She has a broken leg, but nothing is going to stop her,” Ms Bachchan, a Bengali by birth, and a four-term Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh, said.

FIR against Akhilesh Yadav & 20 Samajwadi Party workers for allegedly assaulting journalists in Moradabad

On EVMs (Electronic Voting Machines), I still say that no one trusts them. Recently in the USA, the polls were conducted on ballot papers, and counting took several days. People trust only ballot papers, but this fight cannot be fought right now. We are preparing for the assembly polls through training camps. At least if all SP workers cast their votes, BJP will be defeated. And when SP government is formed, ‘samajwadis’ will be the first to discard EVMs.
The Samajwadi Party (SP) will win the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections by a huge majority and then ‘samajwadi people’ will work towards abolishing the electronic voting system, party president Akhilesh Yadav claimed on Thursday. Replying to another question, the SP chief said, “In UP, the situation will not be like Bihar assembly polls. In Bihar, the grand alliance government was going to be formed, but BJP did not let it happen. In UP, the BJP will taste defeat by a huge margin. The SP will win 350 seats (of a total 403 seats).”
Instead of discharging constitutional duties, his (Adityanath’s) mind is more engaged in going to other states as a star campaigner (for polls) and changing the name of cities. The government does not have any sympathy for the farmers. It is only worried about the corporate houses and how to fill their coffers and hold hostage the resources of the state.
Love jihad is a political stunt. In our country, individuals have the right to choose their partners. Hindus marry Muslims, Muslims marry Hindus. If you get into the details of such cases, you will realise that the knot was tied happily. When things go wrong, then they allege that the boy was a Muslim. I would urge Muslim boys to consider Hindu girls as their sisters. Else, they could be tortured by the government.
Moradabad SP MP ST Hasan, on Thursday, urged Muslim youth to consider Hindu girls as their ‘sisters’ and said that they should not fall for them in view of the new ‘love jihad’ ordinance passed by the Uttar Pradesh government. He alleged that the BJP ‘creates a distance between Hindus and Muslims when elections approach’. On Tuesday, the Uttar Pradesh Cabinet passed the contentious ‘Love Jihad’ ordinance to counter the alleged cases of ‘Love Jihad’.
We have the support of people and are contesting all the 11 seats of Vidhan Parishad. Our candidate is Awdhesh Yadav. There is chaos in the state under the BJP government as the party only believes in politics of hatred. People are waiting to elect SP back to power in 2022. Pension system will be revived, Urdu, Sanskrit and Hindi teachers will get honour.
Adjustment will be done with smaller parties, but there will be no alliance with larger parties. We will adjust that party too. Jaswantnagar is his (Shivpal Yadav’s) seat and the Samajwadi Party vacated the seat for him. In the coming times, we will make their leader a cabinet minister, and what other adjustment is needed?
When the EVMs were opened for the counting of votes, the results were stopped midway – Akhilesh Yadav on Bihar Elections
The maximum public support was seen at the Mahagathbandhan rallies and all the surveys hinted towards a historic victory for it. But, when the EVMs were opened for the counting of votes, the results were stopped midway and the victory certificates were handed to someone else.
When the elections are contested by the election officers, superintendents of police, additional district magistrates, SHOs and police jawans, who will win then. The BJP was not contesting the bypolls but the officials of its government. If someone is insulting people and giving them problems, they will overthrow that government as and when they will get an opportunity.
Akhilesh Yadav took potshots at the state government on Saturday. Taking to Twitter he too said, “Those sending farmers to jail in the name of environmental pollution for stubble burning should tell when will those people be jailed who are spreading political pollution.” “Kisan ab BJP ka khet khod denge” (Farmers will now dig field of BJP), in a way possibly stating that people will now dig the grave of BJP government. He also added the hashtag #Nahi_Chahiye_BJP (No more BJP).
Everyone knows very well about Behen ji and how her history has been. She has even maligned Netaji’s image, while Netaji continues to be the respected leader for every party till date. The BSP formed the government thrice by forging alliance with the BJP. Now if the BSP MLAs are breaking, then what is the fault of anyone else in this?

Both BJP and BSP want that SP should lose. Why do they both think the same? The airports have been sold, airplanes have been sold. No one knows what will be sold next. The entire government is fighting the by-election against me, but the public will teach them a lesson.
Today, I have submitted my resignation from the Indian National Congress. My statement with regard to this is being shared by me. Need love and blessings of all my well-wishers!

Any party candidate, who will be dominant over SP’s 2nd candidate, will get all BSP MLAs’ vote for sure. Our party had joined hands with SP to fight communal forces during Lok Sabha elections.
