Akhilesh Yadav accuses Yogi Adityanath of dynasticism

Lucknow: In response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on nepotism during his Independence Day address, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav said that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is also indulging in "parivarvaad" (dynasticism) in the state.

Modi, in his speech, attacked the opposition over corruption, dynastic politics, and appeasement. He also asserted BJP's return to power in 2024.

"If the Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) is talking about dynastic politics from the Red Fort, then he should also have a look at the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister who has become an example of 'parivarvaad' in the state," Yadav told reporters in Saifai, Etawah.

The SP chief was apparently referring to Adityanath joining politics after his guru Mahant Avaidyanath retired from it.

Avaidyanath was elected as MP from Gorakhpur Lok Sabha constituency after the death of his Guru, Mahant Digvijay Nath, in 1969 and represented it many times.

After his retirement from politics, in 1998, Avaidyanath’s disciple Yogi Adityanath was elected from Gorakhpur and represented it continuously till he became the Chief Minister in 2017.
