Gorakhpur: Addressing a public rally on Sunday Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav appealed to dislodge Mayawati led government in the state. Targeting the BSP government, SP supremo promised stern action against unscrupulous elements and rule of peace and prosperity in the state if the party is voted to power.

Taking a dig on the present BSP government, Singh said, “BSP did nothing in their five year tenure to count upon.”

He alleged that the BSP regime registered around one lakh false cases against SP workers, while not a single BJP and Congress workers were booked.

Counting on his achievements during SP rule, Singh said, “The SP government had opened several sugar mills in the state but the BSP conspired to close them all and sold their property and land at throwaway prices. We gave sufficient support price for sugarcane but in BSP’s tenure the sugarcane farmers were left in lurch.”

“We inducted 25000 youth in the police forces but as soon as the BSP came to power, they were rendered jobless. Their government even failed to acknowledge that there were 25 percent dalits among them” added Mulayam Singh Yadav.

He promised, “If our party is voted to power, we would bear the expenses in the treatment of major diseases alongwith providing free medical care.”

“All the students will receive free education till graduation and the unemployment allowance will be enhanced to RS 12000 from Rs 6000,” he added. 

Mulayam also lashed out at Congress leader Digvijay Singh for use of mere rhetoric despite losing grounds in state after state.
