SP-BSP like to loot in the dark: Yogi Adityanath

Ballia: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) by calling them ‘thieves’ who looted the state treasury. “SP and BSP have ensured that there’s no electricity in Ballia because they are thieves and it is convenient for them to loot in dark,” Adityanath said while addressing an election rally here.

Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for conducting an air strike deep in Pakistan on April 27, he said, “With the Balakot strike, PM Modi has shown how to safeguard our nation.” “The terrorists know that PM Modi will find them and will retaliate efficiently if they attack. Even if they’ll go to Pakistan, PM Modi will not spare them. Only PM Modi can do it and the people have faith in it,” he added.

While claiming that no encounters or attacks happened in Uttar Pradesh in the past five years, he said, “Earlier, there were so many terror attacks and encounters that happened in various parts of Uttar Pradesh, but no such incident happened in the past five years.” Further, he said that whatever PM Modi has given, he didn’t look into anyone’s caste, religion or creed as his motto is “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas. “It is because of PM Modi that our country’s face has changed globally in just five years,” he added.
