Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday slammed the Opposition for accusing Samajwadi Party of failing to fulfil the promises made to people and said laptops being distributed by the state government will help students progress.

Opposition parties which earlier made mockery of the promises made by SP were nowhere to be seen now, he said while addressing a gathering at Saifai during a laptop distribution ceremony.

Akhilesh warned the students of a legal action if any one of them was found selling the laptops (distributed by the state government).

He distributed laptops to 7,217 students and said it will assist them in collecting information through internet.

The state government was working for the welfare of farmers and poor, Akhilesh said.

On the occasion, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav expressed grief over massive loss of life and property in Uttarakhand.

The UP government has given a financial help of Rs 25 crore to the neighbouring state, he said.
