BJP swept the Zila Parishad elections in Uttar Pradesh
Recently, BJP swept the Zila Parishad elections in Uttar Pradesh with 67 out of 75 seats. While speaking to news agency ANI, he remarked, “BJP candidates won 67 out of 75 district panchayat chairperson seats. I thank BJP workers. BJP will win 2022 elections with a huge margin. We will win more than 300 seats.” CM Yogi Adityanath announced that BJP will continue its winning streak, despite any alliances created to topple him. He added that earlier such alliances were tried and tested in both 2017 and 2019 but they failed.
Conspiracy theory run by the opposition
Yogi Adityanath also slammed Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav for alleging that the BJP won Zila Parishad seats by misusing administrative power. “Two things are very clear: When we win Lok Sabha elections, they blame the EVMs. When elections were conducted using ballot papers this time, they began blaming the administration…If we win, they blame the administration and EVMs. If they win, it somehow implies hard work by Samajwadi workers. Our victory is also the hard work of our party workers,” remarked the UP Chief Minister.
