Akhilesh Yadav takes a jibe at Yogi government over power cuts
Lucknow: Samajwadi Party (SP) President Akhilesh Yadav has taken a jibe at the order given by CM Yogi regarding the improvement in the electricity department. He has said that after running the government for 5 years, now the government has woken up. Alleging the ongoing privatization, he said that reform is only possible only when the corruption ends.
Akhilesh Yadav tweeted on Wednesday morning, "After running the government for 5 years in Uttar Pradesh, now the government's mind has lit up that 'comprehensive reforms' are needed in the electricity department. The Government's push for privatization of the electricity department without any control doesn't serve the purpose of reforms. For reform, the Govt must end the nexus of corruption which is deep-rooted.
उप्र में 5 साल सरकार चलाने के बाद अब सरकार के दिमाग की बत्ती जली कि बिजली विभाग में ‘व्यापक सुधार’ की ज़रूरत है। बिजली विभाग के निजीकरण पर उतारू सरकार ये बताए कि जब उनके हाथ में नियंत्रण ही नहीं होगा तो सुधार लागू कैसे होंगे।— Akhilesh Yadav (@yadavakhilesh) May 4, 2022
