He said this while addressing a programme in favour of a party candidate in the Sadarpur area of Ghaziabad.

He said no stone will be left unturned for the progress of farmers and labourers if the SP-RLD alliance comes to power in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.

There will be no place for communal politics, Chaudhary said as he alleged that the is trying to divide Hindus and Muslims.

He also alleged that the government failed to provide transport facility to the workers, who had to travel hundreds of miles to reach their homes during the coronavirus lockdown.
