BJP will use ‘mantras’ to solve problems, taunts Akhilesh Yadav

"The reality of BJP is coming to the fore. It has made people's life difficult with demonetisation and GST implementation. GST is only for benefit of big traders. It appears that BJP will use 'mantras' to resolve people's problems and not take real steps," Akhilesh Yadav said.

Claiming that GST is beneficial only for big traders, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday mocked the BJP, saying it could even resort to using “mantras” to resolve people’s problems without taking any real steps. “The reality of BJP is coming to the fore. It has made people’s life difficult with demonetisation and GST implementation. GST is only for benefit of big traders. It appears that BJP will use ‘mantras’ to resolve people’s problems and not take real steps,” the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister told party workers in Lucknow.

Noting that the BJP is used to “spreading lies for political gains,” Yadav said his party has to “fight this and counter it”. Accusing the Yogi Adityanath regime of failing on the law-and-order front, Yadav said the state government should explain as to how many criminals and land mafias were put behind bars and what action had been initiated against them. “The morale of police is down and criminals are ruling the roost. Law and order is out of control,” he said.

He alleged that welfare schemes launched during his regime were discontinued as they had the word “Samajwadi” appended to their nomenclature. “The state government is saying that its growth rate is 6 per cent. However, if they ignore Muslims’ contribution in development, it will stand at only 2 per cent,” Yadav said, asking party workers to start preparations for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

          You may practice 'Azan' to get foothold (forget power) in UP. Shame on you, a person who ditched his father, who brought him into power, with no 'abcd' background in politics and forcefully presided over to destroy the party, hurting seriously his father, who kept on stating that his son destroyed the party. The people in UP rejected you outright and still shamelessly issuing statement against the PM Modi, who is the gift of God for Hindustan !!!!

            you are wrong Mr. Akhilesh ! BJP will use gau mutra and gober to solve all the problems of the country ! they already invented that gau mutra contains gold ! that means india will export gold and become rich soon ! for china they already producing gober bombs which is much powerful than chinas collection of hydrogen bombs so our national security is guaranteed. Gau mutra will be used for curing cancer and HIV and all diseases so our countries health problem also solved now ! Gober will be used as tar and cement for making roads and houses so our infrastructure problems will be solved soon with wide gober roads criss cross our country ! Free distribution of gober burger and gau mutra cola in schools will ensure our country's food security ! what else you want ?

              This is another ridiculous Anthony, depressed for not able to do mass conversions. The other anthony occupied India defense forces for a decade, to take Indian military back to several decades, without knowing language remained in power for 'madam'. He like anthonies want to eat anything and every coming in sight, including own mother who fed him. For Hindus of Hindustan, everything is sacred and that include 'gober' no doubt. He should look back at his own sects and mind for it.

              My dear Akhilesh, You became an ACCIDENTAL CHIEF MINISTER, DUE TO GENEROSITY OF YOUR FATHER. YOU DO NOT POSSESS MIND OR INTLECT TO BECOME A MAYOR OF SAMLL VILLEGE, LET ALONE TO BE A CHIEF MINISTER. YOUR IQ IS IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS PAPPU RAHUL, LALU PRASHAD YADAV AND HIS SON, RABRI DEVI. YOUR IC STATEMENT ABOUT INSULTING AND QUESTIONING WHY NO BODY DIED FROM GUJRAT IN ARMY PROVED THAT, YOUR ARE A SHAMEFUL FELLOW, PRIDELESS, SPINELESS AND GUTLESS. MAKING STUPID STATEMENTS LIKE THESE ONLY EXPOSES YOUR IGNORANCE.

                  Yes mantras will be far better than the policies of SP, BSP, CONGRESS AND COMMUNISTS AND OTHER BUNCH JOKERS POLICIES.
