Akhilesh launches hoarding war against BJP campaign

In an apparent bid to what the Samajwadi Party said ‘expose the lies’ of the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has launched a hoarding war against the saffron party leader.

A large number of hoardings have come up in Lucknow comparing the 12 year stint of Modi in Gujarat and 22 month rule of Akhilesh Yadav in UP in terms of development and achievements in different fields.

The hoardings titled ‘Mirage of development and the reality’ seek to show that Modi has been exaggerating the developments in Gujarat in a bid to drive home the message that he was capable of ushering in the same in the country as well as prime minister.

“What we have done in 22 months, Modi has not been able to achieve in 12 years,” the hoardings claim. They also claimed that the UP government believed in inclusive growth, an apparent reference to alleged sidelining of Muslims in Gujarat.

Modi and the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav have, off late, been involved in a war of words over development in Gujarat and UP. Mulayam had accused Modi of spreading misinformation about UP.

Akhilesh had also asked Modi to look at the statistics before saying anything about UP. “Those, who say that UP has lagged behind in development, should see the statistics before saying so,” Akhilesh had said recently. 

Modi had been saying in his rallies that UP had been ruined by the Samajwadi Party. “Such people do not know about UP. They should know that UP tops in production of milk and wheat,” Akhilesh had countered and also alleged that many gas based power plants in Gujarat had closed and asked Modi to focus on his state.

Modi had claimed that Gujarat had taken rapid strides toward development while UP had lagged behind. “Mulayam lacks capabilities to turn UP into Gujarat. It requires efficiency and guts,” he had said.
