AZAMGARH: Union home minister Amit Shah on Saturday launched a frontal attack on Akhilesh Yadav in SP citadel Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh, asking people to choose between SP chief’s ‘JAM’ and UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s ‘JAM’ in the upcoming UP assembly elections.
Elaborating the acronym ‘JAM’, Shah said, “Akhilesh has come in the field with JAM that means Jinnah (Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of Pakistan), Azam Khan (SP member) and Mukhtar (jailed mafia don and MLA Mukhtar Ansari). While Yogi Ji’s ‘JAM’ means Jan Dhan bank accounts, Aadhaar cards and Mobile for everyone to eradicate corruption from its root. Now, people have to decide which JAM they would prefer.”
He also publicly endorsed Yogi’s leadership and portrayed him as the next CM after polls. “I’m appealing you to give all Vidhan Sabha seats in Azamgarh to BJP so that Yogi could be made CM again,” Shah added.

Laying the foundation of a university, Shah suggested it be named after Hindu warrior king and Rajbhar icon Suheldev, who fought battles to oust the invaders, in a clear message to woo the Rajbhar community and politically decimate the nascent OP Rajbhar-Samajwadi Party electoral alliance.
Yogi announced that the university in Azamgarh will be named after Maharaja Suheldev. “On behalf of the state government, I announce that the state university in Azamgarh will be named after Maharaja Suheldev,” he said.
“A place which had turned into a hub of extremists and a harbour for terror modules in the past several years, is now going to be converted into a place of Goddess Saraswati. The era of change for Azamgarh, which had converted into ‘adda’ (den) of anti-national activities, has begun,” Shah said.
“We expected seats from Azamgarh in the 2014 and 2019 parliamentary and 2017 assembly polls but failed to get them. Now, nobody’s account except BJP should be opened from here,” he said.
The minister also said that today Uttar Pradesh is free of both the menace of mafia and mosquitoes.
