 PM Modi to address second virtual rally in Uttar Pradesh on Feb 4

The stage is set for Assembly elections in five states -- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur, Goa and Punjab. While the first four are ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the last one has a Congress government. The Election Commission has already announced the dates and all the political parties have started flexing their muscles in the poll-bound states. Uttar Pradesh, the country's most populous and one of the most politically crucial states, is already witnessing marathon rallies by top politicians from both the ruling and opposition parties. From Congress' side, its senior leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is spearheading the campaign. She is addressing rallies across the length and breadth of the state, promising to bring a change if her party forms the next government. Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati, both former CMs of Uttar Pradesh, are also leaving no stone unturned to woo the voters.

    Mayawati hits out at BJP, SP and Congress for not doing enough for Dalits

    BSP chief Mayawati on Wednesday hit out at BJP, SP and Congress for not doing enough for Dalits and asserted that her party has a track record of working for all sections of society as she launched her party's campaign for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. Terming the rival parties "anti-Dalit", she said though they make various promises in their manifestos ahead of polls, they forget about them after coming to power.

    Mayawati, who has been conspicuous by her absence from the high-octane campaigning in the state, also said she has been living in Lucknow for a year and working to rebuild the BSP.

    She said some "casteist media groups" are trying to demoralise BSP supporters by saying that their party leaders are missing on the ground.

    Akhilesh govt will build Ayodhya temple faster, better: Ram Gopal Yadav

    Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav on Wednesday refuted Home Minister Amit Shah's statements on the SP's stand on the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya, saying the temple will be built faster and better if Akhilesh Yadav becomes the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. During a discussion on the Motion of Thanks on the President's Address in Rajya Sabha, the SP leader said his party is not opposed to the construction of the grand temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram. He was referring to Shah's recent statement made during the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh that Akhilesh Yadav will not be able to stop the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya. "Who is stopping the construction of the temple?" Yadav asked while alleging siphoning of funds that are being currently collected for the construction of the Ram temple. "If the Akhilesh government comes, a better temple will be built at a faster pace," Ram Gopal Yadav said. Policies are not being talked about, he said adding that unparliamentary language is being used for Akhilesh Yadav. "If you use abusive language for Akhilesh, call him a goon...will you get the votes," he said during the debate.

    UP: Congress seeks to teach turncoat a lesson in Rae Bareli

    The Congress is banking on former minister Surendra Vikram Singh to redeem its pride in Harchandpur assembly segment, hoping to teach a lesson to its own MLA, Rakesh Singh, for switching sides. Rakesh Singh, who won the seat in 2017 as a Congress nominee, is fighting the assembly election on a BJP ticket this time. Veteran Surendra Vikram Singh joined the Congress only recently and was thrown into the fray to rein in the traitor. Harchandpur assembly segment is part of the Rae Bareli parliamentary constituency, regarded as a Gandhi family bastion. "After I was given the ticket, Priyanka ji told me and all others to go all-out to trounce the local MLA who is indulging in 'goondagardi' (criminal acts)," Surendra Vikram Singh told PTI while campaigning in Paidepur village. "There is a lot of anger among the people for the present MLA for betraying the Congress, which had given him and his family all posts," Singh, who is addressed by the local people as ''vidhayak ji' (MLA), said.

    Sitapur: SP candidate files nomination reaching on tractor

    A Samajwadi Party candidate drove a tractor to the collectorate office to file his nomination to apparently express his solidarity with the farmers. Four time MLA from Samajwadi Party Mahendra Kumar Singh filed his nomination for Sevta constituency on Tuesday reaching the office with a sugarcane in his hand. When asked about the reason, Singh said it was to show his concern for demands of farmers who are facing a lot of problems in the present BJP regime. "I promise farmers that if voted to power, my party will do all they need. In my area, which is flood-prone, a lot of work has to be done. Stray cattle are also a menace. Sugarcane farmers' dues are pending. I will work to ensure they are cleared," he said. Singh alias Jheen Babu became MLA from Samajwadi Party for the first time in 1996 and was elected in 2002, 2007, and 2012 also. In 2017, SP denied him ticket and as a result he did not contest the election. This time he is pitted against Gyan Tiwari of BJP who is also a sitting MLA. Sitapur will go to poll in the fourth phase on Feb 23. Asked about his previous ticket snub, Singh said he always abides by the party's decisions and is a firm believer in its values.

    BJP indulging in politics of negativity: Akhilesh Yadav

    Those talking of the Kairana exodus will have to migrate out of Uttar Pradesh after the assembly polls, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said on Wednesday as he accused the BJP of indulging in politics of negativity. Addressing a press conference with alliance partner Rashtriya Lok Dal president Jayant Chaudhary in Shamli's Kairana, Yadav hit out at the BJP-led governments both in the state as well as at the Centre.

He also ridiculed the centre's terming of the annual financial statement amrit kaal, asking whether the previous budgets were poison. Diamonds, slippers and shoes have been made cheaper in the budget. How will cheaper diamonds help the poor?
