“In five weeks, @myogiadityanath’s Uttar Pradesh reduced the new daily case count by 93 per cent. Remember it’s a state with 20+ Cr population,” Santhosh tweeted.
“When municipality CMs could not manage a city of 1.5Cr population, Yogiji managed quite effectively,” Santhosh added, after two days of feedback collection featuring one-onone session with key ministers who were called at the BJP office in Lucknow.
The “municipality CM” jibe was in obvious reference to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, whose Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had contested the recent panchayat polls in UP and has indicated plans to contest the 2022 assembly polls in the state. AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh has been active in the state, targeting BJP government’s handling of Covid and comparing it with Delhi’s Covid management.
