Lucknow. The Samajwadi Party (SP) on Sunday celebrated the 118th birth anniversary of Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan in all districts, including the party's state headquarters. SP's National President and former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav , in his statement, saluted the Lok Nayak and attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party government in the state. Akhilesh Yadav said that the people at the top of power will humiliate the opposition, so how will the honor of democracy be saved. He said that the opposition would not be weakened by making irrelevant allegations like "DNA" on the opposition.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had said on Saturday that partition is in the DNA of the opposition. According to a release from the SP office on Sunday, Akhilesh Yadav said, democracy is not for power but for the good of the people. To run Lokraj, one should learn to conduct local affairs. There was no power at all in Loknayak. He was devoted to democratic beliefs. We should take inspiration from his life. He said, the state does not have a strong forced government and it fails on every front. The BJP is irritated by the development work done during the time of the socialist government, otherwise Lok Nayak Jaypee does not ignore the International Center.
The former Chief Minister alleged that the BJP government is not giving the budget for the little work that was left during the Samajwadi Government. This shows how low-level the mindset of the BJP government and its leadership are. He claimed that the BJP leadership had no contribution in the freedom movement, so he could not have a sense of the importance and necessity of the JP Center.
Samajwadi Party activists garlanded Jaypee's birth anniversary on Sunday in all the districts with his pictures and statues. The statue of Jayaprakash Narayan, installed at the Jaypee International Center in the capital Lucknow, was garlanded by National Secretary Rajendra Chaudhary and State President Naresh Uttam Patel on behalf of the party's national president. In the party's state office, a wreath was paid to Jayaprakash Narayan's portrait. 60 youth donated blood at the Civil Hospital in Lucknow under the leadership of youth leader Deepak Ranjan.
