Akhilesh has sensed his defeat in polls: Keshav

Sunday, 23 January 2022 | PNS | Lucknow

Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Saturday launched a scathing attack on Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, saying that the Samajwadi Party leader had already sensed his defeat in the first phase of elections.

"This is why Akhilesh Yadav was nervous about contesting elections earlier and now he is also nervous about releasing the list (of candidates)," Maurya remarked.

He said that even after March 10, the exodus of rioters, mafia, goons and the corrupt would continue from the state. Uttar Pradesh always loved development and progress, which only a Bharatiya Janata Party government could provide.

The UP deputy chief minister said that it was for everyone to see how the Bharatiya Janata Party government of Uttar Pradesh ensured progress of farmers, youth, women, poor and underprivileged in the state since 2017. “Those who forced the people of Uttar Pradesh to migrate are themselves on the run today. The exodus of such people will continue in Uttar Pradesh because UP is again demanding the BJP government," he said.

Referring to the achievements of the BJP government, the deputy chief minister said that SP chief Akhilesh Yadav should understand that his party stood no chance and it was time for them to return home.

"Jan jan ki yahi pukar, UP maange phir bhajpa sarkaar,” he said while responding to the questions of journalists in Lucknow.

Taking a jibe at the opposition Samajwadi Party, Maurya said that the BJP's wind was blowing in Uttar Pradesh, mitigating the SP politics of deceit and false promises.

To a query, the deputy chief minister said that the Samajwadi Party was full of goons, criminals, mafia, corrupt and rioters. “This is why Akhilesh Yadav is now panicking on the release of the list of candidates," he pointed out, and added, "He is bound to panic because he kept sleeping for five years and has come to contest the elections in UP."

Maurya said the previous SP government had scams in the pension and PF of government employees. "The public has not forgotten the tenure of such a Samajwadi Party government," he said.

Maurya said there was a time before 2017 when farmers used to commit suicide in UP. "Today, UP is number one in wheat, potato, vegetable, fruits and oilseeds production. After independence, for the first time, in the BJP government, the farmers got the gift of Kisan Samman Nidhi. Farmers doing advanced farming were given respect. Tractors were distributed to them as gifts. The government bought paddy and wheat directly from the farmers and made the payment directly into their accounts,” he said.
