While PM Narendra Modi had been raising voice to the loudest pitch regarding his party 'fighting' corruption and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath's on-camera gimmicks scolding officials, two BJP MLAs in Uttar Pradesh have blamed rampant corruption in Yogi Ministry for the reason behind the Kairana and Noorpur lose.
MLA from Gopamau Vidhan Sabha in Hardoi, Shyam Prakash while blaming the corrupt officials working under the government, says that the working of the government is still under the scrutiny of the people.
'We could not garner enough support and lost both the seats as the people could not trust us regarding corruption', though he praised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the steps being taken by him, but he opined that there is rampant corruption under the Yogi Government.
'The government officials are into rampant corruption. There are no checks and balances for them. We have promised to the people in 2014 that we will end corruption within the government and the people trusted us and voted for us. But the situation did not change. The mentality of government officials or the remedial measures from the government had been near to nothing', claimed Shyam Prakash on his facebook page.
On the other hand, the MLA from Bairiya Vidhan Sabha in Ballia, Surendra Singh, has not only showed his dissent on the party loss in Kairana Vidhan Sabha, but has also signalled at the administrative calibre of the top leadersip in the state.
He blamed that it was after the loss of Kairana and Noorpur which brought the entire opposition under one umbrella. He too like MLA Shyam Prakash, blamed the corrupt officials of the government for not doing the required work at the required pace in the districts which eventually led to loss of face during the Vidhan Sabha by elections in the two seats.
If this was not all, even a close ally of Bhartiya Janata Party in the state, Suhadev Bharatiya Samaj Party leader Sukhdev Singh Rajbhar continued his tirade against the Yogi Adityanath government depsite being a cabinet minister in the state cabinet. He claimed that the government has failed to check the rise of corruption and control its officials.
This is not the first time when some MLAs have aired their voice of dissent against their own party in Uttar Pradesh. Several others in the past has raised objection on the way the government is run by the leadership in the state.
