Mr Rajbhar also did not attend the one year celebrations of the state government on Monday.

Even as the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh was celebrating its first anniversary on Monday but its alliance partner Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) was not happy with the government's performance and even kept its heart closed on the support in the Rajya Sabha polls to be held on March 23.

The chief minister said, "Today, one year ago, my government had assumed the charge of the state and it was due to planned and concerted teamwork of the government that we reached the last person standing on the social ladder".

Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya highlighted the achievements of the government, which he said is committed to the development of the state and welfare of the common man.

To a question about an ally venting ire against the BJP government, she said MLAs and ministers of the BJP will also open their mouth "as there is a difference between what they say and do".

The sprawling Lok Bhawan, which was incidentally constructed by in the tenure of previous Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, was lined up by drum-beating and conch-shell blowing folk artists in colourful costumes.

He along with other dignitaries also launched a portal against the corruption. documentaries based on the programs and schemes initiated by the Yogi government were screened in the jam pack hall.

"When our government took over the reins of the state, the coffers were virtually empty". In the past one year, nothing has been done on the ground despite tall claims and promises.

He said the BJP had been rejected by the people in the recent Lok Sabha bye-elections and yet it was celebrating completion of one year in office.

Aam Aadmi party (SSP) spokesman Vaibhav Maheshwari slams the Adityanath government by saying that "it still has not got out of the "jumlebaazi" mode propounded by BJP chief Amit Shah".

He said there could be many reasons for the BJP's defeat in the bypolls.

"But nothing is being done...they are not able to face the people", she stressed.

However, the Samajwadi Party attacked the BJP and said it had "not done anything significant" during its time in office.
