“Election Commission will make sure that fair elections are conducted," Akhilesh Yadav states. Taking a shot at the BJP, the SP chief claimed that the party had done nothing to help Mainpuri develop. "They have done no work in the Mainpuri area, no road has been constructed, no bridge has not been built, health services have not been improved, they could not even tell the problems faced by the farmers. The budget of Sainik School has been cut, and the budget of the electricity department has also been cut," he quotes.
The SP chief expressed confidence that the people of Mainpuri would re-elect the Samajwadi Party and that Mulayam Singh Yadav's work would be visible. "Netaji`s work is visible wherever I`ve gone. I got the opportunity to meet Netaji`s people and those who had direct contact with Netaji," he said.

UP CM attacks Samajwadi Party
Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, said that 'Samajwad' is no longer the same as it was founded by Jayaprakash Narayan or Ram Manohar Lohia, but now it has new faces such as 'Lathait Samajwad,' 'Poonji,' and 'Awsarwadi Samajwad,' and they are all like a family. In a direct attack on the Samajwadi Party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, CM Yogi states, "This is not the socialism of JP and Lohia. `Chacha` Shivpal writes about Lohia, but he does not know what he is writing. Different brands of socialism are visible in one family. "Jiski laathi usi ki bhains," or "lathait samajwad," is Shivpal`s brand of socialism."
"The socialism of Ramgopal Yadav was replaced by capitalism. He and his disciples in the SP government did not think twice about seizing any land that was visible from Noida to Firozabad. On the other hand, Akhilesh`s socialism is opportunistic," UP CM said holding a public meeting for the BJP candidate Raghuraj Singh Shakya.
