BJP accuses Akhilesh of having patronised criminals
lucknow, April 23 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh's ruling BJP on Monday attacked former UP Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav over his "loose comments" in recent interviews, warning him that criminals, patronized by him, will no longer have a free run under the Yogi Adityanath government.
Bharatiya Janata Party state spokesman, Manish Shukla said that the Samajwadi Party (SP) chief was now making statements like "I belong to the area of Chambal ravines" but he should remember that a rule of law prevails in the state now and anyone who takes law in their own hands will be brought to justice.
He also said that Akhilesh Yadav, who claims to be the custodian of the poor and marginalized, should rather answer why despite many years of SP rule, that of their alliance partner Congress and the new-found ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BJP), Uttar Pradesh remains backward and the people are still looking for prosperity and development.
"Chief Minister Adityanath, the ministers and legislators are touring various parts of the state while you are just dishing out statements from air-conditioned offices," said Shukla, charging the SP chief with patronizing criminals during his regime and of neglecting the state.
