“SP would gain seats in large numbers in the coming polls as it has done work…the works that we have done is before the people… there is no village left which has not benefitted from schemes like laptop distribution, kanya vidhaydhan among others,” he told reporters after a meeting of the state cabinet.
Without naming BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, he said, “Some people were out to compete with us on rallies but were defeated…then compared us with achievements but got defeated in that also.”
