New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday attacked Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for giving suggestions to NDA government on PoK saying he should concentrate on providing a good governance in Uttar Pradesh and resolve public problems instead.
The party also hit out at Yadav for befooling the people of the state who had elected his party after being fed up with Mayawati's misgovernance and accused him of betrayal.
"The NDA is a strong government at the Centre. It wishes to maintain good ties with neighbours and knows how to deal with them. Mulayam Singh should not bother about the Centre as the country's boundaries are fully protected.
"He should concentrate on providing good governance in Uttar Pradesh instead and resolve the problems of the people," BJP Secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
According to media reports Yadav said yesterday that he is ready to garland Prime Minister Narendra Modi if the latter "recovers" the Indian land in possession of China and Pakistan.
Mulayam, while addressing an election meeting at Ramleela ground in Etawah's Jaswant Nagar ahead of the bypoll on Mainpuri seat, has said, "I will not only congratulate Modi but also garland and welcome him if he recovers Indian territory in possession of Pakistan and China."
Sharma accused Yadav of playing with the sentiments of the people of Uttar Pradesh by not coming to their aid in resolving their issues.
He said people of the state are reeling under power shortage, women do not consider themselves safe, farmers are without water, youth without jobs and criminals are moving freely in the state.
Sharma said instead of helping the people who elected him, Yadav is resorting to vote bank politics and asked him to introspect instead.
"If you (Yadav) have some conscience left, you should stop giving unnecessary statements and provide better governance to help the country and the state," he said.
