Accusing BSP supremo Mayawati of devising a gameplan to become the Prime Minister, the Indian Justice Party on Saturday asked all Dalit MPs to vote for the UPA government during the trial of strength in the Lok Sabha to thwart her designs.
"I appeal to all 119 Dalit MPs to see through Mayawati's gameplan and vote for the UPA government during the trust vote," IJP president Udit Raj told media persons in Lucknow.
He alleged the BSP leader, taking advantage of the nuke issue, wanted to catapult herself on to the centre stage to realise her dream of the becoming the Prime Minister.
Raj asked the Dalit MPs to scuttle her gameplan by supporting the UPA government on the nuke issue on the floor of the House.
The IJP leader, a staunch critic of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, said Mayawati was not worthy of the post of the Prime Minister.
He alleged she had been selling the state since she came to power and charged her with amassing wealth disproportionate to her known sources of income.
"If she becomes the Prime Minister, she will sell the entire country," Raj said.
Citing various decisions of the Mayawati government, Raj alleged that she was working against the interest of Dalits in the state.
Given a chance at the national level, she would do the same and would not allow the Dalit leadership to emerge, he said.
Raj alleged the Mayawati government was harassing its political opponents, especially Dalit leaders like him.
