First manage family rift then think about managing Uttar Pradesh: Amit Shah to Akhilesh Yadav

Aiming to win the UP elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah today came down heavily on his political rivals and said that neither the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) nor the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) can lead the state on the development path.

"No one can lead Uttar Pradesh on the path of development other than the BJP," Shah said while addressing a rally in Kanpur.

Taking a jibe at the Samajwadi Party leadership over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, Shah advised the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav-led government to first handle the rift within the family and then think about managing the state.

"The Samajwadi government cannot tackle the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh. I would like to say that a party which cannot handle its home how will it govern a state," said Shah.

Further taking on BSP supremo Mayawati, Shah dared her to disclose the assets which she held at the time of taking over as the party chief and her present possessions.

"Mayawati claims that if she wins in UP then she would rectify the law and order situation and put an end to corruption. I would like to ask her to disclose the assets she and her brother had when Kashiram ji had handed over the responsibility of the party to her and the assets she holds now," said Shah.

The BJP president also used the occasion to reach out to the Dalit community.
