Banda (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Apr 30 (ANI): Samajwadi Party (SP) leader, Akhilesh Yadav, on Tuesday, took a jibe at Union Minister Uma Bharti and said that the NDA government was not able to clean Ganga river despite making separate ministry for the same, but the BJP did take away the ticket of Uma Bharti from Jhansi Lok Sabha constituency.
"Keh rahe hain ki paani ki jagah hum jal sansadhan mantralay bana denge. Ek baar BJP ke logon ne Ganga saaf karne ke liye mantralay banaya tha. Aur is baar, jo mantralay diya tha, unki ticket saaf kar di. Ganga saaf nahi hui lekin unki ticket saaf ho gayi. Batao Jhansi se ticket saaf ho gayi hai ki nahi ho gayi hai (They are claiming to make a separate ministry for water. Once, the BJP people had made a separate ministry to clean Ganga river. This time, the person to whom that Ministry was given, that person's ticket has been taken away. They could not clean Ganga river, but took away that person's seat in Jhansi)," Akhilesh said while addressing a rally here.
The BJP has fielded Anurag Sharma from Jhansi seat in the Lok Sabha elections.
At the rally, Akhilesh also criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not giving employment to the young people and rather "advising them to sell Pakora".
"After completing your education do you want to make Pakora? Do you want to become 'Chowkidaar' (watchman)? There was a conspiracy behind all this. The BJP people asked to make Pakora so that the oil that comes from abroad gets used. If the oil will come in more volume then the businesses of their fellow colleagues will also increase... The BJP people want you to fry Pakora in oil coming from abroad and not in mustard oil. They don't want to help the farmers, who grow mustard," Akhilesh said. (ANI)
