Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Feb. 19 (ANI): Congress on Sunday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for criticizing the work done by the Samajwadi Party and said that ruling dispensation is presenting distorted facts and figures to the people. "BJP have a right to raise questions on the Samajwadi Party. But even the people have a right to question the work done by the BJP government in past three years. The way the senior leaders of their party are distorting the facts and figures is very condemnable, undignified and shameful," Congress leader Surendra Rajput told ANI. Further commenting on the third-phase of assembly election in the state, Rajput said both Congress and Samajwadi Party have a strong foot hold in the region and expressed hope to win the election with majority. Uttar Pradesh would vote for 69 constituencies spread in 12 districts in third phase today. The districts which will go for poll in this phase are Farrukhabad, Hardoi, Kannauj, Mainpuri, Etawah, Kanpur, Kanpur Dehat, Auraiya, Lucknow, Unnao, Sitapur and Barabanki. Around 2 crore and 41 lakh voters, including over 1 crore 10 lakh women and 1028 third gender will decide the political fate of 826 candidates including 105 women in the fray. (ANI)
