However,under the rule of Mayawati the state has become a mascot of corruption,” Sonia said while addressing a rallyhere. The UPA government gave lakhs of crores to the UP,but due to the state government’s corruption,the money vanished into thin air,she claimed.

Many leaders are in “pain” due to our government’s decision of carving out reservation for the minorities,she said.
