Akhilesh also took the Prime Minister apart on the ‘SCAM’ remark, saying, “You all must have been hearing what the senior BJP minister said about removing SCAMs. He also named buaa (Mayawati) in his speech. Even we want to get rid of scams. We want to save the country from Amit Shah and Prime Minister Modi.”
