Akhilesh Yadav pedaling cycle that ‘is on its stand’: Rahul Gandhi in UP

Mainpuri (UP): Taking on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in his family bastion of Mainpuri, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said he was pedalling the cycle which “is on its stand”.

He said he had hopes that under young Akhilesh unlike the previous BSP government, the state would progress but the Chief Minister failed to live up to the expectations.

“It was the elephant (BSP government) which did nothing and then AKhilesh took over…It looked he will do something good for the people as he was a young Chief Minister, but contrary to my expectations he could not perform because he was pedalling a cycle that is on its stand. First it was the “pathar-wali sarkar” and, when it went. came the “uncle-nephew” sarkar. Nobody did anything for the state,” he said.
