Responding to tweets posted by Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on the inauguration of a ropeway by Union Home Minister Amit Shah at Vindhyachal Dham in Mirzapur on Sunday, UP minister and government spokesman Sidharth Nath Singh flayed the SP chief for making irresponsible statements.
In his tweet, Akhilesh had attributed the credit for conceptualising and planning the ropeway in Vindhyachal Dham to the previous government headed by him.
“Akhilesh Yadav has no future left in 2022 UP Assembly elections and is perturbed over his party’s predictable defeat. Samajwadi Party’s defeat in the 2022 elections is a foregone conclusion. In fact, this time Akhilesh and his party will be wiped out of Uttar Pradesh. People are waiting for the elections to kick them out. Akhilesh knows this too well and for this reason, he is making baseless and nonsensical statements on every issue,” Singh said in Lucknow on Monday.
Hitting out at the SP chief, the government spokesman further said that the Samajwadi Party was just making false claims and taking the credit for whatever work the Bharatiya Janata Party had done in the state.
“In regard to the development work of Vindhyachal Dham, the SP chief is making fabricated statements. Akhilesh is a frustrated person, perpetually engaged in misleading the people of the state through fallacious claims. The SP chief is merely reaping the fruits of what he has sown during his chief ministership,” he said.
Posing certain questions to the SP chief, Singh asked, “What credentials did you have when you were in power? Lawlessness, nepotism, corruption and lobbying for terrorists have been the hallmark of the SP regime. How public money was squandered during the SP regime in celebration of the cultural festival at Saifai in Etawah is an open secret. The SP may continue to dream to regain power but the smart and knowledgeable public is not going to fall into its trap.”
