Akhilesh hails voters for saving nation from dictatorship

New Delhi, July 2 (UNI) Samajwadi Party president and Kannauj MP Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday said in Lok Sabha that the recent parliamentary election results are a moral victory for the INDI alliance and this was possible due to the honest and wise voters who prevented the country from coming under a “dictatorship”.

Addressing the House during the discussion on Motion of Thanks on President’s Address, Akhilesh Yadav said, “People have lost faith in those who turn everything into ‘Jumlas’ (rhetoric) and this is not a majority government, it is surviving with help of alliance partners.

Again raising doubts over reliability of electronic voting machines (EVM), the Kannauj MP said, “I did not trust EVMs yesterday and I do not trust them today. The EVM issue is not over yet. Until they are removed we Samajwadi (socialists) will remain firm on it.”

EVMs will be discontinued in elections whenever the INDIA bloc government is formed, he said.

He said that the party was in favour of caste census and social justice was not possible without the caste census.

Yadav also mentioned about Ayodhya and said, “The victory of Ayodhya is the victory of the democratic understanding of the mature voters of India.”

He attacked the government for failing to address the issue of unemployment, inflation and said that the Agniveer scheme would also be scrapped once he INDIA bloc comes to power.

On paper leaks, Yadav said that the only achievement of NDA government in the last 10 years was that an education mafia was born.

The SP chief also targeted the government over the Old Pension Scheme (OPS) and said that it not mentioned in the speech. OPS should be implemented so that the government employees can have a future. People of the weaver community are living in every corner of the country but they are not getting the facilities that they should get from this government.

Hitting out at the government on farmers issue, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said “leave aside MSP, the NDA government even failed to build a market for the farmers”.
