SP, BSP used govt machinery for personal interests: Mahendra Nath Pandey

Mahendra Nath Pandey said his target would be "winning all the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh" and not just SP and BSP-free poll booths. He said the primary responsibility of BJP workers is to make people aware of the government's works and collect feedback.

Newly appointed UP BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey, who arrived in Lucknow on Monday, alleged the previous dispensations of the SP and the BSP used the government machinery for their own benefit.

The governments of the BSP and the SP served their personal interests upon coming to power. The BJP serves the people and that is the difference, he said. “They politicised the government machinery for their own benefit,” Pandey, who arrived in Lucknow to a rousing reception, alleged.

He said his target would be “winning all the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh” and not just SP and BSP-free poll booths. He said the primary responsibility of BJP workers is to make people aware of the government’s works and collect feedback.

Pandey said Chief Minsiter Yogi Adityanath was a “sensitive leader” and that his government was prompt in fulfilling the promises it made in the run-up to the assembly elections.

Earlier, Pandey arrived at the Chowdhary Charan Singh Airport. He was received by outgoing UP BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya, who is now the deputy chief minister, and other party leaders.
