Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and President of Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav, is in the headlines again after leaving his government accommodation in shambles, after being forced to vacate. This time he has sparked a new controversy with his ‘cup and plate’ remark on government officials.
In a recent video clip which is going viral in Social Media, he can be heard insulting the Government officials with this comment.
Going out of bound, he has set an new example of VVIP arrogance and touched a new low in public conversation mannerism. He says, “These officials should know that the Government change with time. I have seen many officials cleaning cups and plates. The officials who are doing this used to clean plates in front of me a few years ago”.
The above statement doesn’t seems to be a qualifying one from a person who was once the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. He has threatened the government officials who let the media persons take pictures of his house after he had left it in shambles.
Imported glasses and false ceilings were taken down. Many imported gym equipment which were specially built for Akhilesh Yadav were also missing from the gymnasium. Plants, lights, and a few paintings and furniture was also missing from house.
These wrong doing leads to look back to 2014, when his father and founder of Samajwadi Party uttered a disgusting remark that rape is a “mistake that boys commit,” over the change in anti-rape laws after Mumbai rape case of abandoned shakti mills. His son, Akhilesh Yadav has now allegedly destroyed property which belongs to the state, and this is not an acceptable act at all.
He also indirectly mocks the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and suggests, “Show my room, show my temple and if needed show my bathroom also because Swachh Bharat is not possible without bathroom”. To be laughed at, this is the attitude of a former Chief Minister after he has been alleged of even taking out fitted taps from the government accommodation, which he was not ready to vacate willingly at first.
Threatening and demeaning government officials in such a way and directly admitting that how he used to mistreat them when he was in power, clearly shows to what extent he must have misused his influence. This clearly reflects how government officers were probably allowed to be mistreated under Samajwadi Party’s regime. Harm to public property is harm to the welfare of general masses and the biggest betrayal to the ideology of Samajwad.
Akhilesh Yadav surely needs to learn some good mannerism and set a good example as gen-next leader of modern India. He should also learn to value the governance system and understand that they are Government servants, not his personal ones.
