Akhilesh and Rahul have come together to plunder UP: Amit Shah
Hapur (Uttar Pradesh): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah on Friday slammed the pre-poll alliance between Samajwadi Party and Congress, saying that 'two Princes' (Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi) have come together with a common aim of looting Uttar Pradesh.
While addressing a rally in Pikhuwa region here, the BJP chief said that the law and order situation in UP is the worst and the government here functions only on one philosophy "paisa lo aur order karo (take bribe to pass orders)".
"Two Princes (Akhilesh and Rahul) have come together for the UP elections. One of them (Rahul) has looted the country, while the other (Akhilesh) has ransacked the state. Now both have joined hands to plunder UP together," said Amit Shah.
Taking a jibe at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi over the ceasefire violations by Pakistan, Shah said, "The Congress scion can himself observe what difference has come in border violence during the past two and a half years. Well, he might not be able to see that as he wears Italian goggles on his eyes."
Lauding the BJP's elections manifesto, the party chief said that if his party comes to power in the state, it will waive off the all the loans of the farmers.
He also promised to return the lands of the poor people of the state in 15 days after coming to power.
