KUSHINAGAR: Ahead of the UP assembly polls early next year, PM Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the previous Samajwadi Party government on Wednesday, saying the earlier regime associated itself with scams and crimes. “People of UP know that their (previous regime’s) identity is not of ‘samajwadi’ (socialist) but of ‘parivarwadi’ (dynasts). These people only did the welfare of their own family and forgot about UP and the masses,” he said. Lauding the crackdown on criminals by CM Yogi Adityanath, the PM said: “In Yogi’s regime, the mafia is now begging for mercy. Earlier, they enjoyed patronage for ‘khuli chhoot, khuli loot’ (free hand for open loot). But Yogi’s firm steps have pained ‘maafiawadis’ the most. They are in fear.” He added that when rule of law prevails, the benefits of government schemes reach the poor easily. Addressing a crowd of farmers, Modi quoted SP’s ideologue Ram Manohar Lohia to take a jibe at the SP government. “Lohia used to say ‘connect karma with compassion’, but those who were running the government earlier did not care about the pain of the poor.” Modi attempted to connect with the Bhojpuri speaking farmers in their dialect and laid the foundation stone of state-run medical college in Kushinagar. He also inaugurated 12 development projects worth Rs 180 crore and laid the foundation stones of several others.
