Ghazipur (UP): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday rubbished Prime Minister Narendra Modi's claim of ISI hand in Kanpur train accident and alleged that the BJP is used to seek votes by misguiding people.
"Our railway minister could not take care of Kanpur tracks and gave false report to the prime minister that ISI had damaged the tracks. I want to say that the incident took place in UP, at least I should have been informed about this... But no information... no truth in it," he said at an election rally in Ghazipur.
Ghazipur is the Lok Sabha constituency of Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha.
The first train accident had occurred in Kanpur on November 20, killing 150 people with another derailment taking place on December 28 and the two mishaps were later attributed to ISI operatives.
In an obvious reference to the campus row in Delhi, he said, "To the patriot people of BJP, who are showing their nationalism in Delhi, I want to ask what they have done for soldiers who laid down their lives for the country. What help did they give (to the soldiers' kin)?"
"Only SP government helps families of soldiers who lay down their lives," he said.
He said in the five phases of elections held so far, the SP is leading due to works done by its government and it's all written on demoralised faces of BJP and BSP leaders."
