Speaking at an event organised by ABP News, former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav took a jibe at the three years of Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led NDA government at the Centre and thereafter also targetted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He said, “In 3 years Rs 15 lakh hasn’t reached into people’s accounts, loans of farmers have not been waived off, rivers are yet not cleaned and the government has done no developmental work on AIIMS and airports.”
Akhilesh thereafter took on the incumbent Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh and said, “I never knew officers wielded brooms so well. Now the question is how much filth have they cleared so far.”
When asked about what his father Mulayam Singh Yadav had whispered in PM Modi’s ear during the swearing in ceremony of Adityanath government, Akhilesh again replied, “Netaji said, Beware! He is my son.”

Just ahead of the crucial Assembly polls in UP earlier this year, Akhilesh stepped into a coup after replacing his father Mulayam Singh as president. However, the former CM had said that he did so to safeguard the SP from ill forces who were trying to break the party. He had promised to return back the president post back to Mulayam after the elections, but is yet to do so.
Recently, during the UP Assembly elections, a CAG report alleged that the Yadav-led Samajwadi Party (SP) government had spent Rs 15.06 crore on functions to distribute cheques worth Rs 20.58 crore to beneficiaries of its flagship unemployment allowance scheme, according to Indian Express report.
The report highlighted that the SP government had spent Rs 8.07 crore in seating, refreshments and other arrangements and remaining Rs 6.99 crore on transportation. The CAG report further informed that an additional Rs 15.06 cr was spent in organising functions of ‘Berozgari Bhatta Yojna’ in as many as 69 districts though the scheme clearly says that unemployment allowance has to be directly credited into beneficiaries’ bank accounts.
