Union minister and Bharatiya Janata Party leader Rajnath Singh on January 30 hit out at the Samajwadi Party and said that BJP seeks votes on the basis of humanity and justice only, reported NDTV.
Addressing people during a 'Prabhavi Matdaata Samvad' (effective voter dialogue) program in Kasganj, Singh took a jibe at Akhilesh Yadav-led party - "Red topi of SP spells red alert", and said, "We do not want votes on the basis of caste, creed and religion. We seek votes only on the basis of justice and humanity."
"Samajwadi Party is doing politics of polarisation. They have crossed all limits to get the vote of a particular religion. Votes from polarisation politics are not acceptable to us," he added.
Apart from this, the Defence Minister also lauded current Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for not letting any riots to take place during the tenure.
"The Samajwadi Party has to accept the fact that it was in their tenure only that so many riots took place. They need to answer why did this happen. And, you all need to understand why no one could dare to riot under the rule of Bharatiya Janata Party," NDTV quoted Singh as saying.
Rajnath Singh even expressed his confidence that the BJP will repeat the win of 2017.
Earlier on January 28, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav alleged a ploy by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), after his chopper to western Uttar Pradesh was briefly "stopped" by the authorities.
