Shameful! It is Republic Day time for SP legislator Suresh Yadav
Barabanki: Politicians are supposed to be the most aware of the history, constitution and republic of our country, but there is a Samajwadi Party legislator in Uttar Pradesh who surprisingly does not even know the difference between 'Independence Day' and 'Republic Day'.
SP MLA from Barabanki constituency, Dharmraj Singh aka Suresh Yadav, is being largely ridiculed since his hoardings, wishing Raksha Bandhan, Shri Krishna Janmashtami and Republic Day, have been set up across the district.
The hoardings, containing the names of Suresh Yadav, his brother Dharrmendra Yadav and several other SP leaders including party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and president Akhilesh Yadav, have been installed at the prime crossways of the district.
Slamming the SP MLA, Bharatiya Janata Party district head Awdhesh Srivastava said, "Sursh Yadav has been elected by the people of the district for the second time. He should have paid heed to the matter before the posters were set up across the district."
On the other hand, Indian Farmer's Union leader Mukesh Singh expressed dismay over this saying, “It is very unfortunate for the country that the leaders who are running responsible for taking it forward do not know the difference between the Independence Day and Republic Day. Suresh Yadav should apologise to the people for such a blunder."
None of the senior SP leaders, including MLA Suresh Yadav, are ready to utter a single word over the incident.
It may be mentioned that Independence Day will be celebrated across the country on August 15, while Republic Day falls on January 26.
