Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah took a dig at UP CM Akhilesh Yadav for criticising PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ by calling the UP CM incapable of understanding PM’s radio address, ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
While addressing a rally at Jaunpur, Shah said,” Akhilesh Yadav says that he does not understand the Prime Minister’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’. On this I would say that to understand ‘ Mann Ki Baat’, he needs to have sensible mind and understanding.”
Earlier today, while addressing the media in a press conference, the UP CM targeted the PM over his monthly radio address ‘Mann Ki Baat’ saying that the people of Uttar Pradesh are waiting to hear some ‘Kaam ki baat’ also from the Prime Minister.
Addressing the ongoing war of words between the two in the light of PM’s ‘religious-discrimination’ claim over electricity supply, the incumbent CM challenged the Prime Minister for a debate on the issue too.
Uttar Pradesh will go to the fifth phase of Assembly elections on Monday. The districts going for polls include Balrampur, Gonda, Faizabad, Ambedkar Nagar, Bahraich, Shravasti, Siddharth Nagar, Basti, Sultanpur. Rahul Gandhi’s constituency Amethi will also be voting tomorrow.
