Uttar Pradesh Elections 2022: Mayawati urges people to vote out BJP, slams Yogi Adityanath

Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh): As the third phase of polling is underway in Uttar Pradesh, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati urged people to vote for the BJP for giving false promises of employment.

In a series of tweets, the BSP chief said it is necessary to change the ruling party to get rid of all kinds of false promises made by the BJP. In another tweet, he said, “Wrong policies of the ruling party have made poor people poorer, should not be trusted anymore and BSP should be trusted.”

“The biggest failure of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is not being able to provide employment to the people. In fact, the employment opportunities that were there were also snatched away from the people. The biggest responsibility of the government in present times is to provide livelihood to the people. To give the opportunity,” Mayawati said.

Voting for the third phase of Uttar Pradesh elections began at 7 am on Sunday for 59 seats.
