Akhilesh Yadav accepts Amit Shah’s challenge for debate

Caste census in country will put an end to Hindu-Muslim conflict, says Yadav


Samajwadi Party (SP) president and former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav today said that he was ready to debate with the BJP but the issue, he added, would be development.

His response came a day after Union Home Minister Amit Shah challenged Opposition leaders to debate over Citizenship Amendment Act or CAA at a rally in Lucknow.

Reiterating the demand for a caste census in the country, the SP chief said that the BJP was not ready for this because a caste census, he claimed would put an end to Hindu-Muslim conflict.

Talking to mediapersons after offering tributes to the party icon and socialist Janeshwar Mishra on his 10th death anniversary, he said, “Let the BJP decide on the place and the time for the debate and I will reach there. But the topic of debate will be development, employment, youth, farmers etc,” he stressed.

Remembering Mishra, he said, “Junior Lohia always worked for social equality and the party will continue to follow the path shown by him.”

Akhilesh accused the BJP of digging out divisive issues to divert country’s attention from the real issues.

Shah on Tuesday had challenged Akhilesh Yadav, Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee and other leaders of Opposition parties to hold a debate over CAA.

Referring to Shah’s remarks, the former CM said the kind of language used by the BJP leader did not behove a politician. He pointed out the SP was not the only party to oppose the CAA but even common citizens, including women and children, were on roads against the ‘discriminatory’ law.

“How long will the BJP continue to discriminate against citizens on the basis of religion?” Yadav questioned and said, “The BJP cannot quell people’s voice by dint of its brute majority.”
