PM copying me by adopting villages, building toilets: MSY

‘He (Modi) is talking about adopting villages. I have adopted villages in 1990. The Prime Minister is copying me. I have done all this. I have initiated construction of toilets in 1990,’ Yadav said while addressing a function here.

The SP chief said, ‘you talk about removing ‘gandagi’. You first remove poverty and it will automatically vanish.’  ‘I have already done, what he (PM) is talking now. You all should know,’ he said while asking party leaders, including legislators and ministers, to adopt at least two villages and work with full dedication there.

Rubbishing criticism over his ‘extravagant’ birthday celebrations with questions raised on the source of funds, Yadav said state money was not spent on it.

‘Those who are writing about this are ignorant.. No money of government was spent in Rampur,’ Yadav, who celebrated his 75th birthday by cutting a 75-foot-long cake in Rampur on Saturday, said.
Several parties had questioned the source of funds for the grand two-day celebrations held in Rampur, which was attended by his son Akhilesh and 40 other Uttar Pradesh ministers.
