Hitting back to Prime Minister Modi, on Saturday UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said that the A and M in scam stands for Amit Shah and Modi

Attacking political rivals in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Modi on Saturday said that this election is the BJP’s fight against SCAM and meaning of SCAM is – Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh, Mayawati.

Reacting to PM Narendra Modi’s jibe, Akhilesh said “We have to save the country from SCAM. We have to save the country from people whose names start with A and M,” referring to Amit Shah and Narendra Modi.

CM Akhilesh, in a rally at UP’s Auraiya, sought retribution and said that PM Modi had to politically migrate to fulfil his prime ministerial ambitions. “Perhaps, he couldn’t have become the Prime Minister from Gujarat,” Akhilesh said.

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.

Uttar Pradesh goes to the polls in seven phases from February 11 to March 8. The counting of votes will be held on March 11.

The BJP hopes to repeat its 2014 Lok Sabha performance, riding on the Modi wave which got them 72 of the state’s 80 seats.

Its contest in the assembly elections beginning on February 11 is against the Samajwadi Party led by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in alliance with the Congress spearheaded by Rahul Gandhi.

The young duo has been campaigning aggressively in the state and was recently seen together at a ‘rath yatra’ in Lucknow.

The BJP has not yet declared its chief ministerial candidate. It is relying on its star campaigner PM Modi and the anti-incumbency.

It also hopes to gain from the infighting in Samajwadi’s first family which saw Akhilesh Yadav take party control from his father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav in a bitter takeover.
