Akhilesh has lost confidence of people of UP & his family: BJP

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

today trained its guns on Chief Minister saying he has not only "lost confidence" of people of but his family too which recognises his "incompetence" and that SP is a sinking ship.

Lapping up supremo Yadav's comments that party's Chief Ministerial candidate will be decided by newly-elected legislators, national secretary Shrikant Sharma said this proves that he has no "faith left" in his son and that he "cheated" the public during last polls after they elected his government with hopes of change.

"Yadav's remarks are an indication that Samajwadi Party's ship is sinking and one that recognises Akhilesh Yadav's incompetence, as he has failed on all fronts and thus lost the confidence of the people of the state.

"By making chief minister in 2012, cheated the public that elected to power with hopes of seeing a change in the state that was riddled with corruption, nepotism and anarchy. Akhilesh has only added to the woes of the people in the state," he said.

Sharma said Mulayam's assertion is a clear indication of the fact that he has himself "rejected" the government led by Akhilesh Yadav, which the people of the state have already rejected.

He claimed that the remarks hold no significance as the people will not elect legislators anymore and the question of electing a chief minister would not arise.

"has failed on all fronts, be it providing power or water to the people or providing an administration of law and order. People are very upset with Akhilesh, who is also the Home Minister, due to the deteriorating law and order and anarchy in the state. That is why people have rejected him and 2017 polls will be a mere formality," he said.

Sharma said has suffered badly in the last many years after they tried Congress, BSP and SP, all of whom failed them in resolving their problems.

"Resultantly the state suffered immensely and situation turned from bad to worse. The benefits of central schemes are not reaching the masses and public is very angry," he said.

Samajwadi Party supremo had said earlier that the elected MLAs of the party and the parliamentary board would take a final call on the next Chief Minister after the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
