Modi seeks account of SP's 5-yr regime
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday again trained his guns on the Congress-SP alliance, and asked Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to give an account of his five-year rule in the state.

“The Samajwadi Party has gone against the principles of socialist ideologue Ram Manohar Lohia, who always opposed the Congress, and has embraced it,” Modi said, addressing an election meeting at Lakhimpur-Kheri.

He said Akhilesh should tell the people of the state what he has done for them during his five-year tenure.

“He (Akhilesh) has nothing to show... he has failed on every front,” Modi said.

“Uttar Pradesh has been ruined by corruption... the youths have been migrating to other cities in serach of jobs,” the prime minister said.

Modi also took potshots at the chief minister for inaugurating “incomplete” projects.

“Akhilesh inaugurated projects, which were not even complete... governments are not run by simply cutting ribbons,” he said.

The prime minister said Akhilesh had promised to investigate the scams that had taken place during BSP supremo Mayawati’s regime,  but failed to deliver on his promise.

Modi said only the BJP could ensure overall development of the state, and give a government that cared for every section of the society.
