New Delhi: Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday poked fun at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promise of hailing the good times if voted to power back in 2014, while campaigning for Lok Sabha elections.
Yadav tweeted a picture of the black hole, which was released worldwide by astronomers on Thursday, a first in the history of mankind (black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it.) and compared it with the BJP’s ‘failed poll promise’ of bringing Acche Din or good times in the country.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP had achieved considerable success with slogans such as “Ab Ki Baar Modi Sarkar” and “Acche Din Aane Waale Hain.”
This is not the first time that Akhilesh has taken a dig at BJP’s promised Acche Din, after Samajwadi Party candidates were declared elected from Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats in bypoll elections in 2018, Yadav had said, “Jo sarkaar janta ko dukh deti hai, janta usko sahi jawaab deti hai,” he said. “Acche din toh aaye nahi, janta ek ho gayi aur BJP ke bure din laane ka kaam kiya.” (A government which gives pain to the people gets a fitting response from the people. Good days never dawned for the people and so bad days have started for the BJP.)
Not only Yadav but other opposition leaders like Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee too have taken jibes at the slogan in the past.
Meanwhile, humanity got its first glimpse of the cosmic place of no return: a black hole. In a breakthrough that thrilled the world of astrophysics and stirred talk of a Nobel Prize, scientists released the first image ever made of a black hole, revealing a fiery doughnut-shaped object in a galaxy 53 million light-years from Earth.
The black hole is about 6 billion times the mass of our sun and is in a galaxy called M87.
