Lucknow, Apr 19 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Uma Bharti on Thursday advised the newly-elected Samajwadi Party (SP) Government in Uttar Pradesh to keep a check on the law and order in the state.
Bharti, who was elected from Charkhari seat in Mahoba district in the Uttar Pradesh polls, took the oath of office as an MLA today.
"I would like to tell both Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Yadav that when Mayawati came into power then I told her that Uttar Pradesh now wants to give full majority. People now think that coalition governments do not work properly. So, if the poor who gave you such a thumping majority are later cheated by you then be warned, they will vote you out," said Bharti after taking the oath.
"People expect the Samajwadi Party Government to keep a check on crime and corruption. In fact, they need to first control their own party cadre," she added.
Bharti further said the BJP has analyzed the reasons for its defeat in the polls.
"We have analyzed the defeat and our shortcomings. We will fulfill our role of the opposition party. Mulayam Singh Yadav should not be under the impression that we are few in number. We maybe few in number but we are strong morally," she said.
Akhilesh Yadav, who became the youngest chief minister of Uttar Pradesh on March 15, propelled the Samajwadi Party to a resounding return to power in Uttar Pradesh. The Samajwadi Party won 224 of the 403 state assembly seats.
Akhilesh, 38, has been credited with reviving the party's image through his earnest approach and campaigns that won over the state's voters with promises of development. (ANI)
