Rejecting reports of differences with senior party leaders over his style of functioning,Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said he was getting “full support and guidance” from them in running the state government.

“We are getting full support and guidance of seniors. We are benefiting from experience,” Yadav said to a question on relations between the younger and senior politicians in the assembly.

There had been reports of differences between senior SP leaders including Mohammad Azam Khan and Ambika Chaudhary and Akhilesh.

The Chief Minister,who was addressing a youth summit here,talked about the importance of creating a balance between modern thought and experience.

When asked about the law and order situation and electricity supply crisis in UP during the interactive session with students,Akhilesh said,“We are committed to improving both. We are working continuously to improve the law and order and the electricity situation.”

In his address,he highlighted the importance of computer education and increasing the literacy rate among girls in the state. “Very soon we will distribute 24 lakh tablet computers and 18 lakh laptops to high school and intermediate pass students in our state. We had made this promise in our election manifesto and now we will fulfill it,” he said.

The SP has maintained that computers,though important,should not be used as an alternative to humans and should not compromise employment opportunities.
