Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday said the BJP will end up politically “like the Congress” in the coming days for “misusing” central agencies against opposition parties.

Akhilesh Yadav also stressed on the caste census, which he said would be a major issue in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing a press conference here, he said, “Earlier the Congress used to misuse the central agencies and now the BJP is doing the same. The Congress is finished now. The BJP will also meet the same fate.”

He claimed that the Congress had promised to conduct caste census during the UPA-2 regime, but later “backtracked”. Yadav said, “We want the BJP-led central government to conduct a caste census. Many leaders have been demanding it. But like the Congress, the saffron party is also not keen on getting it done.”

When asked what would be the formula of the proposed opposition front ahead of the general elections, Yadav said it would not be disclosed.

“We will not reveal the formula of the opposition front, the aim is to defeat the BJP,” he said.
