UP assembly elections: BJP is conspiring to end govt job quota, says Akhilesh Yadav | India News – Times of India

LUCKNOW: Describing the 2022 assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh as a historic opportunity for the deprived and the jobless to protect Indian Constitution and avail the right enshrined therein, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said the BJP is conspiring to end reservation in government jobs. This move of the BJP would hit youths aspiring for government jobs, he said.
“The growing fear of losing the elections is taking its toll on the ruling BJP. With defeat imminent in the elections, the party has now become more intolerant and aggressive. Attempts to hatch conspiracies and defame the opposition are growing. But the people have seen through this falsehood and are only coming out in support of the opposition parties in growing numbers,” the former UP CM said.
Akhilesh said that while addressing public meetings CM Yogi Adityanath claims that his government has given jobs to youths. But he conveniently overlooks the fact that thousands of young boys and girls are being manhandled for demanding jobs and protesting against anomalies in recruitment of teachers for 69,000 vacancies.
“Dalits and Backward Class candidates have been deprived of their reservation rights in recruitment for 68,500 and 69,000 vacancies that have been advertised 2018 onwards,” he said.
The SP national president said the CM keeps on making statements on providing jobs quoting bogus statistics and does not pay attention to thousands of jobless youth holding demonstrations outside the Vidhan Bhawan and marching towards CM’s official residence against the government apathy towards their demands. The government should put out hoardings of those who have been given jobs.
Citing news photographs in which a police officer is seen holding a youth by his neck and dragging him away from the protest site, Akhilesh said influenced by the ‘encounter culture’ of the present government, some policemen have lost human touch. The jobless youth will give such cops and the government a befitting reply in elections.
‘BJP foundation is based on falsehood’
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said the BJP has claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of Lakhwad multi-purpose project in Uttarakhand on Thursday.
“The foundation of the BJP government is based on falsehood. The foundation stone of the same project was laid way back in 1978 by then chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Ram Naresh Yadav and the event was attended by then Ghaziabad MLA Rajendra Chaudhary who is now national secretary of the SP. The BJP has nothing new of its own to offer to people. This is yet another old project that the BJP has claimed as its own,” Akhilesh said in a statement issued on Thursday.
