Will contest 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP in 2024: Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav: Samajwadi Party-led alliance will contest all 80 Lok Sabha seats in next year’s general elections, party chief Akhilesh Yadav announced on Saturday. SP contested the 2022 assembly elections along with Rashtriya Lok Dal, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), Mahan Dal, Apna Dal (K) and Janwadi parties. After that, SBSP and Mahan Dal split. Speaking at a press conference organized in Azamgarh, he denied that there would be no alliance with the Congress before the elections.

Meanwhile, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav came to Azamgarh to condole the death of senior party leader Balram Yadav’s wife. He made the above comments while speaking in this order. However, he said he was optimistic about forming a new front to defeat the BJP. The SP chief took the names of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, West Bengal Mamata Banerjee and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) as potential faces of the new front. However, it is noteworthy that Akhilesh Yadav made this announcement just days after Mamata Banerjee announced that the Trinamool Congress would contest the 2024 elections alone.

Also, the ‘bulldozer policy’ of the state government was criticized. He said that the country should be run according to the constitution and not by bulldozer system. Akhilesh Yadav also reiterated his demand for caste enumeration. He called upon the youth to teach BJP a lesson in 2024. He said that if there was a SP government in UP, an international match would have been held in Azamgarh. The government talks a lot about the international airport at Azamgarh, but the budget does not mention the funds allocated for its development.

He said that the BJP could not predict the reasons behind its defeat in the recent by-elections in Main Puri. Akhilesh Yadav said that BJP’s defeat in Mainpuri was due to failure to provide employment, better health facilities and failure to control inflation. He criticized the incumbent for not having answers to the opposition’s questions on inflation, unemployment and crumbling health infrastructure.
