Lucknow: After its shameless act of enjoying Bollywood dance at the Saifai festival and arranging foreign tours for ministers, the UP government on Thursday openly defended its acts and said that the political parties were resorting to ‘negative opposition’ to defame it.

Defending foreign tour of eight ministers, SP spokesman and Cabinet minister Rajendra Chowdhury said there was a tradition of such tours through which Parliamentary functioning of other countries was understood and better ties between two countries established.
“The SP government has not done anything new,” he said. On the cultural festival in SP supremo’s native village Saifai, which ended last night with performances by Bollywood actors, Chowdhury said opposition parties were unnecessarily making hue and cry over the event, through which folk arts and local talent is promoted.
