Lucknow: Launching a fierce attack on Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that those who are talking of providing free electricity had kept Uttar Pradesh in dark.
“Those who talk of providing ‘electricity’ for free, kept Uttar Pradesh in ‘dark’. In his time, it was only darkness, what was left, only riots and curfew happened. When you will not give electricity, then what will you give for ‘free’?,” Yogi Adityanath tweeted.
“In the year 2017 as soon as the BJP government was formed, we did 3 things – 1) Closed Illegal slaughterhouses, 2) Anti-Romeo Squad was formed for the protection of daughters. 3) Waived-off the loans of farmers,” he said.
The tweet further said that when Samajwadi Party came to power in 2012, the first thing they did was to withdraw the cases of terrorists who attacked Shri Ram Janmabhoomi.
