Luknow : Prime Minister Narendra Modi attack on BSP, SP and Congress for their misdeed.Addressing the biggest rally of BJP, Prime Minister Modi, said without taking name of Congress “it has still not succeeded in installing the son as its top boss”. On Mayawati’s BSP He said”a party flapping to deposit its ill-gotten wealth in bank accounts”and the ruling Samajwadi Party, an outfit where the main family is entangled in a family feud”. All opposition parties, he said, “are obsessed with remove Modi.
Dalit icon Mayawati who has served four times as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, has denied that about 100 crores deposited in two accounts linked to her party (one belongs to her brother) after the notes ban was announced constitutes black or untaxed money. The Congress, depleted by losses in a long list of elections and unable to strike an alliance so far in India’s most-populous state, appears to have virtually abandoned its campaign in Uttar Pradesh. And the Samajwadi Party has been ripped apart by the epic father-son battle of Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Yadav, with the latter, who is the Chief Minister, wresting control of the political outfit by having himself named as party president, a move his father has rejected as “unconstitutional.”
There is only one option for Uttar Pradesh,” the PM said, “and it is the BJP.” He equated his party’s 14-year absence from governing the state with a dearth of development that would be quickly reversed “if you just give us the chance.”
The demonetisation drive, which created a large and still unresolved shortage of cash, will be a big influencer in the Uttar Pradesh election, which is why the PM sought to reinforce the slew of measures that he first revealed in a special New Year’s Eve televised speech. Farmers, small traders and medium-sized entrepreneurs, all these will get financial assistance” he said, amid reports that his party’s MPs from Uttar Pradesh have shared concerns about the cash crunch.
