BJP general secretary Amit Shah labelled Azamgargh as a “base of terrorists” who, he said, were being backed by the Samajwadi Party government.
Campaigning for BJP’s Azamgarh candidate, Ramakant Yadav who is taking on SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shah said the number of terrorists from here was high as the state government was advocating their release in many cases connected to them.
“Azamgarh is the base of terrorists as there is no fear of the government, which is advocating their release,” the BJP in-charge for Uttar Pradesh said.

“The accused in Gujarat bomb blasts are from Azamgarh. Being the Home minister there (Gujarat), I have got the accused arrested. Since then not a single terrorist act has taken place in Gujarat,” he said.
Attacking Mulayam, the BJP leader alleged that the former’s socialism was limited to promoting nepotism and added that he was preparing political ground for his second son Prateek Yadav in Azamgarh.
Dubbing Congress the most corrupt government, Shah alleged that it usurped Rs 12 lakh crore through scams during its 10-year-rule, and accused the ruling party of neglecting the borders which were facing threat.
Attacking SP and BSP supremos, Shah said Mulayam and Mayawati were claiming that they would become the next prime minister, but they have no existence outside UP.
At a meeting in Balla, while replying to criticism by Congress against BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, he said Modi has not been accused of a single scam or corruption during his 14-year-rule, which was a record.
