With the Mayawati led Uttar Pradesh government all set to complete four years in office tomorrow, opposition parties today lashed out at the "continued misrule and corruption" which they promised would come to an end after the Assembly elections next year.
"All these years she had been blaming and accusing opposition parties for the problems faced by her government to hide her shortcomings and this has now become her habit," Samajwadi Party spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary said.
"It has been undeclared emergency like situation in the state and all those raising their voices against the prevailing mis-governance and misrule are being crushed," Chaudhary said alleging that total 16 farmers protesting against land compensation have been killed in these four years.
Calling the Chief Minister a dictator, BJP spokesman Vijay Pathak alleged that there had been seven cases of confrontation with farmers during this period when engineers, doctors, government officers have been made to face bullets. While poor have become poorer, the ruling party MLAs, ministers and others have become richer by looting government funds, Pathak said.
Congress spokesman Virendra Madan said that people of the state have regretted voting Maywati to power and warned that the coming Assembly elections would show her the door as she has been totally exposed now.
