Launching the BSP's campaign for the Lok Sabha polls in Bihar at Sandis ground in Bhagalpur, the UP Chief Minister alleged that both Congress and BJP had 'grabbed power on the support of big industrial players and brokers and ruined the country during their stints in power'.
"The country's economy will never improve if its policies are being influenced by big houses and brokers," the leader said.
She claimed the current economic slowdown and price rise were result of the policies followed by Congress or BJP-led governments and promised that she would pursue the policies which would uplift all sections.
Mayawati said her party would ensure reservations for the well-being of all castes without being confined to the Dalits' interests alone.
"It is high time the BSP should come to power at the Centre," she said, claiming that the Opposition parties were worried because of the BSP's "clean, fair image and performance".
