Akhilesh Yadav criticized the BJP government on a number of issues from agrarian crisis to poor healthcare.

 

Former UP Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party patron Akhilesh Yadav took a jibe at the current Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Without mincing his words, he criticised the BJP government on a number of issues from farm crisis to poor road development in the state. Let’s have a look at the highlights from his speech:

  1. On Yogi breaking Noida Jinx:

Akhilesh while putting up a case for frequent transfers of IPS officers also sarcastically criticized Yogi Adityanath’s Noida visit. He said, while it is brave of Yogi Adityanath to go to Noida for the first time and break the taboo, its effects he believed, will be seen sooner.

  1. PM takes credit for all the developments

In a veiled jibe at PM Modi, Akhilesh Yadav said the BJP inaugurated metro project started by the Samajwadi government. However, he continued, “CM Yogi did not even get the chance to hoist the flag or press the inaugural button. That tells all.”

  1. Who paints Toilet with Saffron colour?

The UP government landed in trouble after the goof-up of painting the Haj house with saffron. Moreover, a case of painting the toilets saffron had come to fore as well. Taking a dig Akhilesh Yadav asked, “Who paints the toilets saffron? “Painting the toilet saffron is an insult to our religion,” he jeered.

    Poor condition of patients at BRD hospital

The deaths of children in Gorakhpur’s BRD hospital due to lack of oxygen had exposed the poor health infrastructure of the state. Akhilesh Yadav attacked the Yogi government saying, “During the Samajwadi government, we had built the hospital with 500 beds. What are the facilities Yogi government is providing? Isn’t the government aware of the deaths?” He also demanded that government should reveal how much budget has been allocated for hospitals.

  1. No relief from Potholes on the roads

Mocking the poor roads in the state, Akhilesh Yadav said the roads in the state have become better than that of the expressway Samajwadi government built. Further mocking the government for not fulfilling its promise, he asked that all the roads have now become potholes-free.

  1. The state government lying about the agrarian crisis in the state.

Akhilesh Yadav also attacked UP government for not paying heed to the problems of potato farmers. Two days ago the potato farmers dumbed kilos of the produce in front of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly to protest the low prices for their crop.

  1. BJP has insulted the Hindu Gods

Targeting Yogi’s remarks “Ram Bhatak Gaye hai” i.e. Ram has lost its way; Akhilesh Yadav said it is sad that a sage Chief Minister is saying this. He asked if this is the language a sage use for its god. “BJP has insulted our gods,” Yadav said.

While asked about constant failure in the local body elections, Akhilesh Yadav said that the Samajwadi party is bracing itself for the general elections of 2019 and 2022. It will strengthen its booth management system and organizational structure. However, when asked about the alliance, he brushed the question aside saying he will focus on the party first.

Katas Raj dham

New Delhi | The Pakistan High Commission on Sunday said it has issued visas to 139 Indian pilgrims to visit Katas Raj Dham, the famous Shiva temple, in the country’s Punjab province.

Under the framework of a bilateral protocol on visits to religious shrines, Sikh and Hindu pilgrims from India visit Pakistan every year. Pakistani pilgrims also visit India every year under the protocol. “Another group of Indian pilgrims, comprising 139 people, have been issued visas by the Pakistan High Commission to visit Shree Katas Raj Dham in Chakwal district from December 9-15,” the Pakistan High Commission said.

Last month, Pakistan had granted visas to more than 3,800 Sikh pilgrims to visit the country. Some of the pilgrims had attended the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur corridor on November 28 in Narowal. The corridor will link the Darbar Sahib shrine in Kartarpur in Pakistan’s Punjab province to Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district in India.

Earlier this month, over 220 Indian pilgrims were granted visas to visit the famous Hindu temple, Shadani Darbar, in Sukkur.  Katas Raj is one of the holiest places for the Hindu community in Pakistan. The temples form a complex surrounding a pond named Katas — which is regarded as sacred by the devotees.

Pakistan’s High Commissioner Sohail Mahmood stated that the issuance of visas for yet another group of pilgrims from India was consistent with Government’s of Pakistan’s policy of promoting visits to religious shrines and was a reflection of its commitment to faithfully implement the 1974 Protocol, the High Commission said in a release. He said that Pakistan remained committed to providing all possible facilitation for the visiting pilgrims and strengthening people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.
