Lucknow: On Wednesday Uttar-Pradesh assembly witnessed a heated argument between Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and leader of opposition Akhilesh Yadav.
“Who has made the roads, the expressway, the metro? It seems all of this has been built by selling your land in Saifai.”These words of Maurya didn’t quite go well with the LOP to which he aggressively reacted saying “Do you take money from your father to do build roads?”. After this, CM Yogi Adityanath had to step in and say, “Using indecent words against a respected leader is not right. I would very politely say to the leader of the opposition that you should not have been so agitated. The question is not of Saifai. The development work that we are getting done or the development work that might have been done during your government was our duty being in the government. The government has the right to declare its achievements.”
“Consent and dissent are the strength of democracy but if the Deputy Chief Minister is making his point, I think we should listen to him. Many things about the leader of the opposition too might be wrong, but we have heard. We will accept what we have to accept and respond to it, but it is not appropriate to display such excitement.” he added.
The Dy CM in his speech had also said “The leader of the opposition does not get tired of counting the achievements of his five-year tenure. Which disease do you have? If there is any disease, I would say that you get tested.” he also said “I would request that the Leader of the Opposition should get proper treatment from wherever he wants. Get rid of this disease of pasting a sticker of the Samajwadi Party on every scheme. You have been out of power for five years. Now, out again for five more years. Your number will not come for the next 25 years.”
