“On the lines of 1942 August Kranti movement during the freedom struggle, Samajwadi Party through ideological movement in 2022 is going to realise the dream of the freedom struggle. We should not leave any stone unturned for 2022. The ‘udghosh’ (clarion call) will be ‘samajwadi sarkaar kaa kaam, janata ke naam’ (SP govt work dedicated to people),” Akhilesh said in a 12-page communication, circulated among party workers.
“Socialists played a leading role in August Kranti and JP Movement. Today, the Samajwadis (socialists) will unite to play their role for defending the values of the Constitution,” the former CM said.
Akhilesh also accused the ruling BJP of embarking upon a destructive path and said that “it is a clash of ideologies”.
“On one side, there is a democracy, while on the other side, there is a mentality to show that one is above all. We have to decide, where we have to go,” he said.
Akhilesh Yadav headed the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh from March 2012 to March 2017. Ahead of the 2017 assembly polls, the SP had forged an alliance with the Congress. The alliance, however, won just 54 seats in the 403-member House.
