Akhilesh chides BJP, BSP for their anti-development approach
Denouncing the BJP and BSP for posing an obstacle in the development process, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today assured better power supply in villages by 2016.
'No other political outfit, barring the SP, is concerned so much about the development of the country,' Mr Yadav, who is the Samajwadi Party president in UP, claimed during an election meeting here.
He promised 16-hour power supply in villages and 24-hour power supply in cities, if his party emerges winner in the Lok Sabha elections.
The UP CM hit out at the BJP and the BSP for being alike and against the development of the state, as well as the nation.
The government has made an arrangement of Rs 25 lakh for treatment to the poor out of the Member of Parliament Local Area Development (MPLAD) funds, Mr Yadav said.
Besides, it has started ambulance service for the patients and distributed laptops to XII pass students, he added.
Mr Yadav lambasted BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi for misleading the people in the name of Gujarat model.
'Gujarat model of development is nothing, but a term much publicised by the media,' he commented.
The CM asked people to think many times before casting their vote.
