Addressing a public gathering at Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh, UP's Former Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party (SP) Chief Akhilesh Yadav claimed that democracy would end if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will retain power in 2019. He said the 2019 Lok Sabha elections a last opportunity to save democracy.
Yadav added, that Narendra Modi-led Centre was working against benefits of Dalits and the country was being pushed into the fire of casteism and communalism.
The Former Chief Minister also attacked the government over the increasing fuel prices stating that the public will teach BJP a lesson in 2019 Lok Sabha elections
“The Modi govt has not fulfilled its promises and failed on all fronts. People who introduced demonetisation and GST are the ones blocking the development of the country. General elections are nearing and people are also gearing up to give a befitting reply to this government.” Akhilesh was quoted in a news report.
On the other hand, Union Minister and senior BJP leader Harsh Vardhan said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was politically invincible and there was no one to throw a challenge to him in next year’s general elections.
“There is no one who can beat Narendra Modi… I do not think there is any challenge to him in 2019 (elections),” Union Minister said.
Modi-led central government is also facing attack by the opposition over the depreciating rupee against the dollar, soaring fuel prices and the Vijay Mallya case.
