The BJP will win more than 350 seats in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath told News18.com in an interview, adding that he sees no one as a challenge since the work done by his government for the state and for the people gives him confidence.
Taking on Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, Adityanath said the Opposition was attempting polarisation before polls by invoking Mohammad Ali Jinnah. He added that “election tourism” by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra won’t help the Congress either. The CM further said that no one was being shielded in the Lakhimpur Kheri case.
He said the BJP will cross 350 seats (out of 403 seats), and there should be no doubt about this as his government has fulfilled every promise mentioned in the Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra in 2017. “Prior to 2017, Uttar Pradesh was considered a ‘Bimaru’ state, but now it is known for development across sectors. For the past four-and-a-half years, our government has worked for the betterment of the state and its 24 crore citizens. The work we have done for our state and our people is what gives us confidence. We have ensured the welfare of farmers, women and the poorest of the poor in the state. In 2017 itself, we had waived farm loans worth Rs 36,000 crore via the waiver scheme, which benefitted around 21 million farmers. UP will further play a pivotal role in making India a global economic superpower”, he said.
