Akhilesh Yadav on bungalow row: It’s a politically motivated move to insult him

Lucknow: Former Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav today termed the “loot charge” against him as politically motivated and accused the Yogi Adityanath government of insulting him over taps. Addressing the media, the national president of Samajwadi Party said the BJP government is unable to digest the bypoll losses and thus it is “levelling false allegations out of frustration”.

Yadav claimed he removed no furnishings from the government bungalow, where he was staying since demitting the CM’s office last year.

The Yogi Adityanath government is unable to digest the Gorakhpur and Phulpur losses. The BJP is frustrated after bypoll loss,” he said. “It is the BJP’s conspiracy,” he charged.

“I gave laptops to children, but Yogi Adityanath government is insulting me over taps.”

Akhilesh said the Bharatiya Janata Party, which is in power in UP, is rattled after repeated defeats in recent by-elections.

Akhilesh’s statement came after UP Governor Ram Naik asked chief minister Yogi Adityanath to take action after damage was discovered in the government accommodation
