Agra: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati today warned the people against the "communal designs" of the RSS and the BJP and urged them not to lose their cool in the run-up to the 2017 Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.
Launching a frontal attack on the BJP, BSP chief Mayawati today alleged that the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre was contemplating the abolition of reservation.
Addressing a massive “Bahujan Hitai, Bahujan Sukhai” rally at Agra’s Kothi Meena Bazaar Maidan, Mayawati formally launched the BSP’s 2017 election campaign.
Accusing the BJP of rising atrocities on Dalits and minorities, Mayawati said Modi’s words should match punitive action against the guilty if he wants to protect Dalits from mounting atrocities.
She accused the Modi government of raising issues of cow slaughter and 'love jihad' to keep the minorities "under fear" as well as of being "anti-Dalit".
Mayawati also attacked the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh alleging that it was "run by goondas". "They (BJP) came to power on the basis of lies and false promises but their performance has been dismal," she alleged.
Describing the NDA government at the Centre as "pro-capitalist", Mayawati alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had forgotten all of his promises made to the people before the 2014 general election.
"The black money from abroad has not been brought back nor have cheques of Rs 15 lakh per person been issued as promised," she told a rally at the Kothi Meena Bazar ground.
Referring to a recent statement of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, the BSP supremo said, "The RSS chief wants Hindus to produce more than two children. They cannot even provide for two children. Who will look after them?"
"They (BJP) came to power on the basis of lies and false promises but their performance has been dismal," she alleged.
