Terming the BJP ‘biggest liar’, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav alleged that the party resorted to Divisive tactics to win the UP assembly polls as it was not in a position to compete with his (Akhilesh’s) regime on the issue of development.

The former UP chief minister also accused the BJP of misleading people on issues such as the loan waiver for farmers and corruption.

Yadav, while addressing people at the foundation stone laying ceremony of ‘Yadav Dharmshala’ in Vrindaban on Sunday, said there was no other party that “lies as much as the BJP does”.

“The BJP has the expertise in dividing voters on communal and caste lines and it did so in UP assembly elections because they knew that they would not be able to defeat Samajwadi Party on the issue of development,” he stated.

“There is a need to remain alert from the BJP as they make false promises as they had assured loan waiver to farmers in UP but only few got benefit that too of paltry amount and in some cases in paisa,” he stated.

In Vrindavan, a farmer had got the loan waiver of one paisa only.

“BJP remains busy provoking issues like that of national anthem and has no time for the Ganga and its revival. We took steps for the Gomti in Lucknow and similar efforts are needed for reviving the Yamuna here. Instead of praising the RSS, the chief minister should work for masses in state in true sense and instead of raising issues like Kabristan (graveyard) and Shamshan (crematorium), the BJP should try to improve the standards we had set,” Yadav said.

He held the UP government responsible for the death of children at a Gorakhpur hospital. On law and order, he raised the incident of suicide by a girl in Mathura after murderer of her parents was not arrested by Mathura police.

“Triple murder took place in Sitapur while a BSP leader was murdered in Allahabad and none of cases are being worked out,” alleged the SP leader. While laying the foundation of Yadav Dharamshala, Akhilesh supported the cause of Yadav community which, according to him, had not lagged behind in serving the nation. Moreover, Yadav who stood firm on his ‘friendship’ with the Congress and said it would continue. On the demonetisation and GST, he said the masses were under belief that they would get money in their account but what they got was unemployment and losses in trade.
