Only 20% people to back BJP, says Akhilesh Yadav

By Anushka Tyagi

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday, January 14, took a swipe at Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying by the “80 versus 20” assertion, he meant only 20 per cent of the population will back the BJP in the Uttar Pradesh elections, while the remaining 80 per cent will support his party.

Baba mukhya mantri” (Yogi Adityanath) should engage a math teacher,” the SP president was quoted as saying by PTI, referring to the chief minister’s “80 vs 20” remarks. Yadav also dismissed the BJP’s claim of winning three-fourth seats in the 403-member Uttar Pradesh Assembly, saying, “they meant they will win three or four seats.”

On January 14th, the party welcomed Swami Prasad Maurya, Dharam Singh Saini, and five other MLAs who had quit the BJP earlier this week. Taking a dig at the flurry of resignations from the BJP, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav said, "wickets gir rahe the (wickets were dropping)."
