Targeting the Samajwadi Party (SP), he said that merely making malicious allegations would not serve any purpose as the people of Uttar Pradesh and the country are watching who is the ‘B’ team of which party and who is. Still active in the same form.
The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) attack was a retaliation against the SP accusing it of colluding with the saffron party.
Paying tributes to party founder Kanshi Ram on his birth anniversary, he called for a befitting reply to his detractors by attaining the “master key” to electoral success.
The BSP supremo paid floral tributes to Kanshi Ram’s statue at the party office early in the morning and alleged that the party founder and his followers were treated with contempt.
Later in a statement issued by the party, Mayawati termed the BJP, Congress and SP as “extremely casteist” and alleged that they were anti-reservation.
“The country is still in the clutches of a casteist government and such elements and can get rid of this curse only when the oppressed masses hold power in the state and country through their constitutional right to vote. This is why BSP has been formed.
The people of the country, especially Uttar Pradesh, have seen the game of BJP, Congress and SP and their “extremely casteist and anti-reservation” attitude as well as “deprivation” of SCs, STs, OBCs, Muslims and religious minorities. their legal rights, he alleged.
He said, ‘People have also seen the difference between the words and actions of these parties, which proves that all these parties are the same. SC (Scheduled Caste), ST (Scheduled Tribe), OBC (Other Backward Classes) and Muslim community should not make the mistake of expecting any good from these parties.
Mayawati said in a series of tweets in Hindi, ‘ Millions of salutes to Kanshi Ram ji, who gave strength and speed to the self-respect movement of Param Pujya Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar by making the deprived and exploited ‘Bahujan Samaj’ a political force. The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said the “Bahujan” movement was strengthened on the ground by him. Under the party-led governments in Uttar Pradesh, crores of people were given benefits for their social transformation and economic emancipation.
However, the “neglect, contempt and conspiracy” against Kanshi Ram’s supporters by his opponents continues even today and a befitting reply is needed to get the master key of electoral success and power, the BSP president said.
Taking a dig at the SP, he said, “merely making malicious allegations will not serve any purpose as the state and the country are watching who has been the ‘B’ team of which party and is still active as such.”
The Samajwadi Party has often accused the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) of acting like the B team of the BJP.
The SP and the BSP had forgotten their past enmity and fought jointly against the BJP in the last parliamentary elections and won 15 of the total 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
But, their rapprochement ended soon after the elections and the two main opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh went a different way in the crucial state elections last year.
The split in the opposition worked in favor of the BJP which returned to power in the politically crucial state.
The SP managed to increase its numbers in the 403-member assembly after the 2022 elections, but failed to prevent the saffron party’s return to power.
The BSP had performed very poorly in the state elections in just one seat.
Targeting the BJP government of the state, the BSP leader said, “People in this vast state are suffering from rising inflation, poverty, unemployment and insecurity of life and property etc. due to the wrong policies and malicious activities of the government.” Dalits and backward are especially sad and troubled under this government,” she said.
He said that reservation for these classes is inactive and ineffective, the government is playing with the future of crores of youth.
On the upcoming local body elections, Mayawati underlined the need for extreme caution and asked her supporters to be vigilant. pti sub sns smn
