Lucknow: Accusing the Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) of having a tacit understanding, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari Thursday said his party would within five years generate employment for 50 lakh youths in Uttar Pradesh if it came to power in the state. “We have the power to change the future of the state and take it towards development … We have devised a plan for it. If BJP is voted to power in the forthcoming assembly polls, it would generate employment for 50 lakh people, build roads in every village and set up at least a hospital in every district of the state during the five years of the regime,” he said.
Addressing the party’s “Vijay Sankalp Samagam” in Ayodhya city, some 150 km from Lucknow, Gadkari alleged that the Congress, BSP and SP are involved in “noora-kushti (shadow boxing)”.
“The three merely pretend to be the rivals of one another, but actually they have entered a tacit agreement for vested interests,” he said.
The Vijay Sankalp Samagam marks the conclusion of the two Jan Swabhiman Yatras that were being led by BJP leaders Kalraj Mishra and Rajnath Singh.
