Hitting out at Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Samajwadi Party national President Akhilesh Yadav said that the language used by the chief minister against opposition leaders was against the spirit of democracy.
"The language of the chief minister is unlike the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. The words he used like "patak kar maroonga" or "thok doonga" shows the mentality of the chief minister. Such statements are against the spirit of democracy," Yadav told reporters in Mirzapur on Friday.
He said that Yogi Adityanath always tried to intimidate his political rivals. "The BJP has cheated people in the last four years. It has failed to implement the manifesto. The budget which the government presented recently in the assembly is against the poor but it is pro-industrialists," he said.
Yadav said that the people were facing the brunt of the mis-governance of the BJP government and the prices of petrol and diesel had gone up.
"Look at the farmers who are staging protests against the government's three farm laws. The farmers do not want new laws but the government is forcibly implementing them," he said and added that people would teach the BJP a lesson in the coming election.
The former chief minister had come to the district to attend the three-day training camp of the party workers. "The Samajwadi Party will form the government after next elections. Last time when we formed the government we had organised a training camp here and with the blessing of Ma Vindhyavasini the SP formed the government," he said and added that this time too the party would form government as the campaign had started from here.
