New Delhi: With an eye on the Uttar Pradesh polls, BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday lashed out at the Congress, the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), in a speech at Kakori on the outskirts of Lucknow. Meanwhile he announced that the party will work hard to ensure development in Uttar Pradesh as its progress was related to the country.
Amit Shah’s visit to Kakori was part of a nationwide event by the BJP called ‘Azadi 70 – Yaad Karo Kurbani’, a precursor to the party's much hyped ‘Tiranga Yatra’ that will begin from August 16.
Further Taking on the opposition Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Congress, the BJP chief said that his party will ensure that all communities get the fruits of development unlike the other parties who work for particular communities.
“If SP or BSP come to power in UP, they will work only for a particular community; BJP alone believes in "sabka saath, sabka vikas" (development of all),” Shah added. “No development in country since Independence as government was run by one family for 60 years,” he added. Assembly elections will be held in Uttar Pradesh in early 2017.
