UP CM has chalked out hectic schedule, addressing seven rallies a day
Uttar Pradesh chief minister and new Samajwadi Party president, Akhilesh Yadav, is likely to fire all-cylinders for success in third and other phases of current assembly election in the state in view
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh chief minister and new Samajwadi Party president, Akhilesh Yadav, is likely to fire all-cylinders for success in third and other phases of current assembly election in the state in view of tall claims made by the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party.
The young and youthful leader, 43, is scheduled to address as many as seven election rallies on a single day--Thursday- starting from Mainpuri, just after completion of the second phase of polling. He has a hectic schedule from now on till the last day of electioneering.
One of the reasons seems to be the claims made by the two rivals that they will win majority of seats where elections have been held in the first two phases. BSP chief Mayawati has made the tallest claim of bagging 300 seats in all and more than fifty per cent seats which went to polls in the first two phases.
His first stop was Mainpuri which is close to his native place where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was his main target. “He and his party wherever it is ruling have done little for the farmers but in all his meetings he has claimed to have done a lot. Similarly, he has made false statements for other sections of the society", Akhilesh said.
In response to his often repeated charge that the SP-Congress pre-poll alliance is not a pact between the two parties but between two dynastic rulers. he said. " it is not alliance between two clans but two youths. He and his folks are worried because they are old and cannot be as energetic as we are".
The first-time chief minister also refuted some other charges such as failure of law and order in the state,bungling in appointments, promotion of one caste and turning police stations into party offices. “The law and order situation in the state is much better than many other states but it is being singled out. We have been also fair to all the castes and groups and emphasised on inconclusive growth", Yadav claimed.
He, simultaneously, highlighted the new schemes launched by his government and achievements made in different fields. He made special mention of the expressway projects, metro rails and distribution of laptops among students.
After a brief stop-over he flew to other meeting grounds and reiterated his commitment to development of the state and betterment of lives of common men.
