Akhilesh Yadav, the national head of the Samajwadi Party, accused the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections of being rigged on Monday.
The film “The Kashmir Files,” according to the former chief minister, was published at this time so that there would be no debate about the election violations.
In Azamgarh, where his party won all ten assembly seats, Akhilesh Yadav spoke to the media. The SP chief went on a thanksgiving tour in Azamgarh.
He urged that the profits from the tax exemption on “The Kashmir Files” be used to help displaced Kashmiris. He recommended forming a committee of 25 persons made up of displaced Kashmiris, including Pandits, to help with this.
According to him, the committee should decide how the money raised from the tax on “The Kashmir Files” should be spent.
In response to allegations of anomalies in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Akhilesh Yadav stated that the counting of ballots was halted in numerous locations across the state. For example, he stated that the Samajwadi Party candidate in Varanasi South was ahead until the 20th round of counting.
However, counting was halted, and after some time, it was announced that the Samajwadi Party candidate had lost the poll, according to Akhilesh Yadav.
Minister Neelkanth Tiwari of the BJP won the Varanasi South seat. Kishan Dixit of the SP was defeated.
The next MLC election, according to Akhilesh Yadav, would be a major challenge. On April 9, voters will choose 36 members of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council from 35 local bodies.
In response to a query, he stated that he would not attend the swearing-in ceremony for Yogi Adityanath’s government 2.0 because he would not be invited. He stated that even if he is invited, he will not go.
The chairman of the Samajwadi Party went after the Bahujan Samaj Party, which only got one seat in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
He claimed there was a rumour that the BSP had secretly allied with the BJP. He stated that now is not the time for a debate on electronic voting machines.
Akhilesh Yadav expressed gratitude to the people of Azamgarh. Despite the BJP’s efforts to defeat the SP, he claimed the assembly election outcome in the area was historic.
“We may not have established a government, but we are not vanquished.” “The number of seats held by the SP has grown, as has the vote percentage,” he stated.
In numerous other districts of eastern Uttar Pradesh, the SP also fared well. With its ally SBSP, it won four out of seven assembly seats in Ballia, three out of four in Mau, and all seven in Ghazipur.
“SP head Akhilesh Yadav is levelling bogus claims to cover his party’s defeat in the assembly elections,” Kashi area BJP spokesman Navratan Rathi stated in response to Akhilesh Yadav’s statements. The SP head has lodged a bogus charge against EVMs (over 24 hours) before the counting. The people of Uttar Pradesh understood everything and voted against the SP. The people of the state praised the BJP for continuing to fight for the state’s development while adhering to the concept of “sabka saath, sabka vikas.”
He went on to say that throughout the elections, all of the norms and procedures were observed.
