UP Election 2022: Akhilesh kickstarts 'Vijay' yatra, BJP slams '5-star' rath

Oct 12, 2021 20:18 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Seeking to galvanise public support ahead of Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav started his 'Vijay' yatra from Kanpur on Tuesday.

"The 'Samajwadi Vijay Yatra' yatra aims to make people aware about the corrupt, autocratic and suppressive policies of the BJP government and to establish real democracy," the party said in a statement on Monday.

Yadav will travel in a Mercedes bus, which has been turned into a 'rath'. It bears posters of Akhilesh Yadav displayed on one side and that of party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav on the other, besides a picture of party leader Mohammad Azam Khan.

Taking a swipe at the fancy rath, BJP leader and UP government spokesperson Sidharth Nath Singh said "the one who dumped the harried people during the corona times is going to the public in his five-star rath" and termed it as "another insult to the people of the state".
