Seeking to turn the tables on BSP chief Mayawati, SP president Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday said Dalits were the worst sufferers in the current regime under her.

The BSP swears by the ideology of BR Ambedkar.

“Dalit daughters did not just face exploitation, they failed to get justice in the BSP regime,” said Yadav while addressing a public gathering in Gorakhpur.

He said the government spent time doing three things — counting money, constructing monuments and registering around 100,000 fake FIRs against SP workers.

On his controversial statement on Sunday about offering government jobs to rape victims, he said he was misquoted.

“I just meant if voted to power, the SP government would take the initiative and provide them support to get justice,” said Yadav.
