Uttar Pradesh News, UP Election 2022 Live Updates: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday released the party’s manifesto for women ahead of the Uttar Pradesh elections. From smartphones and scooters, to healthcare benefits and protection, the manifesto aims to strengthen the party’s footing in the state.
The party is also expected to release a “charge sheet” to “expose” its rivals — namely, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) — on the promises it made to the public over the last three decades.
On Tuesday, targetting the Samajwadi Party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said “laal topi waale (those wearing red caps)” were like “red alert” for Uttar Pradesh. In response, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said those with red caps were also “red alerts” for the BJP, as they would “oust it from the power” in the next Assembly elections.
In other news, the Samajwadi Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal formally announced their alliance for the upcoming polls on Tuesday by holding a rally in Meerut. Akhilesh Yadav and Jayant Chaudhary accused the BJP government of anti-farmer policies and politics of hatred, and said it was on its way out.
