- Akhilesh mocked the BJP for the implementation of demonetisation and GST
- It (BJP) has made people’s life difficult with demonetisation and GST implementation, he said
- He also accused the Yogi Adityanath regime of failing on the law-and-order front
LUCKNOW: Claiming that GST is beneficial only for big traders, Samajwadi Partychief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday mocked the BJP, saying it could even resort to using “mantras” to resolve people’s problems without taking any real steps.
“The reality of BJP is coming to the fore. It has made people’s life difficult with demonetisation and GST implementation. GST is only of benefit to big traders. It appears that BJP will use ‘mantras’ to resolve people’s problems and not take real steps,” the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister told party workers here.
Noting that the BJP is used to “spreading lies for political gains,” Yadav said his party has to “fight this and counter it”.
Accusing the Yogi Adityanath regime of failing on the law-and-order front, Yadav said the state government should explain as to how many criminals and land mafias were put behind bars and what action had been initiated against them.
