While she is on a special tour in the state campaigning for Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidates,Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo,Mayawati was more intent on projecting her party’s policies in UP rather than stressing on the BSP’s Punjab candidates. The UP chief minister also targeted the Congress and the BJP for poor policies but remained silent on the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD).

“ The Congress,BJP and other parties are responsible for the ill health of the poor in this state. They always come to power with the help of election funds from rich and later frame policies only for them. BSP has policies for all sections in society. With these policies,we have come to power four times in UP and are ready for the fifth time,” she told a gathering at Chappar on Sunday.

“Stay away from the allurements of opponent parties -BJP,Congress and others and vote for BSP. Don’t even trust the party manifestos of the other parties,because the things promised will never be delivered,” Mayawati said.

The UP chief minister then harked on mentor Kanshi Ram’s dream to form a BSP government in Punjab. “Kanshiramji hailed from Punjab and it was his dream to have a BSP government in Punjab. This dream could not be fulfilled earlier,but all candidates should make it possible now and all the facilities announced for poor in UP will be given to Punjab voters as well,” she said.

Mayawati earlier made the audience wait for nearly four hours. She was supposed to arrive at noon,but turned up at around 3.30 pm.
