Lucknow, Dec 9 – Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday, without making any reference to the expulsion Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra from the Lok Sabha, attacked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said that the inimical attitude of the party leadership towards the opposition is entirely unconstitutional and undemocratic.
In a statement issued here, Akhilesh said that it seems as if BJP has decided to crush every voice of the opposition. He alleged that BJP neither believes in freedom of expression nor has allegiance to the Constitution.
He said, “Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar had expressed doubts in the Constituent Assembly about the misuse and monopolistic tendencies of the Constitution. His suspicion is going to be proved correct.”
The SP chief said that the tendencies of undeclared dictatorship are clearly visible under BJP rule. “It would be better if the ruling party hires a consultant to take the membership of the opposition people so that the time of the ministers, MPs and MLAs of the ruling party is not spent in conspiratorial activities but in working for the public interest,” he said.
He said, “If the basis on which membership of the MPs is being taken is made applicable to the ruling party, then perhaps only one or two MPs and MLAs will be left.”
Akhilesh said that BJP is also destroying the credibility of these institutions by using government agencies, Income Tax, ED and CBI to defame their opponents along with the vicious cycle of snatching their membership. “There can be no place for such actions in a democracy,” he said.
