Reacting to SP chief Akhilesh Yadav's remarks of BJP cooling down after the first phase of elections, he said, "The public's response has been cold towards Samajwadi Party in the first phase of the election. People Bare warm towards the BJP and the party is going to the public with issues, our work is solid and our intentions are honest."

"I can say with confidence that the BJP will form the government in the state," he reiterated.

CM Adityanath countered the allegations of the opposition that the BJP does not have any real issues and said the party has issued its election manifesto and worked honestly on issues such as economic development and uplift of the poor.

Explaining what he means by the 80 versus 20 for the Uttar Pradesh elections, the Chief Minister said, "80 percent are those people who are happy with the state government's agenda of security, who appreciate the public welfare schemes of the state government. Those who like development. Those who got a chance to get their work (at government offices) done in an honest and transparent way."

Those people who have experienced a positive change in their lives and appreciate the state government's efforts constitute 80 percent, he told ANI.

"20 percent are those people who always oppose everything. They opposed everything before and will continue doing so now. They have negative thinking. They back money and crime and will remain so. This is how this election is that of 80 versus 20," he said.
