Union Home Secretary Amit Shah said on Friday that the biggest achievement of Yogi Adityanath’s government was the eradication of the Uttar Pradesh mafia. Speaking to party workers at the launch of the BJP’s membership campaign, Shah said the state has shown remarkable improvement across the board.
“But we still need five years to make it the number one state. In addition, the 2022 outcome will also lay the groundwork for Modi’s return in 2024,” he said.
Shah said the BJP gave the state a new district identity. “This is the land of Lord Ram, Mahadev, Krishna, Kabir, Buddha, Suheldev and Madan Mohan Malviya and it is now on the road to development. Development is not for a family or a caste but for all – in especially the poorest of the poor, ”he said.
Addressing Samajwadi party chairman Akhilesh Yadav, Shah said: “Those who have been at home for five years now have new clothes sewn on and claim to come back to power. I want to ask Akhilesh Babu how many days has it been he spent overseas in those years. Where was he when UP faced Covid and then the floods? These are the people who ran their government for their family and their caste. Yogi Adityanath’s government was for everyone . “
During the launch of the membership campaign, Amit Shah said that the membership target was four crores and that the “Mera Parivar-BJP Parivar” campaign would run from October 29 to December 31. He said party workers should deploy and reach every home.
“Our manifesto will be made according to the aspirations of the people and the workers. We have fulfilled 90 percent of the promises made in our manifesto for 2017. SP and BSP had destroyed this state but Yogi Adityanath did a great job in putting things on the rails, ”he said.
In the 2017 Assembly elections, the BJP won 312 Assembly seats and secured 39.67% of the vote in the 403-member Assembly elections. The Samajwadi Party (SP) won 47 seats, BSP won 19 while Congress won seven. Uttar Pradesh is expected to go to the polls next year.
