Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for conducting raids by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in various parts of Delhi and Bihar in the Land for Jobs scam case. Congress started the tradition of raids, which is now being followed by the BJP-led central government, Mandi alleged.
Akhilesh Yadav said that Congress started the tradition of raids and BJP is also following the same path. CBI, ED and IT are working according to the will of the government. Akhilesh Yadav said that Congress also attacked many leaders and now BJP is doing it.
BJP was also attacked in the matter of truth and non-violence. Akhilesh Yadav said that since the BJP government came to power in the country, Uttar Pradesh has forgotten the path of truth.
What is the new work of BJP?
He said that traders in Gujarat know that income tax, ED and CBI work according to the government’s orders. Reacting to the issuance of CBI summons to Tejaswi Yadav, Akhilesh said that the government has been asked to give the list of top ten and top hundred criminals of UP to the people of the state. But the government has not given that list. Now CBI and ED are raiding the house of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav. Akhilesh Yadav sarcastically said that whoever does not praise him (Modi government) will be attacked. He said that there is nothing new in this. On the question regarding Umesh Paul’s murder, Akhilesh said that he should not say which party he belongs to. He accused the bulldozers of taking the path of non-violence in the country.
Atiq Ahmed is in jail in Gujarat. Responding to a question related to this, SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav said that this work is not ours but the government’s. The government meets many times and takes such decisions. He said that the nomination was made from jail by the BJP government itself. He said that while SP was contesting in the by-elections, BJP senior leaders held their family members and forced them to contest the elections.
