UP: SP will be in power in 2022: Akhilesh Yadav
Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Friday exuded confidence that the 2022 Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh will see his party in power as neither demonetisation nor any other issue can "mislead people anymore".
He took a jibe at the ruling BJP over the demonetisation while taking part in the birthday celebrations of a baby who was born when his mother was standing in a long queue outside a bank to get her old currency changed, days after the note ban came into effect on November 8, 2016.
On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes would cease to be legal tender.
"The wounds of demonetisation and GST have now become deeper. In 2022, it will be Samajwadi Party government in the state," Yadav said.
BSP president Mayawati also lashed out at the government over the decision and said that people were keeping an eye on its ill-effects. In a tweet, she said, "In the last three years, the results are coming before the public in different forms of demonetisation brought by the BJP-led central government in an immature and hasty manner without any preparation.
