WATCH: SP MLAs raise ‘Rajyapal Go Back’ slogans in UP Assembly Budget Session
The Budget Session of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly kicked-off on a stormy note on Monday as the opposition leaders raised ‘Rajyapal Go Back’ slogans against the governor’s address and outside the assembly in Lucknow.
Opposition MLAs raised slogans and displayed placards in the Assembly while opposing Governor Anandiben Patel’s address at the commencement of the Budget session.
SP MLAs led by party general secretary Shivpal Singh Yadav sat on a protest at the entry gate of the assembly with placards in their hands raising issues to farmers and law & order situation in the state.
Meanwhile, SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav alleged that the government has looted and destroyed the farmers, but didn’t pay attention to farming.
“They didn’t set up a mandi for irrigation, fertilisers, pesticides…. It’s a liar government that said they give Rs. 1 Lakh crore for infrastructure of mandis. Did they make even one mandi in UP?” he asked.
Yadav further raised the issue of the mother-daughter self-immolation in Kanpur Dehat recently claiming ‘Law and order has collapsed.’
“Recently, a mother and a daughter were burnt to death. Why? Because of the state government, administration and bulldozer. You are going around with bulldozers, expecting that investments will come. You are showing people dreams,” Akhilesh added.
UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath appealed to opposition leaders to let the proceedings run smoothly.
