He further claimed that that party is trying to gain dominance in the state."
In recently concluded Panchayat polls, BJP tried to influence results, but still, they faced defeat. Now just to gain dominance, they have given free hand to DM, SP to make elections (results) in their favour. With money and admin power BJP is manipulating elections," Yadav alleged.
"BJP does not want to hold a debate on real matters like unemployment, inflation," concluded the SP chief.Earlier, Akhilesh Yadav had said that the 2022 UP Assembly polls will usher in a democratic revolution in the state.
