Barabanki (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Feb. 16 (ANI): In a scathing attack against the Uttar Pradesh's ruling party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday dubbed the Samajwadi Party as anti-farmer. Prime Minister Modi claimed that in spite of the Central government providing funds for the farmers, no work is done by the state government in their favour. Targeting other political rivals, the Prime Minister said Uttar Pradesh can develop only when the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Congress would be removed. "Uttar Pradesh will progress only when SP, BSP and Congress are removed. I urge people in UP to elect a BJP government devoted to development," he said while addressing a rally here. "Till the time you will not punish SP, BSP and Congress, Uttar Pradesh will not change," he added. Asserting confidence of achieving favourable mandate, Prime Minister Modi said an environment of contempt against the SP, BSP and Congress can be seen in Uttar Pradesh. "Our government is for the poor, the underprivileged, the marginalized, the farmers. You can change the situation by placing your finger on the right symbol," he said. Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Hardoi, took potshots at incumbent Akhilesh Yadav's government, alleging that police stations in Uttar Pradesh have become Samajwadi Party's office and vowed to eradicate 'gundaraj' if the BJP comes to power. "Can any political party's office be at police stations? he police take permission from the Samajwadi Party workers to lodge a case. Police stations have become the Samajwadi Party's offices. The highest number of political murders are perpetrated in UP. Law and order has completely collapsed in the state. There should be no discrimination in the deliverance of justice," he said. (ANI)
