Akhilesh Lists Peace, Progress among SP Govt's Major Gains
Even as the Samajwadi Party Government in the state completed two years in office on Saturday, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav claimed that he had led the state on the path of peace and prosperity by starting a series of developmental works in various fields.
Addressing a news conference here on the occasion, the Chief Minister said he was convinced that the people of the state would reject the communal forces again and vote for development in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
And Akhilesh, in an apparent reference to Modi, said some people were marketing themselves saying they had never even committed a minor offence like a traffic rule violation, but the same lot was pursuing a communal and divisive agenda to win the polls.
Reeling off the achievements and developmental works in the state’s IT, Housing, PWD, Health and some other sectors, the Chief Minister said no other government had done so much for UP’s progress. And he pointed out that the previous BSP Government headed by Mayawati had squandered majority of the funds to build the parks and statues, while the SP Government utilised the money for the public’s welfare.
On the SP prospects in the Parliament elections, Akhilesh said he was confident of the party putting up a good show. As for the pre-poll surveys showing a decline in the party’s tally, he said there was a big question mark over their reliability.
