While addressing an election rally on Wednesday, former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav targetted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath by falsely accusing him of making casteist remarks. However, in a hurry to attack Yogi Adityanath, Akhilesh Yadav attacked his own ally BSP supremo Mayawati.
Speaking at the rally, Samajwadi party chief Akhilesh Yadav targetted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister by falsely attributing a casteist remark to him even though the deplorable remarks against Akhilesh Yadav were made by BSP supremo Mayawati.
Akhilesh Yadav: Hume keh rahe hain ki samvidhan na hota toh hum bhains chara rahe hote, Kaise CM hain? Agar Laptop dedo ke zara chala do toh do din pata nahi lagega gayab ho jayenge. Humare bare mein unke vichar ye ho sakte hain to socho gareeb ke bare mein kya tulna karte honge. pic.twitter.com/kkQLNGiFQ1

“He said had there been no Constitution, I would be grazing buffaloes, what kind of CM is he? If you ask him to run a laptop you won’t find him after two days. If he thinks like that about me, imagine what he thinks of the poor?,” said Akhilesh Yadav.
According to Akhilesh Yadav, Yogi Adityanath had allegedly made a casteist remark saying that if had there been no constitution, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav would be working under a Zamindar grazing after his buffaloes.
However, in reality, CM Yogi Adityanath was referring to an earlier comment made by BSP supremo Mayawati where she had attacked Akhilesh Yadav for disrespecting Ambedkar.
We had earlier fact checked it to reveal that casteist statements against Akhilesh Yadav were initially made by BSP supremo Mayawati, which was then used by Yogi Adityanath to expose the hypocrisy of the leaders of both Samajwadi and Bahujan Samajwadi party.
Rohini Singh, a self-proclaimed journalist close to Samajwadi party along with her colleague from the anti-India propaganda and fake news website ‘The Wire‘ had furthered a fake narrative similar to her alleged beneficiary Akhilesh Yadav.
After caught pants down for spreading fake news, she initially blamed Amar Ujala for misleading them with their headline but accepted that the statements were indeed made by Mayawati and not made by Yogi Adityanath. However, she did not apologise for propagating fake news.
