Hitting out at Samajwadi Party in UP, BJP national president Amit Shah on Thursday said, “The Samajwadi Party is full of the likes of Mukhtar Ansari and Atiq Ahmad and if you start removing them from SP, the party will become empty. The three and a half CMs in UP are simply enacting a drama on the merger of Quami Ekta Dal (QED) of the criminal Mukhtar Ansari.”
Addressing thousands of booth-level workers from 14 districts of western Uttar Pradesh, Shah touched upon the Mathura violence and Kairana “exodus” issues, launching a scathing attack on the ruling front. “Isn’t is funny that chacha (Shivpal Yadav) announces the merger of QED with SP and the bhatija (Akhilesh Yadav) scraps the deal citing the reason that there are too many cases against Ansari. This clearly reflects the multiplicity of CMs in the state. Two uncles (Shivpal and Ramgopal) make one unit, Mulayam Singh Yadav is the second unit, Akhilesh is the third unit while Azam is another half CM. So there are three and a half CMs in the state.”
Making a mention of the Mathura violence and Kairana “exodus”, Shah said, “Akhilesh Yadav says that the real reason for the exodus of families from Kairana was law and order. Let us believe in what he says. Then who is responsible for controlling law and order in the state? It is not being run by Barack Obama. The CM is himself responsible for bad law and order situation in the state. We have not seen such goondaraj anywhere else. A man grabs hundreds of acres of government land in Mathura under the patronage of SP leaders and when police use force to evict them, two policemen are killed.”
Later, addressing a rally at Sector 62 in Noida, Shah lashed out at the Akhilesh Yadav government over law and order in UP, saying there is “goondaraj in the state,”The BJP president said people believed in the leadership of Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha election and it was time to once again give the party a chance in UP.
Shah said the opposition often asks what BJP has achieved in the last two years in power. “The first achievement is that we gave a PM who speaks for the country,” he said adding that the previous prime minister, a reference to Manmohan Singh, always kept silent.”
