On Saturday, Amit Shah kicked of UP polls campaign by taking a dig at infighting in the Mulayam Singh Yadav family and targeted ruling Samajwadi Party as well as BSP, saying neither party is bothered about development of the state.
Addressing â€˜Parivartan rallyâ€™ (rally for change) in Saharanpur in western UP, he said the state has lagged behind in development because of SP and BSP rule and that only a BJP government with full majority can bring it back on track.
â€œWhile on one hand, it is the nephew (Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav) who is abusing the uncle (SP state unit president Shivpal Yadav), on the other Behenji (BSP supremo Mayawati) is abusing both of them...No one is concerned about the development of the state,â€ Shah said.
â€œThe state has lagged behind a lot...SP and BSP cannot improve the situation here and it will be only the BJP government with full majority which can bring the state back on tracks,â€ he said.
