  • BJP's Satish Mahana elected as Speaker of UP Assembly unopposed
  • Though you have come from the right side, you have to take care of left too, Akhilesh said
  • CM Yogi Adityanath too congratulated Mahana on being selected as Assembly Speaker

The first day of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly saw some light-humour moments during the address of Leader of Opposition Akhilesh Yadav. This was the first session which was held after the new state government was sworn-in on March 25 under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The Samajwadi Party chief welcomed the newly-elected Speaker Satish Mahana. His address which was in Hindi, primarily had some cautious advice for the Speaker and under-the -belt remarks for the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government, which retained power for the second consecutive term in the state.

Akhilesh said, "Hope you will see that elected govt doesn't become a dictator. (Chuni hui sarkar, tanashah sarkar na ban jaye, ye aapko dhyan dena hoga adhyaksh ji). You will have to listen to the Opposition too. (Bhale hi aap right se hain par aapko abb left ka bhi dhyan dena hoga).

Taking a swipe at the Yogi government, he said, "Good that I went abroad... because hadn't it been the case, the state would not have got Lucknow Expressway and Kanpur Metro by the Samajwadi Party."

Earlier speaking in the Assembly after escorting Mahana to the Speaker's chair, CM Adityanath said it's a good sign for the state that two "wheels of democracy" (ruling and opposition) moved in one direction.

He appealed to both the ruling and the Opposition members that now the elections are over and it's their duty to work for the progress of UP to fulfil wishes of people.
