Barabanki: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today appeared to be defending Priyanka Gandhi's husband Robert Vadra, accusing BJP of blowing the issue of land deals out of proportion and attacked Narendra Modi saying his name meant “Model of Dividing India”.
Yadav, without naming anyone, said the issue was being raised by BJP as an attempt to distract the attention of the people from other things, an apparent reference to the BJP questioning the land deals by Vadra, son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
“BJP is unnecessarily blowing the land issue out of proportion.
This is not a big thing. Which party does not give land to companies to set up project for the development of the area when it comes to power.
By creating hype over the issue, BJP is distracting the attention of the people from other things,” he said, without naming anyone, while addressing an election rally at Jaidpur.
