BJP secretary general in charge of Mainpuri Lok Sabha bypoll Ashwani Tyagi claimed on Wednesday that for the first time the entire “Saifai family” has been forced to knock on voters’ doors here for fear of losing the seat.
Attacking SP chief Akhlesh Yadav’s tenure as prime minister, Tyagi told PTI that the state had turned into a big industry of kidnapping, kidnapping, corruption, extortion and land grabbing and that the future of the young generation had also been spoiled.
The bypoll on the Mainpuri seat that was released after the death of SP founder Mulayam Singh Yadav is scheduled for December 5. Yadav’s daughter-in-law Dimple Yadav has been hired by the SP and the BJP has nominated Raghuraj Shakya for the seat which is considered the stronghold of the Samajwadi party.
Saifai is the home village of Mulayam Singh Yadav in Etawah District, which is also part of Mainpuri parliamentary constituency.
Tyagi, who is camped here along with State Minister of Tourism and Culture Jaivir Singh to lead and oversee the election, said it is the first time in political history that the entire “Saifai family” is campaigning door-to-door.
Yogi Adityanath’s government has dealt with the criminals with an iron hand and has ensured honor and safety for all citizens across the state without discrimination of caste, class or religion, Tyagi said.
Women’s safety was a major concern at the time, as incidents of gang rape involving underage girls and women were common, Tyagi said.
The BJP government paid special attention to women’s safety and now they feel safe moving around late at night, Tyagi said.
Girls go to school in a safe atmosphere and now their parents never have to worry about their safe return, he said.
Tyagi also claimed that the BJP governments in the center and in the state led by Narendra Modi and Adityanath respectively have given various schemes and programs to help improve the economic and social life of the poor and the downtrodden.
To ensure overall development, the state government led by Adityanath has floated plans to realize the ambitious trillion-dollar economy by establishing major industries.
He claimed that as law and order in the state has become a model for other states to follow, big industrial houses have preferred Uttar Pradesh as a safe destination to set up their industries here which will also create job opportunities for the young generation.
He said major foreign industrialists at the initiative of the prime minister have also favored UP as a safe place to invest to set up and promote their industries in the state.
