Referring to the Samajwadi Party rule of 2012-17, he said the development work of the Akhilesh Yadav government was praised by one and all.

The present Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, he said, was only telling lies and inaugurating the projects initiated by the earlier government.

"In the last one year of BJP rule, the state has only been defamed by their acts," he said.

Nanda also demanded strict action against police officials who have been dishing out tall claims about improved law and order in the state.

Nanda also accused governor Ram Naik of not discharging his constitutional duties.
