Ambedkarnagar (UP): Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Saturday said the Uttar Pradesh election was about changing the fate of the state which has been caught in a tug of war between ‘bua-bhatija’ Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav.

He also attacked the SP-Congress alliance, saying it was a tie-up of “corrupt families”. “This election is not about electing a particular party over the other. It is about changing the bhagya (fate) of state, which has been caught in a tug of war between bua (Mayawati) and bhatija (Akhilesh) for the past 15 years,” he said addressing an election rally in Ambedkarnagar, about 240 from the state capital Lucknow.

Taking a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and SP national president Akhilesh Yadav, the BJP chief said, “The tales of two princes are very unique. One is giving a tough time to his mother, while the other is posing problems for his father. And, the state is worried by their antics.”

Shah also sought a performance report from the Congress. “Your (Rahul Gandhi) family has ruled the country for 60 years. What has it done for the country? Rahul must answer this,” the BJP chief said.
