Backing his advocacy for Mulayam, Akhilesh said that ‘Netaji’, as the SP chief is popularly known, can understand the problems of those residing below poverty line in a better way and he is constantly fighting for the welfare of farmers and poor. “There is no other leader in the country, whose stature is bigger than Mulayam so he is going to be next PM of the country,” he added.

The Uttar Pradesh CM, while holding rallies in Chatra-Giridih and Nawada in Bihar on Friday, trained his guns on the Gujarat Chief Minister and said that only UP can bring BJP’s juggernaut to a halt. He also acknowledged the fact that if Uttar Pradesh, which sends highest number of members to Lok Sabha, can’t thwart Modi wave, no other power on this planet can prevent him from becoming Prime Minister.

Further sharpening his attack on Modi, Akhilesh called the former ‘less-educated’. The BJP leader has, he added, little knowledge about nation’s history and geography.

 “Muslims are yet to forget 2002 riots and if people still like Modi and want to give him power to rule, it would result in the country’s division,” he said.

‘No development in Bihar’

During the rally, Akhilesh also launched a blistering attack on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Akhilesh said that till yesterday, the Janata Dal (United) leader was singing hymns in praise of BJP and the people know him very well.

Akhilesh said that the people of Bihar will give a befitting reply to Nitish in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Interacting with the gathering, the SP leader also appealed to them to help his party gain more teeth.

Criticizing Nitish, Akhilesh further said, “Nitish has got habit of patting his own back. All talks of development are null and void especially when the farmers have not been provided access to basic necessities like electricity and adequate sources of irrigation. The development may have taken place on papers but nothing actually happened on the surface.”

Talking about SP government, which is in power in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh said that his government has waived loans of farmers upto Rs 50,000 but nothing of that sort has happened in Bihar in spite of the state facing problems of famine. He also said that the Bihar government did not even provide diesel in subsidized rates.
