Lucknow ,May 17: On the last day of campaigning for the final phase of parliamentary elections, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that the expiry date of the alliance between SP and BSP is drawing closure and on May 23 it would end.
"After May 23, the Samajwadi Party (SP) President Akhilesh Yadav will blame BSP supremo Mayawati for buying votes while BSP supremo will say that Babua is the king of goons. She will also blame SP for its failure to transfer votes which resulted in the loss," Yogi said while addressing a series of rallies in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
Chief Minister addressed rallies in Basdiha, Kaudiram and Sahjanwa in eastern UP which will go to polls in last phase on May 19.
"Those who divide the country in the name of caste and religion have discriminated against the people. They did not allot houses to the poor but destroyed social structure of the country by dividing them on the basis of religion", he said.
Highlighting the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Chief Minister said that previous governments never thought about development of the country but Modi has always worked for the betterment of the poor, farmers, youth and women through numerous welfare schemes.
"Our government provided houses, toilets, free gas connection, electricity, and several other benefits to crores of poor families without any discrimination on caste and creed," he said.
On work done by PM Modi for women, Yogi said, "A lot of work has been carried out to uplift the status and improve the security of women. Modi has also worked for Muslim women by freeing them from 'Triple Talaq, which was only possible during this government."
Attacking the Congress Yogi said that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had said that his government used to send 100 rupees for the poor but the beneficiaries received only 10 rupees and the rest 90 rupees were taken by 'Congress' middlemen'. To curb this PM Modi opened Jan Dhan bank accounts of every poor and now they receive the money without any intervention of third person", he said.
Mr Yogi said: " This is new and corruption-free India while it was corruption-laced at the time of the Congress."
He appealed to the voters to vote for BJP because one vote to BJP will strengthen Modi at the Centre.
Campaigning for the eastern UP ended on Friday evening and 13 constituencies of eastern UP will go to polls on May 19. (UNI)
