BSP to "expose" UPA-II after bailing out Govt in Lok Sabha
In less than a week after bailing out the UPA-II during cut motions in Lok Sabha, BSP today announced programmes to "expose" the Congress-led coalition on May 22 when it completes one year in office.
The BSP, which had voted with the treasury benches on Tuesday, will hold a state-wide "janhit andolan" that day, its supremo and Chief Minister Mayawati said addressing party workers here.
She said day-long dharna would be staged in all the 403 assembly constituencies as part of the agitation "aimed at exposing the step-motherly treatment being meted out to the state by the Centre".
Mayawati said there was no doubt that the central government was discriminating against the state and was indifferent towards problems like poverty and unemployment.
Ridiculing the Congress slogan "Congress ka hath aam admi ke saath", Mayawati charged the party with being hand in glove with capitalists and said the "faulty" economic policies of the Centre had caused inflation.
It is most unfortunate that people who have migrated to Congress-ruled states in search jobs were facing hardships, she said.
Maywati charged the Congress with having anti-dalit and casteist mentality and said it was adopting "every gimmick" to defame her government.
"The casteist mentality of the Congress has come to the fore yet again with it going all out to create hurdles and dragging in courts the issue of construction of memorials and parks built in honour of great men and saints belonging to scheduled and backward castes," she said.
