Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the Samajwadi Party, declared on Sunday that the BJP will be "defeated" in all 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh in the impending 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the Samajwadi Party, declared on Sunday that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be “defeated” in all 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh in the impending 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
He accused the BJP of “not fulfilling” the pledges made before the polls.
Addressing a press conference here in Kolkata, the SP chief said, “We will defeat BJP on all 80 seats in UP. They do make promises when they need votes. The cost of living and unemployment has increased. They (BJP) have not fulfilled any promise that they made before the elections”.
Earlier in the day, issuing a piece of advice to Congress, Yadav said, “BJP should be defeated in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Congress and several other parties should finalise their role”.
“Congress should decide its role regarding elections. CMs of many states are trying for a coalition that will work together.Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is trying, Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin is trying, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee are also there. The name will be discussed later for the coalition,” Yadav told ANI.
About the third front for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Yadav stated that the major issue is the ordinary man’s difficulties such as unemployment and inflation.
“For 2024, you may call it the third front or an alliance, but this is not the question. The main issue is inflation. The youth are roaming around without jobs. The farmers’ lives have been destroyed. They (BJP) is showing dreams…but when will the youth get jobs?” he said.
The SP head was addressing following the conclusion of the party’s two-day national executive conference in Kolkata.
At the meeting, the party addressed policies and plans for the upcoming elections in three Hindi states, as well as the Lok Sabha elections next year.
Akhilesh Yadav was joined at the meeting by party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav, MP Jaya Bachchan, state unit chiefs from 20 states, and numerous other figures.
Significantly, the national executive conference of the Samajwadi Party was conducted in Kolkata after an 11-year hiatus.
