SP leader Akhilesh Yadav said, “During Covid [second wave], we witnessed how people were struggling and left at god’s mercy. They were on their own and had to make their own arrangements for bed, oxygen, and treatment. Infrastructure built by the SP government was used during Covid.”
On the party’s plan for the crucial election in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav ruled out an alliance with the BSP and Congress for the 2022 poll. “ The Samajwadi Party will not enter into any alliance with big parties. We will go together in the election with smaller parties,” Akhilesh Yadav said.
There is also no possibility of any tie-up with Congress or BSP this time because we haven’t had a good experience with them, Akhilesh Yadav said.
“People of Uttar Pradesh will decide who is good for them,” the Samajwadi Party chief added.
On an alliance with his uncle Shivpal Yadav for UP elections, Akhilesh Yadav said, “The party is not going to contest from Jaswant Nagar seat where Shivpal Yadav is likely to fight the election.”
Akhilesh Yadav also spoke about the Ayodhya land deal row as he demanded the trust members to resign in the wake of allegations of fraud.
“Members of the trust must resign amid these allegations. Construction of the Ram temple is a fact after the SC decision, but after what reports have emerged, people are questioning the intention.”
The Samajwadi Party along with the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress have alleged that the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has purchased land worth Rs 2 crore at an inflated price of Rs 18.5 crore.
Following these allegations, a war of words erupted between the BJP and the opposition parties, with the Congress demanding a Supreme Court-monitored probe and the saffron party terming it as an attempt to “defame” and “derail” the temple construction.
