Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday attacked the BJP government for “selling everything”, saying a day may come, “when the government will be sold to a company, and it will work through outsourcing”.
He also demanded a comparison of the BJP-led government with the East India Company.
“The BJP government at the center is selling everything. You must know that the British came to India to trade. The East India Company used to trade in 2-3 things (in the beginning), but their business gradually grew and the English one passed the law under which the East India Company itself became the government,” he told a rally in Saharanpur.
“The BJP is selling one thing after another. There may come a day, when the government will be sold to a company, and the government will work through outsourcing. When everything is sold, then the rights, which we have got in the constitution ., will also be snatched away,” he said.
He told the upcoming 2022 UP assembly elections related to the destiny of the country. “It will decide the future of youth and farmers,” Yadav said.
He said, “If the country is to be saved, the BJP has to be defeated. We had an alliance with the BSP to stop the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Whatever agreement we made, we did it, but the BJP got more seats. Answer State.
“If the BJP had lost in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Three Black Farms Act would not have been implemented,” Yadav said.
Intensifying his attack, the SP chief said, “Farmers are called ‘mawali’ (people indulging in violence for no reason), and they can be called terrorists. The BJP may have insulted the farmers. But the farmers did not agree, and they have resolved that the protest will continue until the Black Farm Act is withdrawn.”
Referring to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr. Yadav said, “When the public needed the government the most, it left them orphans. In Lakhimpur Kheri, farmers were crushed by a vehicle. When SP protested, a case was registered. Government people can do anything, so we need to be alert.”
Attacking Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, he said, “People who change names, people will change them in elections.”
