New Delhi: After Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav taunted PM Narendra Modi’s ongoing visit to Varanasi saying that people ‘spend their last moments in Banaras’, BJP has hit out at the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister saying that the statement shows his mindset and upbringing.
“The language used by Akhilesh Yadav shows his upbringing and mindset. To like this talk about our elders… It also shows the level of anxiety prevalent in the Samajwadi Party. It is unfortunate and not expected from a former chief minister,” Union Minister Anurag Thakur said on Tuesday.
“It’s good that the programmes are one-month long (for Kashi Vishwanath in Varanasi). They (PM Modi & other BJP leaders) should stay there for not only one, two or three months, people also spend their last moments in Banaras,” Yadav had said.
Yadav claimed that the BJP will be thrown out of Uttar Pradesh by the people of the state while promising compensation of Rs 25 lakh for the kin of farmers who lost their lives during the farmer agitation. “The expressways which were built are SP’s expressways. BJP can lie in front of us, but not in front of God. We’ll provide a compensation of Rs 25 lakh to the kin of farmers who lost their lives, once the SP government is formed,” he said.
