Hours after the BJP stitched its alliance with the Nishad Party (NP) in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday, Samajwadi party chief Akhilesh Yadav took to Twitter to term it as 'loser alliance'. During the 2018 bypolls in Uttar Pradesh, Pravin Kumar Nishad fought the election on SP seat and won. Taking a jibe at Nishad Party, the SP chief said:
"Development is asking: Will the Gorakhpur MP share the 'Prashad' with others or will he have it all? This is loser deal for BJP as the people did not vote for the MP but for the United Mahagathbandhan at that time. Their ship will sink during the election."
The party later ended its alliance with the SP-BSP duo and joined hands with the BJP.
Earlier on Thursday, Akhilesh Yadav also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP asking whether the 'the party is even planning to release its manifesto anytime soon?' He termed the BJP’s manifesto as a document on ‘achhe din’ and claimed that the BJP is unable to take the ache din garb further as its leaders have also stopped citing their quote ‘ache din aane wale hain.’
'Vikas' is asking if the Prime Minister's manifesto of 'achhe din' will come after the polls? This time even the BJP supporters are not able to say among themselves that 'acche din' is coming, so how will they say this to people?" Akhilesh said in a tweet.
The SP chief also said that countdown of the BJP has started. He has been using 'VikasPoochhRahaHai' tagline in his tweets to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his development claims. Earlier, he posted a picture of himself with a caption that read:
Why were people in power not able to make any road like this, (pointing to the road in which he was seen walking in the picture he posted)walking on which their chest would expand a bit more?
May be they did not want there could be any road that would lead people to Delhi fast.
