BJP is the biggest casteist party: Akhilesh Yadav

Mumbai: Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav has alleged that BJP is the biggest casteist party in India. It has spread venom in the name of religion and caste. They have taken the nation on the wrong path. He said that BJP leaders say they demonetisation will curb black money and corruption. All it did was change the color of notes.

He also raised the issue of errors in EVMs. He said,”Several countries of the world conduct elections via ballot papers. When we put a stamp on a ballot paper we put a stamp on the performance of the govt. When we cast the vote through EVM it is a machine which votes for us.”

He targeted the BJP government in Maharashtra also. Akilesh said in Mumbai,”Maharashtra is one of the most economically developed states but the highest number of suicides were recorded in this state. They say they will waive off farm loans. How many farmers had their loan waived off in Maharashtra?
