In shocking statement, Akhilesh Yadav asks ‘was anyone martyred from Gujarat?’

In a highly insensitive comment, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Samajwadi party leader Akhilesh Yadav gave a political angle to the sacrifice of jawans who have lost their lives in recent events. While speaking to news agency ANI, Akhilesh said people have lost lives from almost every state but no one was martyred from Gujarat. “UP, Madhya Pradesh, Dakshin Bharat har jagah se shaheed huye hain, Gujarat ka koi jawan shaheed hua ho toh batao (Jawans from UP, Madhya Pradesh, South India and other parts of the country have lost their lives but tell me whether anyone has been martyred from Gujarat),” he was quoted saying by news agency ANI.

Watch Akhilesh Yadav’s comments here:

Akhilesh was in the news earlier when his father and founder of the Samajwadi Party on Sunday said that it was his mistake not to become the chief minister when the party won in 2012 assembly elections, reported news agency ANI. “Meri galti thi, humen hi banna chahiye that mukhyamantri, to aaj ye sthiti paida nahi hoti (It is my mistake, I should have become the chief minister then this situation would not have arisen),” he was quoted as saying by the agency.

Recently, Pakistan has violated ceasefire many times. Yesterday, Union Minister Hansraj Ahir appreciated Iran’s warning to Pakistan by saying, “The real image of Pakistan is coming out before the world. I appreciate Iran’s warning that it will strike at terrorist hideouts in Pakistan, which proves our point that such hideouts exist there.” His comments came at an event in the presence of Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. “We are responding to each and every provocation by Pakistan along the border. It is a weak nation,” he said.

    this is what happens when an illiterate person is given powers to speak. when a soldier dies, he dies as an Indian, he is not wrapped up in a state Flag but in Indian flag. STOP dividing my nation into bits and pieces. how many of his relatives have served in army may I ask, if he is the one commenting.

      Just see how UP remain in hands of a highly immature person.Shame to hear such parochial comments from a CM. If he is keen to hear more about UP, as why UP provides labour to the other states, its purely due to law and order and horrible state government systems

        TV media gets news byte over jawans death hence they code that such news is required for viewers. But they do not raise eye brows on death of jawans. why they do not complaint ? TV media has become quite expert in making and getting bytes daily.hence they think politics pla who ever tires to raise voice. I wish TV does understand that unless we try to achieve something such news make really no sense at all. Tv media get englightened first

          Akhilesh Yadav being the he is forgets that India's independence movement was lead by a GUJARATI by name MOHANDAS KARAMCHAND HI. Princely states were unified into ONE India by another Gujarati Sardar Patel. Had there been no independent and unified India there would not have been no Uttar Pradesh for his father to gift him the Chief ministership of independent India's most populas state. By the way, has anyone from his own family sacrificed anything for the country in recent times. How many from his own family are MPs MLAs and so on? Time this learns to keep shut.

            How many Gujaratis were ever sent to Cellular Jail? Not even one. hi was a double agent and the root cause why the British could rule over India for so long with so few Britishers. He fought for the British in South Africa while espousing "non violence" in India thereby derai the independence movement. Patel's main motive was to support his fellow baniya class, as a decentralized India would mean loss of all privileges they had ac ulated under British rule. Both hi and Patel were another Kejriwal.

                Immature person he is ! Got everything ready made from his father and now started speaking like a coward ! He should be left on the battle field with the Jawans to know from which state they belong to.

                    This is very insensitive comment but this is also true....no one from Gujarat wants to join army...as everyone is busy in running businesses.....there is no regiment in army from gujarat like maratha, a rifles, madras regiements, jat reg,raj na,garhwal,kumaon,digra,sikh etc...... so gujrat doesnt contribute men to armed forces but leaders from gujrat keep shouting to beat s, etc....

                      Such useless manipulators for their own selfish gains , should be brought under the ambit of law, the problem with Indian Democracy is that too mush of freedom has been given, specially Freedom of Speech. They should be arrested and put behind bars.

                        VERY IRRESPONSIBLE STATEMENT, SHOULD BE CONDEMNED. SHOULD BE PUNISHED. ONCE PUNISHED, OTHERS WILL ALSO HOLD THEIR TONGUE, BEFORE COMMENTING ON INTEGRITY OF THE COUNTRY.
