Lucknow| Hours after Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati expressed her desire to become the prime minister, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said that he too wanted the same and had forged an alliance with his party last time (in the 2019 general elections).
Akhilesh said that if their alliance had continued, the BSP and the followers of Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar would have seen who would become the prime minister.
Asked by reporters here after the Iftar party about Mayawati’s aspirations to become the Prime Minister, Akhilesh said, “I am happy with this (statement). That’s what I wanted too. Last time (in 2019 Lok Sabha elections) the alliance (with BSP) was formed for this. He said, if the alliance with the people of Bahujan Samaj continues, then the BSP and those who follow the principles of Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar would see who would become the Prime Minister of the country.
Earlier, Mayawati had said, in the coming days, I can only dream of becoming the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and the Prime Minister of the country, but I can never dream of becoming the President. Regarding the bulldozers being run in the state, Yadav alleged that action is being taken keeping in view the caste and religion. If they demolish the houses and houses of BJP people, they will give compensation, he alleged.
In Gorakhpur, shops were vandalized in 700 meters and after that compensation was given. It is heard that not 100-150 crore rupees but 200 crore compensation was raised.
He said, if the government can give compensation to the Chief Minister, then why can’t the poor get compensation? It is worth mentioning that shops and structures were demolished for road widening in Gorakhpur.
On the removal of loudspeakers from religious places, Yadav said, the government should also release the list of job givers..
