SP To Maintain Same Distance From The BJP And The Congress, For Now: Akhilesh
Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the Samajwadi Party, said on Friday that his organisation will keep an equal distance from both the Congress and the BJP in its battle against the saffron movement.
He said that the SP will fully support Mamata Banerjee of the Trinamool Congress in their fight against the BJP.
We are with Mamata didi in Bengal. Our current attitude is to keep a similar space between the BJP and the Congress. What stake does Congress have in Uttar Pradesh? On the eve of his party's workers' meeting, he spoke to media and said, "We will keep fighting the BJP.
The SP leader earlier praised Banerjee for beating the BJP in the West Bengal Assembly election in 2021 while addressing at the workers' conference. The Samajwadi Party is willing to sacrifice everything to uphold the nation's Constitution. If we can take down the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, we can take down the BJP nationwide. To save the Constitution and secularism in our nation, we must struggle, he remarked.
Yadav criticised the BJP-led union government for allegedly selling the nation's assets to private parties and foreign governments.
There isn't any responsibility. Without mentioning the Adani Group specifically, the former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh questioned why public funds from LIC and SBI were handed to someone whose shares are dropping everyday.
He said that while the Government does not take action against such actions, it promptly dispatches the CBI and ED to harass opposition party leaders.
Yadav said that the saffron camp has developed a "BJP vaccine" that, once administered, renders corrupt party officials immune.
Yadav questioned why the BJP remains quiet on Yogi Adityanath's recent statements "insulting" B R Ambedkar in response to the criticism Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been receiving for his recent remarks made on foreign soil.
Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, insulted Babasaheb Ambedkar in his address, but the BJP was unconcerned about it, he said. "The BJP is upset about what a Congress politician has said on foreign soil, but is not worried about that," he stated.
Rahul Gandhi has come under fire from senior BJP figures, including Union ministers, for saying that India's institutions are under attack on a "full-scale" basis and that democracy is in danger there. Leaders of the Congress, however, argue that Gandhi has legitimately criticised the leadership of the governing party.
