LUCKNOW: On a day Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav completed his last leg of Vijay Rath Yatra in Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh, state BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh on Friday alleged that his previous government robbed the local residents of their rights while depriving them of basic amenities like water and roads.

The yatra, which started from Banda two days ago, culminated in Jhansi on Friday with Akhilesh choosing the occasion to allege that the ruling party “befooled the people” of Bundelkhand in the name of development. He said that the people were waiting to “change” the government, which is “known for changing names” (of districts and development projects).

Swatantra Dev replied: “Akhilesh will be filled with shame if he was reminded of his party’s deeds”. “The precious mineral wealth of the region was looted to fill pockets of the families of `samajwadi’ leaders,” he alleged.

The UP BJP chief said that it is due to the public-centric policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the BJP won 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections, besides the 2017 UP elections. “The BJP would again storm back in 2022,” he said, adding that the pair of PM Modi and CM Yogi Adityanath will surely get “people’s blessings”.

He further said that the people of Bundelkhand have not forgotten the day when PM Modi sent a “water train” to the arid region.

Swantantra Dev reiterated that not only irrigation projects, which were pending for years, are being completed but also projects like Har Ghar Jal Scheme, Bundelkhand Expressway and a defence corridor are being fast tracked.

“This is causing trouble to the SP chief,” he said, asserting that the people also remember the gundaraj and extortion racket in the name of mining during the SP regime.
