Soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of 594-km Ganga Expressway in Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur district on Saturday, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati said when her government had first decided on an eight lane Noida-Ballia expressway, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was among those who had opposed it. She also suggested that people should be wary of such announcements made closer to polls.

“During the BSP government, an effort was made to come up with a Noida-Ballia 8 lane expressway that would have linked Delhi with eastern UP and help end problems of poverty, exodus and unemployment. Then the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Samajwadi Party all had opposed it,” she tweeted.

“Now, nearer to the elections, despite five years of a double engine government, meaning 10 years in all, the foundation stone of Ganga Expressway has been laid after bifurcating it into two phases. For how long would people continue to be duped by such selfish politics? People need to exercise caution as it is important to do so during elections,” she added.
