Lucknow:

Uttar Pradesh BJP president Swatantra Dev Singh on Saturday attacked Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, saying he suffers from a "seasonal disease" due to which he claims as his every work done by the ruling party.

The BJP leader said those who "built haj houses" worth hundreds of crores are now claiming that the decision to build the Kashi Vishwanath corridor was theirs.

"The SP chief is suffering from some seasonal disease due to which he is describing every work of the government as his own work and now he thinks that the Kashi Vishwanath corridor is also built by him," Singh said.

"He has forgotten that he only cut the ribbon of haj houses," Singh said in a statement. He compared the Yadav-led previous government with Mahmud Ghaznavi and Muhammad Ghori, saying it "looted the country".

He alleged that police guarded temple during the SP regime to ensure that their "bells don't ring".

"People have not forgotten how they had to make requests for setting up Durga puja and Ram Lila pandals before 2017," the BJP leader claimed.

He said today flowers are being showered on the Kanwar Yatra and the Kumbh is praised by the world.

The grand celebrations of Deepotsav, Dev Deepawali, Holi and Krishna Janmotsav are the hallmarks of Uttar Pradesh, he said.
