Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Saturday launched a scathing attack at the BJP and the Congress and accused them of making false promises to the people of the country in order to win their votes. Addressing a joint rally with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav at Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, she urged the people not to fall for the false promises made by the BJP and the Congress in the electoral campaign.
In her address to the people, she responded to Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s Ali-Bajrang Bali remark, saying, “Ali is ours, so is Bajrang Bali. We want both, especially the latter since he belongs to the Dalit community. Yogi himself said that Bajrang Balli was a forest dweller and a Dalit.”
Mayawati’s BSP is contesting the Lok Sabha election in alliance with the SP and Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD). Uttar Pradesh goes to polls in all seven phases of the currently underway election exercise.
