NEW DELHI: Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav, who was set to address a press conference in Muzaffarnagar along with alliance partner Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Jayant Chaudhary on Friday alleged that his helicopter was not allowed to take off from Delhi whereas another chopper carrying BJP leader was allowed to fly.
Yadav tweeted: “My helicopter is still being held in Delhi for no reason and not being allowed to go to Muzaffarnagar. Meanwhile, a helicopter with a top leader of BJP has taken off. This is a conspiracy by BJP which is going to lose in the elections.”
मेरे हैलिकॉप्टर को अभी भी बिना किसी कारण बताए दिल्ली में रोककर रखा गया है और मुज़फ़्फ़रनगर नहीं जाने दिया जा रहा है। जबकि भाजपा के एक शीर्ष नेता अभी यहाँ से उड़े हैं। हारती हुई भाजपा की ये हताशा भरी साज़िश है।
