The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said that the Samajwadi Party enacted a scripted drama in the name of its silver jubilee celebration to drag Uttar Pradesh public’s attention away from major areas of concern.  “For the past two months, a drama is going on in Uttar Pradesh by the Samajwadi Party in which all kinds of emotions are being showcased. Today (Saturday), it was a day of comic nonsense, as comedy king Lalu Prasad Yadav was there and he performed a comedy. They performed a drama of togetherness,” BJP leader Rajesh Tripathi said.
