Samajwadi Party infighting 'a cause for concern', affecting UP: Rajnath Singh

Ranchi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the infighting in Uttar Pradesh's ruling Samajwadi Party was "a cause for concern" as it affected the state. BJP did not feel happy in any quarrel in any family or any party and did not weigh any political benefit, he said.

"Yes, it is definitely a cause for concern if the family is in the ruling dispensation," Singh said, adding quarrels in such times affect the state and that the lapses would be fulfilled after BJP forms the next government. He also described Prime Minister Narendra Modi's feat in the last two-and-a-half years as "unparalleled".

"Narendra Modi is the most popular Prime Minister and his achievements in the last two-and-a-half years are unparalleled," Singh told reporters in reply to a query on a statement of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. To another question on the reported attacks on BJP party offices in West Bengal, Singh said in a healthy democracy, there should not be any violence.

"I am not talking about one government, I am talking about all governments," he added. On demonetisation, the Union Minister said irrespective of any party in power, some decisions were taken in the interest of the state and the nation and that one should not see it through the prism of profit and loss.

"The decision is taken in the interest of the people and in the interest of the nation," he said, adding it should not be made an election issue. The Union Home Minister praised Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das, saying he was doing "extremely well".
