Launching a scathing attack on the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress, the constituents of the opposition’s INDIA bloc, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday said that whenever they come together, there is disaster (anarth).
“Yeh Congress aur SP jab bhi milti hai to anarth hi karti hain (whenever Congress and SP come together, they do disaster only,” said Adityanath.
“They had set up a sugar factory in Dhuriyapar area where not a single stem of sugarcane is produced. The mill was not operated for even a day. Guess what injustice they had done to the people of the state? No person was given a job there, and the factory was shut down like scrap,” said Adityanath addressing a gathering in Gorakhpur.
The Congress and the SP came together last in UP in the 2017 Assembly elections, but their alliance failed to win and Akhilesh Yadav-led SP lost power to the BJP in the state.
Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the SP and the Congress are together again as part of the INDIA bloc.
