The Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav hit out at Narendra Modi on Monday saying the BJP prime ministerial candidate is desperate to form government at the Centre but he is afraid of the Samajwadi Party.
“Modi is desperate to form government at the Centre but he is afraid of SP and telling one lie after another in desperation. He speaks maximum lies on Gujarat model, which is a farce,” said Yadav while addressing an election rally in UP.
He alleged that during Modi’s regime, thousands of farmers committed suicide and over 20 lakh people were unemployed in Gujarat, while under his regime only four farmers have committed suicide in Uttar Pardesh that too due to personal reasons.
“There was shortage of medicines and doctors in the hospitals and women were malnourished in Gujarat. 44,000 children were missing there, who could not be traced,” claimed Yadav.
Referring to misuse of dowry and SC/ST acts, he said that during SP regime misuse of these laws would be checked and cases would be lodged against those misusing it.
Hitting out at BSP, Yadav alleged that not a single unit was added to the power generation capacity of the state during Mayawati’s government, whereas during SP regime the state would soon get adequate power supply.
Mulayam also said that BSP was no where in the scene and the main contest was between Modi and himself and people should vote for SP to prevent communal forces.
Protesting workers took to the street refusing to pick up garbage in the area and instead spread rotting garbage across the roads.
