Lucknow, September 19 (KMS): Samajwadi Party (SP) President Akhilesh Yadav has said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Uttar Pradesh does not want to face the opposition as it has failed on all fronts.
Akhilesh Yadav said this after being prevented from marching towards the Assembly with his party MLAs.
He said, “What type of a government is this which is not allowing MLAs and former ministers to reach the house? After all, we wanted to raise the issues related to the public.” “Why does the government not want to face the opposition? It does not want to face the opposition as the government has failed on all fronts,” he added.
Earlier, SP MLAs led by Akhilesh Yadav attempted to march towards the Vidhan Bhawan from the party office to raise the issues of price rise, unemployment, crime against women and law and order situation in the state. However, they were prevented from marching at Bandariya Bagh crossing.
The MLAs insisted on marching ahead but they failed to do so as the road was barricaded.
After this the MLAs staged a protest on the road and conducted the proceedings of the House by paying tributes to former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Arvind Giri, who had passed away recently.
After calling off the protest, Akhilesh Yadav said corruption is rampant in the present government.
