Akhilesh claims will scipt history by retaining power through development

Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav asserted on Saturday that he will script history by retaining power on his development plank and took a jibe at BJP over note ban, saying those who put the people to hardships could be running away from polls. “Everyone is waiting for the poll dates and if there is anyone who is waiting the most for elections, it is me… I am ready for elections ever since I flagged off the Lucknow metro (trial run),” he said while addressing the police officials at IPS week here.

“Though people say that governments are never repeated in Uttar Pradesh, ever since I have started working, I have been making history in all spheres and I’m confident that it will be made this time and I will be sitting along with you all once again, formulating future strategies,” Yadav said.

In an apparent reference to the Centre’s demonetization move and the problems faced by people after it, the chief minister said, “those who have put the people to hardships could be running away from elections” and that he had been forced to act against police officials who had to bear the brunt for the wrongs of others. Yadav had suspended the concerned SP and SHO after a video clip showing a policeman baton charging people standing in queue outside a bank in Fatehpur district went viral on social media.
