Launching a scathing attack on Akhilesh Yadav, he said, “It is strange to hear about democracy from his mouth as he had crushed all democratic values, ideals, principles of democracy during his five-year rule in Uttar Pradesh. All over the state.” Made hell and got caught in the grip of mafia and goons.”

“Exit polls want to create an impression that BJP is winning. This is the last battle of democracy. EVMs are being moved without informing the candidates. If EVMs are being transported like this, we need to be cautious. need. It’s theft.” We need to save our votes. We can go to court against this but before that I want to appeal to the people to save democracy.
