Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath yesterday (Sunday) targeted opposition parties, especially the Samajwadi Party (SP), at the inaugural function of development works in Kushinagar and accused the Samajwadi Party government of rationing the poor and letting them die. He was benefiting a community called Abba Jaan. Why weren’t the poor getting rations before 2017? Because then the state government and the mafia were eating the rations of the poor and the people were starving and their rations were reaching Nepal and Bangladesh. Today, no one can take the ration of the poor, if they take it, they will definitely go to jail.
