Yogi Adityanath claimed that the government has kept its promise. Mafia is not visible in Uttar Pradesh. Azam Khan, Ateeq Ahmed and Mukhtar Ansari are in jail."


Hitting out at the opposition parties, Shah said, "The previous governments in Uttar Pradesh were casteist.


When SP (Samajwadi Party) came (in power), work was done for one caste. When BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party) was in power, work was done for other castes. Modi ji developed everyone and worked for all castes 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vishwas' (mantra)."
