‘Scam’ stands for Samajwadis, Congress, Akhilesh, Mayawati: Modi

Meerut: Targeting the BJP’s political rivals in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that “Scam” is an acronym for Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati.

The first war of Independence began here in Meerut in 1857

Addressing a huge election rally here, Modi said: “Do you know what ‘Scam’ stands for? It is ‘S’ for Samajwadi Party, ‘C’ for Congress, ‘A’ for Akhilesh and ‘M’ for Mayawati.”

Targeting the SP-Congress alliance, Modi said that till a few months back the Congress was taking out rallies across Uttar Pradesh and accusing the ruling Samajwadi Party of corruption and neglecting farmers, but the two have now “embraced each other”.

“What changed overnight that the two arch rivals embraced each other? This is to save themselves. Those cannot save themselves, how would they save Uttar Pradesh?” Modi said.

He likened his first election rally in Uttar Pradesh with India’s first war of independence in 1857, saying it was a fight against the British then and now it is a battle against poverty and the state’s rulers who have obstructed growth and development.

“The first war of Independence began here in Meerut in 1857. Then the fight was against the British and now the war is to eradicate poverty,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister said despite Uttar Pradesh having so much potential for development, youth from the state were still being forced to look for employment opportunities in other states of India.

He said his government wanted “to do so much for Uttar Pradesh but could not because the state government has been obstructing” his developmental initiatives.

“Every initiative (of the central government for Uttar Pradesh) gets stuck in Lucknow,” he said.
