Akhilesh Yadav attacked BJP
The former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh informed reporters that central investigation agencies including the CBI, ED, and Income Tax were acting at the direction of the BJP Government.
The SP leader asserted that the raids were carried out to harm the opposition parties since they were steadfastly opposing the BJP in power.
When the Congress was in power, he claimed, the ED, CBI, and I-T department conducted raids on a number of the nation’s senior leaders.
Akhilesh Yadav claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party is imitating the Congress by utilizing investigation agencies to conduct “political raids” and will suffer the same fate as the Congress.
In response to a query from a reporter, he discussed how the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had summoned Tejashwi Yadav and questioned Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi.
The SP leader was in Ahmedabad to attend a gathering in the home of Shankersinh Vaghela, a former chief minister of Gujarat.
Akhilesh Yadav, the president of SP, further said that the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chooses its candidates at the BJP headquarters to thwart the election of SP nominees.
“The BSP has turned away from Kanshi Ram, the organization’s founder, and Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar. The BSP is the governing party’s backup group and has ties to the BJP. The BJP office selected the BSP candidates for the last assembly elections. Not for the sake of winning, but rather to deny the SP candidates the victory, the BSP candidates were fielded “he stated.
But the public is aware of and realizes that the upcoming Lok Sabha elections are the reason for all of the raids, he added.
Akhilesh Yadav criticize the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh
While criticizing the BJP-led government in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav demanded to know if it would “bulldozer” an IPS officer after an old video of the official requesting money from a businessman surfaced on social media on Sunday.
Will the bulldozers’ course change after this video of an IPS in Uttar Pradesh, or will the involved BJP administration resolve this issue by adding one more name to the list of IPS who have fled their post? The people of UP are realizing that the BJP’s fake zero tolerance for crime is true “read the SP leader’s tweet.
