Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said in the state assembly that in place of focusing on cast and regional factors, parties should seek vote on development issues.

Akhilesh said in a statement, “Instead of setting your equations right, you should also talk about development. People should elect those who talk about development.”

Yadav remarks came on the last day of the monsoon session of the UP legislature.

Pointing at BSP members, he said they were voted to power 10 years ago (2007) and since then time has changed and priorities of people have changed.

“In the changed scenario, we will form government again (after 2017 polls),” he said.
