Palm reader predicted 350 seats for SP in 2022 UP polls: Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav said that a palm reader had recently predicted that SP will win 350 seats in the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections and form the government.

"All the Samajwadis said that we will win 351 seats in 2022. While going to Delhi on a flight I met a person who saw my palm and said that my government will be formed this time and we will win 350 seats," said Yadav here on Sunday.

"I have decided that we will win one seat more than 350.We will win 351 seats as we have a bigger aim," he added.

Hitting out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Yadav said that if "BJP can win 300 seats by spreading lies, then Samajwadi Party will win 351 seats by working honestly".

"This State is now leading when it comes to crime against women," he added.
