Unnao (Uttar Pradesh): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday targeted BSP chief Mayawati and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and said only the Samajwadi Party (SP) can bring more development and prosperity in the state.
Addressing a well attended gathering here, Yadav said Modi was busy with 'Mann ki Baat' (Modi's monthly radio address to the nation) and had no time for doing "kaam ki baat (anything worthwhile). He also accused Modi of forcing people to stand outside banks and ATMs in the aftermath of the 8 November demonetisation move.
"All your money is deposited in the banks now, so what are you left with?" he asked the crowd.
He also took a dig at the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati for her statement in which she said she will prefer sitting in the opposition rather than allying with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) post polls.
"Not even two phases of the polling has taken place and Mayawati is already talking of sitting in the opposition," he said.
Yadav, who is also the national president of the Samajwadi Party (SP), will be addressing seven rallies on Wednesday.
The PM said the achievements of the para athletes will help develop a sporting culture in the country.
The development came after the Allahabad High Court on Monday dismissed a plea against proceedings initiated by the Uttar Pradesh government to take over the university land for non-adherence to certain conditions on which it was granted to a trust in 2005
