Samajwadi Party would contest all the five Lok Sabha seats up for grabs in Uttarakhand as part of its mission 2019 to oust BJP from power. The party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said while addressing a press conference in Haridwar on Wednesday that the people of the state like those of the rest of the country are impatiently waiting for the general election to throw the saffron party out of power. “They have unleashed an authoritarian rule on the country and conditions of unannounced Emergency are prevailing everywhere. Champions of hatred, the RSS-BJP combine is engaged in fighting one community off against another, eyes fixed on communal polarisation,” he said.
Determined to build a pan-India presence of the party, they would focus on Uttarakhand too, the SP leader said, adding that the party president Akhilesh Yadav would tour states from July 20 onwards and Uttarakhand would figure in it. He might visit the Himalayan state early next month, he said. He, however, parried questions over who would be projected as the PM face of the party during the upcoming general election.
“Indira Gandhi imposed emergency in the country in 1975, but the BJP has unleashed a similar atmosphere of fear and uncertainty in the country without announcing Emergency formally. BJP flaunts ‘Hindu Sanrakshan’ but actually it is the SP which is catering to the interests of the Hindus. RSS- BJP is a deadly combine which must be defeated to save the country from the clutches of hatred mongering,” the SP leader said.
He further said that the successive and emphatic victories of the party in the by-polls in Uttar Pradesh have enthused the party’s rank and file enough into throwing down the gauntlet to the ruling BJP across the country. Among those present at the press conference were the party’s national level secretary Chandrashekhar Yadav, and the Haridwar district party president Deenanath Yadav.
