Former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has targeted Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government alleging corruption charges. The Samajwadi Party Chief tweeted a video of UP Jal Shakti Minister Swatantra Dev Singh on Sunday morning and alleged that there was rampant corruption without doing any work.

“Listen to BJP minister’s discourse, how is ‘corruption’ without any work, and how eating up an entire fund without work is a bad thing,” tweeted Akhilesh Yadav along with a video of the UP Jal Shakti Minister.

Swatantra Dev Singh on Saturday reprimanded the officers for finding dirt in a canal during the inspection in Jhansi. During the inspection the minister scolded officials of his department and was caught on camera saying, “Earning money is not a bad thing but eating up all the money is definitely a bad thing.” The minister was inspecting irrigation projects at Garautha, about 70 km from the district headquarters in Jhansi on Saturday.

Not only this, Singh got furious when the officials present on the spot said they will try to find out more in this regard. He said, “What will you know? See what you have to see. Crores of rupees come, but canals are not cleaned.”

The minister Swatantra Dev Singh also tweeted in this regard on Saturday and wrote, “Today, inspected the project of construction of feeder canal to fill Badhwar Lake with Gursahai canal in district Jhansi. Instructions have been given to complete this project soon before the arrival of the rainy season.”
