LS poll mandate against inflation, unemployment, says AAP leader

Sunday, 09 June 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

The people’s mandate in the Lok Sabha elections 2024 is against inflation, unemployment, Agnipath scheme for short-term enrolment in the Army, the alleged attempt to destroy the Constitution of India and the Bharatiya Janata Party’s politics of hatred.

This was stated by Aam Aadmi Party leader and UP in-charge Sanjay Singh at a press conference held at the party office in Gomti Nagar on Saturday.

He said the BJP should take a lesson from the loss of seats in the recent election and it should bear in mind that the country cannot be run by hatred, ego and by devaluing social norms and ending Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes reservations.

Singh hit out at the BJP, saying the saffron party which claimed to have brought Lord Ram was given an unceremonious farewell from Ayodhya. He also spoke of a portrait in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photo was bigger than that of Lord Ram.

On the formation of the National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre, the AAP leader said the BJP was not loyal to anyone. He tried to drive a wedge between the NDA partners by saying that they should not give BJP total control of the government.

"The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) is demanding the Lok Sabha speaker’s post. If they get it would do good. Or in past we saw the BJP’s speaker expel 150 MPs during the previous regime. They will tweak the Constitution, break the small parties which are its allies and will gag their voice,” he said.

Singh said the INDIA bloc had decided to watch carefully the political activities and development and take appropriate action as per the need of time. “If the BJP does not support the TDP speaker then the INDIA bloc should decide its strategy,” he said.

The AAP leader said N Chandrababu Naidu had demanded special status for Andhra Pradesh while Nitish Kumar of Janata Dal (United) had demanded special package and special status for Bihar as a condition for remaining with the BJP.

“The NDA government may last for one year, 13 months or 13 days. Modi is not as popular and acceptable as Atal Bihari Vajpayee was. So there is little hope of this NDA government lasting for its full term,” he said.

Singh thanked the AAP leaders and workers for their tireless efforts in garnering support for INDIA bloc candidates in UP even though the party was not contesting election in UP. He said a meeting of party workers and leaders would be held in Noida and also in Lucknow in the coming days.
