Lucknow: Campaigning has begun in Uttar Pradesh over next year's proposed assembly elections. A video related to the same is going viral on social media. In this Samajwadi Party (SP) meeting, the party leader appealed for votes for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) instead of the SP. Now Congress as well as filmmaker Ashok Pandit have also taken a dig at SP chief Akhilesh Yadav while sharing the video.
The leader seen in the video is saying in the meeting of the Samajwadi Party (SP), 'I want to tell all my brothers that the victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party is not only the victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party, but it also is our victory and with the strength, we are the people of India. The more you vote for the party, the stronger the BJP will be.' However, when he realized his mistake, he immediately rectified his mistake. While posting this video from its Twitter account, UP Congress has written many, 'Kya Akhilesh Yadav Ji? Khela Kar Diye Ka? Nayi Hawa Hai, BJP Se Mili SP Hai.'
While sharing the video on Twitter, filmmaker Ashok Pandit wrote, "Saffron is the only colour that makes a person praise the BJP as soon as he wears it. Akhilesh Yadav, you won't get power, but yes, your party workers will have to join BJP.''
