Lucknow: Bahujan Samajwadi Party[BSP] supremo Mayawati attacked both Congress Party and Bharatiya Janta Party[BJP] at a rally of Mahagathbandhan for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections near Sitapur road in Lucknow on April 30.
Addressing a rally, Mayawati said, “ There is no difference between Congress and The BJP, Both the parties are involved in corruption whenever they are in power at center or states. They have done nothing for the poor of country except to allure them by their false promises which they never fulfill”.
Continuing her scathing attack, BSP chief accused Congress and the BJP for misusing the power of Enforcement Directorate[ED] and the Central Bureau of Investigation[CBI] to malign the clean images of leaders of other political parties.
She further added, “ Decision of implementing GST and demonetization was taken in hurry by the Modi government resulting in increasing in poverty and unemployment in the country. Also, the middle class families and small traders were the worst hit by the GST and Demonetization”.
Speaking at the mahagathbadhan rally, Mayawati said that Modi government at the center failed miserably to protect our borders from the infiltrators posing danger to our country.
BSP promised that if the mahagathbanthan forms government at the center, they will not deposit 6000 Rs in the account of BPL families as promised by Congress Party in its manifesto, rather we will ensure permanent job for weaker section of the society in government and private sector.
In the presence of Mahagathbandhan candidates from Lucknow on SP ticket, Poonam Sinha and Mohanlalganj on BSP ticket, CL Verma, Mayawati urged to the supporters of both the parties to vote for the mahagathbandhan candidates.
“We do not do caste politics like Congress and the BJP rather SP-BSP alliance talk about development of the country and its people.Development works done in the Uttar Pradesh and its capital city in the regime of BSP and SP governments is an example of our work culture” she added.
Mayawati mocked BJP for its Namo slogan. “Those who chanting ‘Namo’ ‘namo’ will be silent whereas those who saying ‘Jai Bhim’ will come to power” Mayawati said.
Mayawati’s nephew Akash Anand was too present in the rally today.
Supporters of BSP claimed that if mahagathbandhan forms the government at the center, Mayawati will become the Prime Minister of the country.
When The Lucknow Journal asked to one supporter, Maharajun, 80 year old lady from Nahunawa goan in Mohanlalganj about SP-BSP alliance, she said she is confused whom to vote and how. But further she denied to say anything.
Lucknow and Mohanlalganj will be voting on May 6 and the results for the Lok Sabha seats will declared on May 23.
