Former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at a rally in Ambedkarnagar, Uttar Pradesh on Sunday.

“Due to the rising prices, the ‘Ujjwala Yojana’ has become ‘bujwalla’ (a wet firecracker) yojana. And our “chief minister of Baba” is sometimes afraid of the color red. Our CM in order to reduce the price increase can change the color of the cylinder or its name, ”Yadav said.

Yadav sharpened his attack on Yogi Adityanath using the UP government’s promise to distribute laptops to students. He said that “the world has changed since then and people have computers in their pockets in the form of phones.” In an apparent reference to the CM, Yadav asked people not to “look to a leader who doesn’t know how to use a laptop” while challenging the government to reveal the numbers of the number of laptops distributed in the past four. months and a half. years, the BJP is in power.
