Akhilesh Yadav

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.

India

New Delhi | The recent international survey, which described India as the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the alleged high risk of sexual violence, was based on “perception” and “flawed methodology”, the Rajya Sabha was informed today.

Union minister of state for home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said the report was not based on any scientific survey but a poll of a statistically insignificant sample of persons and presents a distorted picture of the comparative state of women safety in different countries.

“The said polling survey has been rejected by the National Commission for Women as it is based on perception and flawed methodology. However, steps have been taken for increasing safety of women,” he said replying to a written question.

The survey by a British media organisation of about 550 experts on issues faced by women claimed last month that India was the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labour.

War-torn Afghanistan and Syria ranked second and third, respectively, followed by Somalia and Saudi Arabia.

New Delhi | The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the functioning of the state government is “completely paralysed” and it can’t order transfer or posting of officers despite the recent Constitution bench verdict on the administration of Delhi.

The bench of Justices AK Sikri and Navin Sinha said it knows everything and the matter will be taken on July 26 since it is not a regular bench.

Senior advocate P Chidambaram who was representing the Delhi government said, “Functioning of the government is completely paralysed. We cannot post officers, we cannot transfer officers despite the recent constitution bench verdict which has explained every aspect. These issues needs to be adjudicated at the earliest.”

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, who also appeared for the Delhi government, said officers are not willing to file an affidavit on this matter and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had therefore filed the affidavit. “I just wanted to clarify the situation.”

Earlier a five-judge Constitution bench including Chief Justice Dipak Misra recently stated broad parameters for the governance of the Delhi which had a constant power tussle between the Centre and Delhi government since the election of Aam Aadmi Party in 2014.
