BJP Govt Against Backward Classes, Poor: Akhilesh


LUCKNOW — Slamming the BJP government led by Yogi Adityanath in the state for cancelling the public holiday on Vishwakarma Jayanti, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav alleged that this government is against backward classes and the underprivileged, reports PTI.

The Samajwadi Party government in the past introduced a number of schemes for the community while a public holiday was declared for the day.

Samajwadi Party Chief, according to a release, said that the government insulted the Vishwakarma society through the move.

The government should declare a public holiday on Vishwakarma Jayanti, he demanded.

The Uttar Pradesh government in 2017 had cancelled 15 public holidays, including Vishwakarma Jayanti.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had said there should not be a holiday on the birth anniversary of great men and children should be told about them through special programmes.

SP’s chief spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said on the instructions of Akhilesh Yadav, Vishwakarma Jayanti was celebrated at party offices across the state.
