The Samajwadi Party leader also promised opening up of more sugar mills and milk plants in the constituency.


Akhilesh hit out at the Modi government over demonetisation and its "failure to rein in black money hoarders".


"No compensation was announced by the Centre for those who lost their lives while standing in serpentine bank queues in the wake of demonetisation. Nevertheless, the SP government has given Rs 2 lakh each to the deceased's families," he said.

The first phase of the crucial Assembly polls will begin on February 11. The ruling Samajwadi Party has entered into an alliance with Congress for the state polls.
