SP said- BJP does politics in the name
Samajwadi Party spokesperson Abhishek Mishra claims that the Samajwadi Party had started the work of making all those medical colleges which are being inaugurated. BJP is just changing their names. Abhishek Mishra says that ever since the BJP came to power, it is only inaugurating the works of Akhilesh Yadav by renaming it.
Yogi said- Medical colleges in all the districts of UP in six months
