Deputy CM responds the following day to the “chhapamaar” jab: SP deceiving people


A day after Leader of the Opposition and SP President Akhilesh Yadav referred to Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak as a “chhapamaar mantri” and questioned whether his surprise visits to hospitals were producing any results, Pathak claimed on Wednesday that SP leaders were deceiving the public because they did not leave their “air-conditioned” rooms.

On the third day of the monsoon session of the UP Assembly, the deputy chief minister Brajesh Pathak stood up and began to speak about how the SP leader was misinforming the public. SP MLAs, on the other hand, said that if Pathak had something to say, he ought to have said it yesterday. Akhilesh stated, “Kal mukhya mantri bol chuke hain, kya baat hai CM aur Deputy CM mein tal mel nahi hai,” in a conversation with Assembly Speaker Satish Mahana. (The Chief Minister spoke on the subject yesterday. Are the CM and the Deputy CM not in coordination?

However, Pathak can speak as a Minister to make his argument, according to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Khanna. The lawmakers, led by Akhilesh, left the House as the Speaker pleaded with the SP MLAs to at least hear what Pathak had to say.

Pathak claimed he had a premonition that SP leaders would bolt because they were unable to listen. Pathak criticised the SP leader for calling someone “chhapamaar mantri” and claimed that his language was worse than “sadak chhaap” language. “Om Prakash Rajbhar, a leader in the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, showed the SP chairman the mirror after the SP chief claimed that he never leaves an air-conditioned chamber. The SP leaders are fooling the public by remaining in their air-conditioned apartments, he continued.

He stated that he would visit each of the state’s nearly 20,000 sub-centers, 167 district hospitals, 873 community health centres, and 3,650 primary health centres to determine whether or not doctors were on duty and whether patients were receiving enough medication.

He claimed that every day, government hospitals treat roughly 1.2 lakh patients.
