LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav blamed the BJP for derailing the institutions which has led to the dispute within the CBI on Friday.

Akhilesh said, "The BJP government through its demotisation has led to the collapse of banks and now CCBI, which had been misused for political purpose by different governments, now faces the same fate".

Addressing a press conference Mr Yadav alleged that he would not comment on the CBI dispute as the matter was in the court but now even BJP has gone back foot on the matter.

"The BJP even tried to implicate me in cases and even in the past I had to face a probe. But now I am relieved after this dispute was surfaced" "In this BJP tenure around 40,000 farmers have committed suicide and the promise for doubling the income of the farmers remain a dream of the countrymen," he said.

Mr Yadav, who addressed the student's body of the party Chatra Sabha for their win the Allahabad University Students Union, said that youths will be the decisive factor in the coming 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

"But we will have to check the move of the BJP in indulging in irregularities in the preparation of electoral rolls in the state," he appealed to the youths.

The SP leader was also optimistic that the new voters in the Lok Sabha polls would support the Party candidates in a big way as they will give the BJP a befitting reply in the elections.

When asked about the party's fate in the Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh assembly polls, he said that SP is contesting in alliance with Godwana Gantrantra Party and talks were still going on with BSP.

Commenting on the proposed Mahaganthbandan in UP before the LS polls, he said that the announcement would be made at the appropriate time.
