| | Lucknow | in Lucknow

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav campaigning in poll bound Gujarat has said Uttar Pradesh has five thousand year old ties with the western state and he has come from the land of `Brij’ to Dwarakadheesh for laying the foundation of the party in the coastal state. SP president is campaigning in Gujarat from Tuesday.

The party has fielded five candidates in the Gujarat state assembly election scheduled on December 9 and 14. Claiming that the `Gujarat model of development’ was a hoax  Akhilesh Yadav said ``the BJP is marketing the Gujarat model for the last many years across the country the fact remains that UP far exceeds Gujarat in the number of development works completed in UP  during the Samawadi party rule’’.  He said the people of Gujarat were plain, simple and innocent people and this land produced the son of soil like Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.

He said the Samajwadi party follows the ideals of Gandhi and Patel and the people here3 would support the Samajwadi party candidates. Samajwadi Party (SP) spokesperson and national secretary Rajendra Chaudhary on Wednesday ``to expose the BJP’s lies, Akhilesh Yadav  is campaigning in Gujarat and he has been telling  the Gujarat voters that  the  Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh wrote the development story, but the new BJP regime is taking credit for all those works. The BJP does nothing better than misleading people.” Akhilesh has so far addressed rallies in Jamjodhpur in Jamnagar and Lalpur in Upleta (Rajkot) and Mandvi (Kutch). Chaudhary said the BJP had been projecting a mythical Gujarat model to the country and now they were going to try and impress the Gujarat voters with the UP civic polls results that were achieved through rigged EVMs. Akhilesh Yadav will caution the Gujarat voters against the BJP, its lies and divisive politics, Chaudhary said.
