BJP’s only election agenda will be development: K P Maurya
Kanpur: The newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh (UP) Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) president Keshav Prasad Maurya, who was recently in a controversy for being weighed with Indian currency coins, on Wednesday claimed that his party would form a majority government after the 2017 assembly polls, winning at least 265 seats.
“Keeping in mind the pre-poll scenario of the state, I am quite confident that the BJP will form a majority government after the 2017 assembly elections, winning more than 265 seats,” said the UP BJP president at a press conference in Kanpur city of UP and added, “Our only election agenda will be ‘development’, leaving the Ram Mandir issue to gather votes for other parties.”
- Maurya alleged that the Akhilesh led government had always failed to help the draught-affected Bundelkhand area.
- Attacking the ruling Samajwadi Party, Maurya said, “how are they capable of protecting the commoners when the police have been assaulted as many as 11,000 times in their four-year rule.”
