Kanpur: On the second day of the first phase of his ‘Vijay Yatra’, Samajwadi Party national president Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday called on the mother of late MP Phoolan Devi in Kalpi area of Jalaun district.
Soon after addressing a public meeting in Kalpi, Akhilesh broke the security cordon and met Mula Devi, mother of ex-MP Phoolan Devi and sought her blessings after kissing her hands. Phoolan’s mother blessed Akhilesh to form the government with full majority in the state.
In the public meeting organised in Hamirpur’s Kurara, Akhilesh attacked the Centre and the state government, and raised the issues of Lakhimpur Kheri, farmers, inflation, youth and unemployment. “Farmers are agitating for the withdrawal of three agricultural laws, so they are now being crushed under jeeps. If given a chance again, the people of BJP will also crush the Constitution,” he said.
Taking a jibe at the government’s policy of running bulldozers, Akhilesh said that in the 2022 elections, the public is ready to bulldoze the BJP through its votes. “This time the people of Bundelkhand are going to handle the steering of the bulldozer themselves,” he said.
He said that this government only has expertise in changing the name and stalling the work.
“The country’s resources are being sold. Aeroplanes have been sold, deals to sell airports and ports have been done. Job opportunities are being scrapped. He said that inflation has reached an all time high under the rule of those who promised to double the income of farmers,” he said.
Diesel and petrol prices have crossed Rs 100 mark, said Akhilesh and added, “Theft is also being done in the sack of DAP manure.”
He asked the farmers whether their income had doubled or not, the answer was no.
Raising the issue of Anna Pratha of Bundelkhand, Akhilesh said that the government has bungled billions of money in the name of Anna Pratha and even today the farmers of Bundelkhand are unable to take more than one yield. “That’s why poverty is prevailing here. They (BJP) also took lands of farmers in the name of Defence Corridor,” he said.
He added, “They also made a false promise of providing employment in the name of setting up ammunition and missile factories and the reality is in front of everyone. “Their words have merely become ‘sutli- bombs’.”
He said that during the Samajwadi Party regime, the ‘mandis’ were formed for the welfare of the farmers. “Again the work of making the farmers happy would be done by forming the government so that the country is not dependent on the supply of food grains from abroad.”
Taking a jibe at the chief minister, he further said that he is ‘chilamjeevi’, and does not know anything. “For four-and-a-half years, which kind of tablets he was giving to the public, that now they are going around beating drums of distributing tablets. They only like two things, a bull and a bulldozer,” he said.
After the formation of the SP government in the state, full care will be taken of the farmers, youth and women here. Crop insurance will be given to farmers, employment to youth and triple pension to women, he claimed.
He said that instead of providing facilities to the people in the epidemic, people were seen running for oxygen or for beds, but in this hour of disaster, 102 and 108 ambulances run by the Samajwadi government worked to transport people to the hospital.
The government, which advised the unemployed to sell ‘pakoras’, also hiked mustard oil to Rs 250 a litre.
