Seeking to counter the offensive launched by Rahul Gandhi, BSP supremo Mayawati on Sunday accused the Congress of trying to divert attention of the people from corruption and price rise with its "drama" and directed her party workers to reach out to the people to "expose" the tactics.
Mayawati, while holding a meeting of party officer bearers, asked them to gear up for the polls due next year and get more people in the party fold and also made some changes in the organisation.
The Uttar Pradesh chief minister directed party workers to reach out to the masses and counter opposition propaganda against the BSP. "To divert attention of people from corruption and price rise, which was a gift of faulty economic policies of the UPA government, Congress is involved in enacting 'natak' and people should be made aware about it.
"Had the centre accepted the state's request of providing special economic package of R80,000 crore, the face of Bundelkhand and Poorvanchal would have different," Mayawati said.
