The BSP supremo warns her electorate to be cautious of seasonal parties as they are formed only to benefit Samajwadi Party, reports Venugopal Pillai.india Updated: Apr 17, 2007 19:57 IST
With an oblique reference to Beni Prasad Verma as a "barsati mendak," the BSP supremo warned her electorate to be cautious of such seasonal parties as they are formed only to benefit Samajwadi Party. She was addressing an election rally at Lakhpera maidan, in Barabanki.
It is pertinent to note that Mayawati's ridicule of Beni comes at a time when the Samajwadi Kranti Dal (SKD) president has been 'claiming' that Mayawati was his younger sister.
Elaborating her point she said that the formation of such parties was detrimental to the BSP as their sole aim was to eat into our vote share by fielding candidates and benefit the Samajwadi Party.
Again without naming Beni, the BSP supremo said I can't understand what he (Beni Prasad Verma) wants. "On one hand, he offers Congress to field him from Ayodhya, and on the other he wants that his son should contest from the SKD.
Holding the BJP CD controversy, she alleged that the SP and BJP had jointly produced the CD. Terming the poll survey wrong, she said the media has been managed by a few to project under rate us in the poll. "The results of it would be out only when you (people) walk up to the poll booths cast your votes to the BSP."
Coming down heavily on Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh, the BSP supremo said that the duo would not only leave the State, but has decided to 'run away' from the country to place where they amassed enough wealth. She claimed that her sources have told her that they were fearing route in the assembly election and can run way to save themselves.
Mayawati held the BJP, Congress for forming and running the SP government in UP. "Why even after the Supreme Court's judgment against the defected MLAs, the Congress continued its support to the Mulayam till the election dates were announced," she quipped. Mayawati expressed her commitment for reservation to poor from different communities.
About the BJP, she said that the BJP and the SP were hand in glove and were fielding candidates after tacit understanding between the two.
"I have also learnt that they have amassed enough wealth abroad by taking money from the masses even for smallest work," she added. Mayawati warned her electorate of anti-social elements who have planned to tarnish her image through handbills, CDs and posters.
