Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday alleged that the previous governments in the state used to supply power on the basis of caste lines. Yogi said that people did not get electricity on Holi and Diwali, but only on Muharram and Eid, PTI reported.

“Earlier, power connections were given on caste lines and people didn’t get electricity on Holi and Diwali, but on Muharram and Eid,” said the chief minister while addressing a rally in Domariaganj. However, he stressed that the situation in the state is different now as Prime Minister Narendra Modi believed in ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ (support for all, development for all).

The statement is on the lines of PM Modi’s comments in 2017 when he invoked that if people get electricity on Ramzan then they should get power supply during Diwali as well.

Mocking the SP-BSP alliance in the state, the CM said, “Shivpal Yadav (Akhilesh’s uncle) says that he has no sister. So, where did the ‘bua’ (aunt) came from?”. The comment was an apparent reference to Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati.

“Everyone knows that the new relationship is built to hide each other’s sins and the relationship will eventually break on May 23,” the chief minister said.

He said that people would give a befitting reply to Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for her remarks that wherever her party was weak in the state, it has fielded such candidates who would cut into the BJP vote share. “People will give a befitting reply like a ‘muhnochwa’ to the vote-cutter remarks of the ‘shehzadi’ (princess’),” Adityanath said, in an apparent reference to Vadra.
