Taking a dig at Mayawati, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday said although the UP chief minister claims herself to be an Ambedkar follower, she is allowing government land to be grabbed for money.

"Mayawati claims herself as a follower of Amebdkar but she is getting government land grabbed for money. Ambedkar wanted to unite and educate the Dalits and backwards, but Mayawati is even shying to meet them," Yadav alleged.

Even her own party legislators and parliamentarians find it hard to meet the chief minister, the SP leader said.

Yadav, who was addressing party workers in a function here to mark the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri, claimed that capitalist forces are against his party as it fights for the cause of farmers and poor.

"The capitalist forces are always against SP as it fights in favour of farmers, poor and village folks," he said.

Only Samajwadi Party could provide good governance in the state as it understands the problems of common man, Yadav said.
