Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief and former UP chief minister Mayawati asserted that both Congress and BJP have failed to deliver therefore voters shouldn't vote for them in the Lok Sabha elections.
Addressing a public rally at HUDA grounds here on Sunday, she said that both the parties are puppets in the hands of capitalists and do not work for the common man. She said that during her four terms in UP, her party had done inclusive growth.
Exhorting the voters to elect maximum BSP candidates so that the party could have a say in the government formation.
She said that the party had not entered into an alliance with any other party and was contesting all the 10 seats in Haryana on its own.
Hitting out at the UPA, Mayawati said that there was an apprehension that the government wanted to do away with reservations for SCs and BCs, adding that without correspondingly increasing the quota, more and more castes were being included in the quota list.
She said that the government had failed to tackle terrorism and naxalism, adding that it did not make serious efforts to bring back the black money stashed in foreign banks.
She said that if BSP came to power, the problems of the people in the state would be addressed effectively, adding that the BSP believed in work and not in releasing manifestoes to lure the voters.
Referring to Narendra Modi, she said he would be a disaster for the country. BSP general secretary Satish Mishra, state president Naresh Saran and party candidates Kapoor Singh, Chattar Singh and Virender Maratha from Ambala, Kurukshetra and Karnal, respectively, were also present.
