Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Monday claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is hatching a conspiracy to end reservation and hence it is selling government organizations to the private sector. While addressing an election meeting in the Jalalpur assembly constituency, Akhilesh Yadav said his party will win all the seats of Ambedkarnagar and Azamgarh districts in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections.
Meanwhile, on Monday BJP president JP Nadda alleged that Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav protected terrorists during his tenure as the CM of UP, which is witnessing a rule of law today. After 2017, the BJP government has taken strict action against those elements. JP Nadda also accused the SP chief of instigating people by calling the Covid vaccine as the ‘BJP Vaccine’. However, he didn’t stop from taking the jab when needed, BJP President said.
At the same time, voting for the first phase of assembly polls in Manipur was completed on Monday without any major issues.
