'Save country from Amit Shah and Modi': Akhilesh's reply to PM Modi's 'SCAM' jibe

Auraiya (Uttar Pradesh): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday responded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'SCAM' jibe, by saying that 'A' and 'M in the acronym stand for BJP President Amit Shah and Narendra Modi.

Akhilesh returned the fire while addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh, hours after PM Modi attacked his political rivals saying 'SCAM' stood of Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati.

But the 43-year-old chief minister and Samajwadi leader said he has his own take for the acronym that meant: "Save Country from Amit Shah and Modi."

"If we have to save the country we have to save it from the politicians whose names start with A and M," Akhilesh said amid loud cheers from his supporters.

Addressing an election rally in Meerut, PM Modi had said, "The BJP's fight is against scam. Do you know what 'SCAM' stands for? It is 'S' for Samajwadi Party, 'C' for Congress, 'A' for Akhilesh and 'M' for Mayawati."

The Prime Minister also accused the SP government of diverting funds released by the Centre to help the poor and disadvantaged in the state.
