SP President Akhilesh Yadav said that the BJP government is deliberately harassing the weavers. He hates their progress and prosperity. The BJP government has attacked the weavers of the Samajwadi government by abolishing the electric flat rate scheme of 2006. The government should not do injustice to the people of weak society by sitting in the Lok Bhavan. Weavers will not allow injustice to be done when a socialist government is formed. They will be given maximum facilities.
Hundreds of weavers who met Akhilesh at the party headquarters on Tuesday along with Haji Iftekhar Ahmed Ansari, president of Uttar Pradesh Weavers’ Assembly led by Meerut MLA Rafiq Ansari and submitted the memorandum. Mr. Yadav said that the Corona crisis and lockdown are the most weavers in economic crisis. They should get old power facility.
The BJP government of the state is neither able to fight Kovid, nor is it able to bring investment to improve the bad economy. Electricity bills are being hit on the work and business of the state. In our time, the system of providing power to the weavers at a flat rate should be implemented again. #No_Would_BJP pic.twitter.com/AjEABZFQzL

Akhilesh said that 24 hours electricity was being given in Varanasi under the Samajwadi Government, although the power quota of UP did not increase. One unit of electricity was not produced in the BJP rule. In the Samajwadi government, an expomart was built in Bhadohi, a carpet market and a four-lane road to Bhadohi so that weavers would not have trouble sending their produce out.
The memorandum of the Uttar Pradesh Weavers’ Assembly states that weavers had been getting electricity at a flat rate since 2006. Weavers have come to the brink of destruction ever since the BJP government came. They have not got justice even after two and a half years of continuous efforts. The weavers are agitated by capturing the carpet indefinitely.
