate the Muslim vote bank, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav promised he would ensure representation of minorities in government jobs in proportion to their population in the state.
The CM was addressing an election rally at Barhalganj in favour of SP supported candidate Harishanker Tiwari, in Gorakhpur on Sunday.
Mulayam blamed the Congress for launching a campaign to oust him. He said barring the CPM, the Congress, the BJP and the BSP among other parties had embarked upon an anti-Mulayam campaign. He said he would not succumb to this kind of pressure and, instead, emerge victorious after the election.
He urged the people to vote in favour of SP candidate and promised that ultra-modern medical facilities would be provided at every district hospital. In this way, the people would not have to rush to Lucknow or New Delhi for treatment.
Mulayam attended half-a-dozen public meetings at Barhaj, Salempur, Padrauna and Barhalganj among other places in the division.
Mulayam said the SP was contesting the election with focus on development issues. He promised free education from Class I to postgraduate level and jobs for youths. He further said kanya vidya dhan would be increased and free power supply would be ensured to farmers.
Wooing the minority community, he said 60 madarsas had been granted aid and the government had passed the resolution for setting up Mohd Ali Jauhar University. He said the government was determined to recruit Urdu teachers.
He flayed the BJP and the BSP saying while one was fanning communal tension to polarise the vote bank, the other one was selling tickets in name of social engineering.
