Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Jan. 23 (ANI): The Bhaujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Monday trained guns at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party and alleged that the promises made by the ruling party in its election manifesto are false and misleading. "The promises made by Samajwadi Party in their election manifesto are misleading for the public," said a statement issued by the BSP. Highlighting his development agenda as he announced the Samajwadi Party's election manifesto for the assembly polls, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav yesterday dubbed the BSP as 'patthar wali sarkar'. Launching a frontal attack on BSP supremo Mayawati, Akhilesh said the 'patthar wali sarkar' has done nothing for the state and just focused on erecting stone statues of elephants, its poll symbol. "If the BSP comes to power, its government will install bigger elephants. Some parties are only interested in combinations, but everyone knows who wants to develop the state," he said. The poll process in Uttar Pradesh begins on February 11. 73 constituencies in western Uttar Pradesh will go polls in this phase. The filing of nominations for these constituencies will end on January 24. Uttar Pradesh is set to have a seven-phase polling between February 11 and March 8. (ANI)
