For the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls that are due in early 2017, Uma Bharti, Union Water Resources Minister accused Samajwadi Party of not able to handle the degenarting law and order situation in the state.
Uma Bharti said “the present situation in the most populous state is worse than that of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Bharti looked confident about BJP and said that it will form the next government with full majority in Uttar Pradesh next year.
“Akhilesh Yadav has not got the opportunity to work as the chief minister as there are many super chief ministers in Uttar Pradesh,” she said.
Uma Bharti added that Samajwadi Party for the first time ever after gaining power in the state had failed to deliver it on the development front.
“Earlier in the name of appeasement, some welfare works were done for the poor,” she said.
The Upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections will serve as a “litmus test” for Rahul Gandhi, Congress vice-president as BJP looks optimistic of repeating its 2014 Lok Sabha polls performance in Uttar Pradesh and had send maximum MPs to the Parliament.
In 2014, BJP had won 71 out of the 80 Lok Sabha seats.
Congress, which is doing all efforts in order to establish again its political hold in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, had managed to win just 2 seats of Amethi and Rae Bareilly in the general election.
Samajwadi Party had won from five seats while BSP was not even able to “open its account.”
