Kanpur: BJP President Amit Shah addresses a party meeting in Uttar Pradesh
Kanpur, Jan 30 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Wednesday vowed to defeat the SP-BSP alliance in the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh.
Addressing party workers here, Shah also made fun of opposition parties' attempts to forge a Grand Alliance, saying if they took power, the country would see a Prime Minister every day of the week.
He pointed out that the Congress-Samajwadi Party alliance in the 2017 Assembly elections ended in a whimper.
As for the BJP, it stormed to power with 325 seats, he gloated.
This time, he said, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and SP had formed an alliance to stop the "victory chariot" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi but this too will fail.
"This alliance is of the corrupt. The people who pushed Uttar Pradesh behind by many years due to their self-centred policies are now making alliances to thwart development."
Whatever happens, the BJP was eyeing a 50 per cent vote share in Uttar Pradesh, he added.
Shah then made fun of opposition parties.
"You can imagine what a government it would be of the opposition alliance.
"On Monday, Behenji will be the PM, on Tuesday Akhilesh Yadav, on Wednesday Mamata Banerjee, on Thursday Sharad Pawar, on Friday Deve Gowda and on Saturday it will be M.K. Stalin.
"And on Sunday the country will be on leave," he added.
The BJP chief reminded the gathering that in the 2014 Lok Sabha battle too he had begun his election campaign from Kanpur and was doing so again, implying that this time also victory would be the BJP's.
He credited the Yogi Adityanath government in the state with weeding out the mafia and criminals and ending corruption.
And unlike during the Congress-led UPA regime, the Modi government gave a befitting reply to Pakistani firing from across the border, he said.
