New Delhi [India], Feb. 5 (ANI): Reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "SCAM" taunt on the political rivals in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said that the people of state looks up to the former for a government which would ensure their welfare and zero tolerance against corruption. BJP leader G. V. L. Narsimha Rao said that the people of Uttar Pradesh have experienced unlimited corruption under the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) governance and added that these parties have indulged in loots of the highest order. "Under Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi's guidance the people of Uttar Pradesh sees a hope of government that is not only going to work for the welfare of the people and will also ensure zero tolerance against corruption," Rao told ANI. Prime Minister Modi on Saturday, while addressing a rally at Meerut said that Uttar Pradesh will not show any progress unless it is free from corruption, which can be achieved only if the 'SCAM' is removed from power, adding that UP has the potential to be India's most prosperous state. "The ruling Government in Uttar Pradesh is one that needs to be removed from power immediately, because they are a Government that collectively supports rogues and goons. There is no value for anybody's life in this state. One has no guarantee that he or she will return home alive after stepping out of his/her home. This state has made me what I am, and I will not rest until this government is replaced," he said. Further speaking on the condition of farmers in UP, he alleged that the Government might have some deals with sugarcane mills in the state, because of which farmers have not been paid yet. He went on to assure the public that if BJP comes to power in UP, the farmers will be reimbursed within fourteen days. "After BJP comes to power, we will make sure that loans for small and marginal farmers are waived off. Furthermore, we will also do everything that I needed to ensure safety of women and generate more employment opportunities for youth in the state," PM Modi added. (ANI)
