Akhilesh Yadav also slammed the NDA government at the Centre and the Yogi Adityanath government in the state, while addressing the gathering. “The state of the economy is in a sorry state. The GDP is down and the inflation rate is rising. The manufacturing sector is about to collapse, and no new jobs are being generated.
There is complete lack of proper policies of the current dispensation in the state and the CEntre as well. I assure you (students) that we will do our best for this institution when coming back to the power in the state.”
