LUCKNOW — Addressing an election rally in Hardoi in Uttar Pradesh, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is creating frictions among people.
“BJP is thriving on a ‘divide and rule’ policy. The party wants to spread hatred. People are losing trust on the party, hence it is creating divisions among them,” Samajwadi Party chief said.
Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said: “Last time (in 2014) he collected votes by offering tea. He made us see dreams that black money would disappear. Money is never black, transactions and dealings are.”
Expressing confidence that “Mahagathbandhan,” an alliance of opposition parties, will throw BJP out of power, Akhilesh Yadav urged the people not to trust those dividing the people.
“Mahagathbandhan will bring ‘maha-parivartan’ (a massive change),” he said.
