I cannot meet people at the expense of my duties, says UP CM
Lucknow: Reacting to Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh's complaint, Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said he could not meet people at the expense of his official duties.
“Amar Singh and many others complain that I do not meet them. I would simply say that CM of any state does not have a solution for this issue. I cannot neglect my duties just for meeting people. Should I be doing it, the state could never get the facilities like the Lucknow Metro and Agra-Lucknow Expressway,” said the Chief Minister while answering a newsman’s question in this regard in the state capital.
What Amar Singh had said:
- It is difficult to talk to Akhilesh Yadav even on phone.
- CM’s secretary says that he will convey my message to him whenever I try to meet him.
- I am facing humiliation in the party and now I think that it was wrong on my part to grab the Rajya Sabha seat.
- Not only me, but also Balram Yadav and Shivpal Yadav are being insulted in the party.
