SP's 'kaam bolta hai' slogan a publicity gimmick: Yogi Adityanath
BJP firebrand leader Yogi Adityanath on Thursday dubbed Samajwadi Party's "Kaam Bolta Hai" slogan as a "publicity gimmick", even as he questioned the ruling party's decision to contest the upcoming state polls in partnership with Congress.
"Their 'kaam bolta hai' (work speaks) slogan is a publicity gimmick. If its work was enough, why is it contesting on less than 300 seats? Moreover, why did SP wrap a dead snake like Congress around its neck?" he said at an election rally here.
After days of frantic negotiations, Congress and Samajwadi Party had forged a pre-poll alliance to contest the UP Assembly polls. Accusing both SP and BSP for having pushed the state to lawlessness, anarchy and corruption, Adityanath said, "UP CM says his 'kaam bolta hai', but I want to know which work. You claim construction of roads in villages but it was funded by BJP-led NDA at the Centre."
