Akhilesh ridiculed 'karmbhoomi' of Lord Krishna, says PM Modi
Bahraich: Turning the table on UP CM Akhilesh Yadav for his unsavoury 'donkeys of Gujarat' remark, PM Modi said Akhilesh had made fun of the land of Dayanand Saraswati, Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.
"...yes I like donkeys because they are laborious creatures and I also work for the welfare of people like a donkey. At least this creature does not discriminate. It was unbecoming of the UP CM to make such cheap remarks and humiliate the land of such greats including lord Krishna," said PM Modi while addressing a massive election rally here.
"It was not expected from the Chief Minster of a state. There was nothing wrong but Akhilesh ridiculed it and took the whole thing to the lowest level," he added.
Sharpening his attack at Samajwadi Party president, PM Modi said former should know when Congress was in power as part of UPA, it came out with postal stamps on donkeys of Gujarat.
Referring Uttar Pradesh minister booked in gang rape case, PM Modi said those who are chanting Gayatri Prajapati 'mantra' have no right to come to power.
Hitting out at Akhilesh Yadav, he questioned that do UP need such government whose MLA's are accused in heinous crimes. "It is shocking that UP CM is asking public to vote on the name of those leaders who have remained indulged in crimes," said PM Modi.
" I want to ask Samajwadi Party government what they did for the farmers. Why is it that sugarcane farmers in UP face so many troubles? Why are not their dues settled?" questions PM Modi.
