‘Baba Bulldozer’ Will Be Gone: Akhilesh

Amid the ongoing polling for the third phase of the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav took a jibe at incumbent Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday by calling him “Baba Bulldozer” and said that “Baba” will lose election just like contentious farm laws were withdrawn.

“BJP leaders are now learning abcd, I want to tell them, “agar Kaka chale gaye toh Baba bhi chale jaenge” (if black farm laws were taken back, CM Yogi will also go back),” said Yadav while addressing a raaly in Rudauli of Ayodhya district.
Akhilesh further said, “He (Yogi Adityanath) changed the name of everything. Till now we were calling him “Baba Chief Minister” but today one of the reputed English newspapers called him “Baba Bulldozer”. I have not kept this name, this name was kept by a reputed English newspaper. And the time the vote is held, the government will change.”

“Bulldozer” is a reference to the action taken by the Yogi government to vacate illegally occupied land and properties using the machine Bulldozer.
