Mumbai: Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Monday called the ‘Mission Shakti’ launched by the Yogi Adityanath government a false propaganda.
The UP Chief Minister started the program from Balrampur district on Saturday with the aim of protecting and empowering women.
Akhilesh Yadav said in a statement that the BJP government initiated the program as the incidents of rape in the state started to bring dissatisfaction to it.
Akhilesh said that the Chief Minister has introduced another advertisement of misleading propaganda in the name of Mission Shakti.
He said, “Every daughter of the state is waiting for the answer to the question as to where the anti-Romeo squad is. The Samajwadi government had shielded the 1090 helpline for the safety of women, but the BJP made it ineffective.”
The SP chief alleged that even in its fourth year, the state government has not started anything new and is only inaugurating the work done during SP rule.
