    New Delhi: Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav referred to the party's win in Ayodhya (Faizabad Lok Sabha constituency) as a "victory of mature voters' democratic understanding."
    Speaking during the debate on the motion of thanks to President Droupadi Murmu's address, on Tuesday, the SP chief said, "The victory in Ayodhya is the victory of mature voters' democratic understanding. Hoye wahi jo Ram rachi rakha. (This is Lord Ram's decision)."
    Akhilesh Yadav also addressed ongoing concerns about Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).
    "EVM pe mujhe kal bhi bharosa nahi tha, aaj bhi nahi hai bharosa (I did not trust EVMs yesterday, and I don't trust them today either). Even if I win 80/80 seats, I still won't trust them. The EVM issue is not over," he said.

    The SP chief questioned the central government regarding the ongoing controversy surrounding the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET).
    "Why are the papers getting leaked? The truth is that the government is doing this so that it does not have to provide jobs to the youth," Akhilesh Yadav stated.
    Speaking on the Agniveer scheme and caste census, Akhilesh Yadav added, "We are in favour of a caste census. We can never accept the Agniveer scheme. When the INDIA alliance comes to power, the Agniveer scheme will be scrapped. A legal guarantee of MSP on crops has not been implemented. Horticulture crops should also be given MSP,".
