BJP President JP Nadda launched a blistering attack on Opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh today and said jailed politicians Azam Khan and Mukhtar Ansari hid in burrows and are now playing ‘gillidanda’ in jail under Yogi Adityanath’s rule.
“Wouldn't Azam khan, Mukhtar Ansari have an upper hand under Akhilesh government? Under Yogi Ji, they hid themselves in burrows (bill) and are now playing 'gillidanda' in jail,” Nadda said at a rally in Kushinagar ahead of the fifth phase of the marathon UP polls on Sunday.
Gillidanda is an ancient sport that mainly originated in South Asia and bears resemblances to cricket.
Nadda further asked the crowd whether mafias have been jailed under the Yogi rule or not.
