Gorakhpur: The president of Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party, Shivpal Singh Yadav on Thursday said the UP chief minister is a saint and his work has been good but his language is not like that of a seer.
Talking to reporters in Gorakhpur, Shivpal said, “CM Yogi is a ‘sant’ chief minister and his work is also good, but his language is not like that of a ‘sant’ as he says ‘thok do’ and is razing the houses of criminals because of which their families are suffering though they have done nothing wrong.”
Replying to a query on alliance for 2022 state polls, Shivpal said his party could have alliance with SP but won’t merge in it.
“Our party can have alliance with Samajwadi Party in the forthcoming assembly elections but won’t merge in it. We are also having discussions with other parties having similar ideology for alliance,” he added
“We have sent our proposal for alliance to SP and will form government in 2022,” Shivpal said.
Targeting the ruling party, he said, “Inflation is at peak due to the wrong policies of BJP and all its promises of Ram Rajya have proved wrong. Lakhs of labourers and workers lost their jobs.”
Shivpal said BJP MLAs are not satisfied and internal conflict is visible in West Bengal where Mamata Banerjee will form government.
