ALL THREE political parties – the Congress, the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party were following minority appeasement policy out of fear of losing Muslim vote bank while putting at stake Hindus’ interest and country’s unity and integrity, alleged State BJP spokesman Hridya Narain Dixit.
While talking to media persons here today, Dixit said that the parties had been indulging in caste and community politics. For them, caste groups are simply vote bank and not human beings.
Hitting out at Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, the party spokesman said despite all premier investigative agencies finding involvement of the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) in the Mumbai bomb blasts and other anti-national activities, the CM had given a clean chit to the banned SIMI only due to the apprehension of losing Muslim vote bank.
“Brahmins have never been a vote bank in any era,” Dixit observed, adding that their job had been to unite the society and earn the highest level of knowledge and they were still into it in one way or the other.
Condemning former chief minister and BSP supremo, Dixit said Mayawati was further trying to divide the society on caste and community line for the same reason of vote bank politics.
He said that those who have never uttered a single word in favour of the Ram Janmbhoomi at Ayodhya, were now trying to woo Brahmins, however, such efforts would never succeed.
Meanwhile, State president of the BJP’s Traders’ Cell and former minister Ravikant Garg also crticised Mayawati for her statement on upper castes and Muslims and said that she had lost her mental balance following defeat of the BSP-supported nominees in the recently concluded civic polls.
He claimed that the traders’ community was and would remain with the BJP and no amount of fake promises and cajoling could take away the community members from the saffron brigade.
