SP not bothered about people of UP: BJP
New Delhi [India], Jan 23 (ANI): With the dates of the seven phase crucial Uttar Pradesh polls inching closer, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday fired a fresh salvo at the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi party and said at a time when the law and order of the state is collapsing across the state, Yadav is more concerned about the upcoming polls, his party manifesto and alliance with the Congress party.
Addressing a press conference here, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that the people of Uttar Pradesh will not accept a party which is not bothered about them.
"The law and order in the state is brittle, the people of Uttar Pradesh are fed up with the rising crime. And all that perturbs the Samajwadi government is their manifesto, or their alliance with the Congress. People of the state will not accept such a party," said Patra.
Further ridiculing the Uttar Pradesh government, Patra said that the Uttar Pradesh chief minister keeps taking credit for projects which are still incomplete.
"Nowadays Akhilesh Yadav is campaigning for the UP polls and in each rally of his, you will observe that there are few things which he repeats, the first is that we have built the expressway and the second is that they have got the metro, though both projects remain incomplete," said Patra
Samajwadi Party and Congress yesterday firmed up an alliance for next month's high-voltage Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls at a joint press briefing.
They vowed to make Akhilesh Yadav the chief minister of the politically crucial state yet again while promising to free the state from communal and divisive forces.
The formal announcement of SP-Congress alliance has come after discussions by the two sides over few days before they agreed to 298-105 formula.
Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav yesterday released the election manifesto for the assembly polls.
The poll process in Uttar Pradesh begins on February 11. 73 constituencies in western Uttar Pradesh will go polls in this phase. The filing of nominations for these constituencies will end on January 24.
Uttar Pradesh is set to have a seven-phase polling between February 11 and March 8. (ANI)
