Hitting out at the BJP for terming his party's rule in Uttar Pradesh as "gunda raj", Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said that "let us know if a single FIR has been filed against us but show us FIR copies registered against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath."
"They blamed us for "gunda raj" (hooliganism) in Uttar Pradesh. I want to say let us know if a single FIR has been filed against us. But also show us FIR copies registered against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath," Akhilesh Yadav said while addressing an election rally.
"He has been charged under several sections. I cannot even count them and you cannot even imagine what kind of sections he was charged under," he added.
The Samajwadi Party chief and former chief minister alleged Prime Minister Narendra Modi cancelled the nomination of his party candidate Tej Bahadur Yadav from Varanasi. "The government claims that it wants to end terrorism but it was afraid of a jawan."
Continuing his tirade against the BJP, Akhilesh Yadav said, "What are the BJP people bringing on roads? It is bulls. And bulls are hurting the people on roads. If a bull hurts anyone, what charges the police will impose on them? Will they register an FIR against a bull?"
The Samajwadi Party chief said if a case will be filed against any bull if it hurts anyone and demanded that the FIR should be registered against Mr Adityanath instead. He also claimed that seven people died in Lucknow because of the bulls.
Polling for 80 parliamentary seats in Uttar Pradesh is being held in all seven phases. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
