Lakhimpur Kheri: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri while addressing a political rally that only lotus (BJP symbol) will bloom in the state after the elections.

Rajnath said at an election rally here in Kasta constituency in support of BJP candidate Saurabh Singh Sonu, “Whether it is SP or BSP government, both created only political mud and it is only lotus (BJP symbol) which can grow in mud.”

During his address, he takes a jibe at the SP-Congress alliance in his 30-minute speech and said “Mulayam Singh opposed Congress tooth and nail but UP Chief Minister forged an alliance with that party.

The Minister attacked on Congress and said “Arey cycle hi pakadni thi to kayde ki pakadte, aisi cycle pakdi jo puncture hai” (If you had had to hold a cycle, you should have chosen a better one, why to choose a punctured one).”
