BJP leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain attacked Congress for targetting Centre over violence erupted in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district and said the state’s people understand the politics of the Opposition party and will vote against it in the upcoming Assembly polls,
Talking to ANI, Bihar Minister of Industries Hussain said, “The people of UP understand the politics Congress is doing on Lakhimpur Kheri incident. Congress will get the answer to these acts in the upcoming UP Assembly elections.”
He pointed towards an incident which occurred recently when a backward community person was beaten in Rajasthan. “Congress has nothing to say on this issue. People understand the policies of Congress very well. The party will earn zero Assembly setas in the UP polls,” he added.
Uttar Pradesh’s 403 assembly constituencies are due for elections early next year. The saffron party had stormed back to power in the state in the Assembly elections in 2017. BJP has 309 legislators in the 403 member Uttar Pradesh Assembly, while the major parties such as Samajwadi Party has 49, Bahujan Samaj Party has 18, and Congress has 7.
While speaking on the concerns raised by several leaders across the country on power crisis, Shahnawaz Hussain said, “Our power minister has clarified that these are baseless claims and there is no need to create any panic amongst people across the country.”
