UP Finance Minister Suresh Khanna Calls SP a ‘Party of Briefcase Thieves’

Khanna alleged that during the SP government (2012-2017) in Uttar Pradesh only criminals ruled.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Uttar Pradesh Finance Minister Suresh Khanna, on January 25, called the opposition Samajwadi Party (SP) a party of briefcase thieves. In the upcoming UP Assembly polls 2022, he is a BJP candidate from the Shahjahanpur (City) assembly seat. Talking to media persons during his campaigning, he alleged that SP is the party of criminals and gangsters.
Suresh Khanna recently inaugurated the election office of BJP candidate Salona Kushwaha from the Tilhar assembly seat in the Shahjahapur district. Talking to media persons after the inauguration of office, he alleged that during the SP government (between 2012-2017) in Uttar Pradesh only criminals ruled.
“Now the public will have to ensure that they do not allow hooliganism in their area in coming times. SP is a party of briefcase thieves. On one side there is negative politics, hooliganism and on the other side, there is rule of law,” he added.
समाजवादी का मतलब, अपराधियों की पार्टी, माफियाओं का मतलब समाजवादी पार्टी, वर्ष 2012 से वर्ष 2017 तक सिर्फ अपराधियों का राज रहा है। जनता को तय करना होगा कि आने वाले समय में गुंडागर्दी को अपने क्षेत्र में न घुसने दें।#आएगी_बीजेपी_हीhttps://t.co/pIqBXvegJv— सुरेश कुमार खन्ना (@SureshKKhanna) January 25, 2022
