UP polls: SP turned police stations into offices, says PM Modi
Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Mar. 6 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday accused the Samajwadi Party of criminalising Uttar Pradesh, citing they had turned police stations into their party offices.
"The Samajwadi Party offices have been placed inside the Uttar Pradesh Police Stations and that is why, police takes permission from their workers before lodging a case," he said while addressing a rally in Varanasi.
Prime Minister Modi also urged the people not to give another chance to the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Congress.
"There is a government in Uttar Pradesh which has nothing to do with development. This government is anti-farmer. Why is it that farmers don't benefit from the Fasal Bima Yojana? Why they don't help farmers in distress. Don't give another chance to the Congress, the Samajwadi Party and the BSP to destroy UP," he said.
"Once the BJP comes to power, I will personally ensure to throw out all the corrupt elements in the state from the bureaucracy to the politicians and bring prosperity to all," he added.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi visited the Gadhwa Ghat Ashram and also paid floral tribute to former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
