A Kurmi by caste, Mr. Verma is a second-time MLA. She was also a member of UP’s Legislative Council from 2010 to 2012 Elated over the induction of sitting BJP MLA from the Nanpara assembly seat in Bahraich district, Yadav asserted that he is on his way to form government in Uttar Pradesh.
"The way to Ram Rajya is through the path of Samajwad (socialism). The day ‘Samajwad’ is established, the “Ram Rajya” will be set up in the state,” the SP president said.
He went on to add, “Lord Sri Krishna comes to my dreams every night to tell me that our government is coming up (in UP)." He also claimed that the Yogi Adityanath government has "failed" in the state.
Alluding to a galaxy of BJP leaders doing the poll campaign in UP, Mr. Yadav referred to the infamous practice of some students’ guardians in some states, including UP and Bihar, descending on their examination centres to help their wards resort to unfair means.
And then dubbing Mr. Adityanath as having failed as CM, Mr. Yadav likened the BJP leaders’ poll efforts to those of students’ guardians to help a "failed" Adityanath win the UP polls.
Reacting to the BJP allegation of his party having several criminals and gangsters, Mr. Yadav retorted, “It is the allegation of a party which made a man facing several heinous criminal cases the UP chief minister.” "I wonder if the BJP has bought a washing machine to cleanse all its criminals and mafia elements,” he wryly said.
“There were many veteran leaders in the BJP who strengthened the party for years with their blood and sweat. Even they say at times that it was they who sweated it out for the party but don’t know where did Adityanath come from and was forced upon them," Mr. Yadav said.
On a question on Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s statement that he would contest the upcoming assembly elections from wherever his party wants, Mr. Yadav said irrespective of where he fights from, he would face grilling from the people on his “failed” promises, including the doubling of farmers’ income.
To a question on his own seat for contesting the assembly polls, Mr. Yadav said his party will take a call on this.
