NEW DELHI: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday took a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), stating that the three campaigners for it are Governor, government agencies and media.

Yadav's comment comes a day after Rajasthan Governor and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's return to power is important for the nation.

Yadav also said the BJP, in the last five years, has driven unemployment and insulted farmers, while its political strategies are social media, hate and money, with the Opposition being its key agenda.

Last week, the SP leader had alleged that the BJP is the "most casteist party" in the country and should not give out lessons on socialism.
