Allahabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Monday mounted a blistering attack on Samajwadi Party as he appealed the public to vote the BJP-led NDA to power in Uttar Pradesh.

"It is from Uttar Pradesh that today our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is being able to take our country forward through development. The Bharatiya Janata Party will get full majority in state assembly election in 2017 and will make government," Amit Shah said.

Shah was addressing a rally at Allahabad today when he took on Samajwadi Party government on Kairana mass exodus.

 

"The migration happening in Kairana due to violence is a matter of serious concern. There is an atmosphere of violence. The lack of development and the lack of governance in the biggest state of India that is Uttar Pradesh is becoming a matter of serious concern," Shah said.

"Uttar Pradesh should not take Kairana exodus incident lightly. Kairana incident is not an ordinary event but a very serious issue. If you want to avoid such incidents, you need to remove the Samajwadi Party government and bring BJP-NDA to power in the state," he added.

BJP legislator and Kairana MP Hukum Singh had last week claimed that over 300 Hindu families have moved out of the Muslim dominated Kairana following multiple reported attacks and charges of extortion.

Shah also accused the Samajwadi Party and Mayawati-led Bahujan Samajwadi Party of indulging in caste politics and not letting the Modi government to function.

"BSP, SP as well as Congress do not want the Modi government to function. I urge the people here to end the cycle of BSP-SP in Uttar Pradesh. Akhilesh Yadav government has failed on all fronts. Only BJP has capibilities to defeat Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh," Shah asserted.

With the entire party leadership, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in attendance, Shah also targeted the Congress, saying it is “increasingly weakening” and its “atrophy is growing at an alarming pace due to its policy of repeatedly obstructing the government’s path to development” in the last two years.
