One of the latest leaders to do this is Samajwadi Party's Rajendra Chaudhary, who on February 20 accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah of being "terrorists" who are spreading an atmosphere of fear in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
"Ajmal Kasab, the only among the Pakistani attackers caught after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, was hanged in 2012". "Ka (in Hindi) is for Congress, Sa for Samajwadi Party and Ba for BSP", Mr Shah said in Chauri Chaura, a historic town in Uttar Pradesh. Uttar Pradesh is at the top of crime graph that's why private entrepreneurs prefer to stay away from the state. He further said, "They will ask your religion & caste first, if that doesn't seem favourable to them, they won't give you laptop".
Accusing the BJP of spreading communalism in UP through their campaign, senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, "We need to end such acronyms.
I appeal to you to come forward and support the BJP to make the state free from parties who have only looted the state", Shah said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is often seen and heard using acronyms for everything- from his development vision to scathing attack on opponents.
By SCAM, Modi meant Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati - the main rivals of the saffron party in the crucial three-cornered Uttar Pradesh battle. BJP's repulsive thinking has been brought out.
The SP leader today said Shah "used to terrorise voters" from the dais and many times its own workers "get afraid of him due to his behaviour".
Modi, while addressing the election rally in Fatehpur on Sunday, said, "If this government is providing land for kabristan (graveyard) in villages, then it should provide land for shamshan (cemetery) as well".
According to the preliminary schedule being worked out by poll managers, Modi is expected to address a rally in the city early next month before it goes to polls in the last of the seven phases on March 8.
