Phones of SP leaders tapped by Yogi govt: Akhilesh Yadav

Lucknow, December 20 (KMS) The Samajwadi Party President, Akhilesh Yadav has said that phones of his party leaders were tapped by Yogi Govt and the “Chief Minister listens to the recordings every evening”.

Akhilesh Yadav in press conference in Lucknow said that four of his close associates were raided by Income Tax officials in Uttar Pradesh and these raids were an indication that the BJP was going to lose the election.

He said that all landline numbers of his office were also being tapped by the BJP Yogi government. He said that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was “unupoyogi” (unsuitable/useless) – a rejoinder to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement in which he had said that ‘UPYogi’ is equal to ‘upyogi’ (suitable).

Akhilesh further said that the tactics of the BJP will increase as the elections get closer.

“Abhi to Income Tax Department aaya hai, Enforcement Directorate aayega, CBI aayega (Right now, now the tax department has come… the Enforcement Directorate will and the CBI will join soon). ut the cycle (the Samajwadi Party’s poll symbol) will not stop,” Akhilesh added.

The SP leader said that the BJP had adopted similar tricks in West Bengal during the elections earlier this year and the results were there for all to see.
