Akhilesh strikes at the surgical strike boast of the Centre

Lucknow: Opening a fresh front against the ruling BJP at the Centre, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday alleged that the Modi government was misleading the country on the issue of surgical strike in Kashmir.
In order to cover up its inaction during the two and half year, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government at the Centre had flared up surgical strike by Indian Army out of proportion in view of coming UP assembly polls, he said while speaking after dedicating various projects of energy department at a function in the state capital. UP CM announced commissioning of a sub -station and release of a new schedule of power supply in the state on the occasion.
Trying to corner Prime Minister Modi for his slogan of 'Jai Sriram' during his vsisit to Lucknow on Dussehra day, the CM Akhilesh said it showed the mind set of the BJP as the PM chanted this instead of ;Bharat Mata ki Jai'. '' By these tactics, the BJP is trying to people's mind from basic issues,'' he pointed out while reiterating the SP would form the government in UP again as the BJP had even failed to give CM face in the coming elections.

Samajwadi Party government was already committed to round-the-clock power supply in rural areas when it came to power in 2017, he asserted.
