Kannauj : Kicking off poll campaign in his wife Dimple Yadav’s parliamentary constituency, UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday targeted Narendra Modi saying while SP government was working for all-round development of the state, Gujarat was only ahead in publicity, reports PTI.

“Gujarat is only ahead in publicity whereas Uttar Pradesh is continuously developing,” Akhilesh, who inaugurated 17 projects and laid the foundation stone of 26 others, said while addressing a gathering. He also distributed loan waiver certificates to 7,017 farmers. Attacking Congress, he alleged that it has encouraged corruption in the past 10 years and has “only made the people cry”. On his party’s arch rival BSP, Yadav said during the previous government, all government funds were spent on statues and parks while development took a backseat.
