Addressing a rally, Adityanath remarked in Hindi that the three parties who used to be arch rivals of one another till recently have now flocked together like snakes, scorpions and frogs do when there is a flood.

He further said that he along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi clamped down on the ‘loot’ shop run by ‘Bua-babua’, (in an apparent reference to Mayawati and Akhilesh). To counter this siege, they then joined hands with the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD).

He proudly announced, “The public on May 23 will close this shop too.”

Adityanath has long been harping on this ‘short-lived’ alliance while insinuating that the pact between SP, BSP will last only till May 23, when the counting of votes for all seven phases of the Lok Sabha will take place.

Earlier, at a rally in Pratapgarh, he had targeted the Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party alliance by saying, “Those who are challenging us in the polls will remain together only till May 23. After that the ‘bua’ (aunt) will brand the ‘babua’ (nephew) as a leader of goons while he will say that she is the symbol of corruption.”
