The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday came down heavily on Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for failing to fulfill his poll promises and alleged that the latter, who has been selling her party tickets for money, has no right to question working of the saffron party.

BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh said the BSP chief is considered as the idol of corruption in Uttar Pradesh.

“Mayawati cannot question any other party especially not the BJP. Today, inmates of the BSP, who had quit from the party, are pointing fingers at Mayawati. Many leaders like Swami Prasad Maurya ji, RK Chaudhary ji have alleged that Mayawati sells tickets for money. Mayawati is considered as a idol of corruption in Uttar Pradesh,” said Singh.

Speaking in the same tune, Uttar Pradesh BJP president Keshav Prasad Maurya said that Mayawati was finished in 2014 and added that her expected trial of 2017 will be a massive failure.

“Mayawati was finished in 2014. She is trying for 2017 but her trail will prove of no use. People left the BSP because she has sold the votes of Dalits and the poor for becoming rich,” said Maurya.

“Her game is over. She is just over anxious. There is too much chaos in her party. The condition of SP and BSP is such that nobody wants to be with them,” he added.

Mayawati earlier in the day lashed out at Prime Minister Modi, saying that the Central Government has not fulfilled even one fourth of its poll promises made during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

She also attacked the state government led by Akhilesh Yadav describing it as a government of goons and mafias.

Addressing a rally of party workers organised to commemorate the tenth death anniversary of Kanshi Ram in Lucknow, Mayawati accused the Centre of being bias towards religious minorities and Dalits.

Asserting that atrocities on Dalits and Muslims are rampant in the states led by BJP, she called upon the gathering to bring the BSP to power.

    All irrelevant politicians have to take NaMo 's name. Else no head lines or media coverage. A word of caution to people of U.P., see what's happening in Delhi.

    whatever may be the shortcomings of Mayavati,she is the best choice among all contenders for CM ship in UP.She is pro-dalit and a tough administrator. Gundas and mafias,who are ruling the roost shall run away from UP in her regime. BJP came 3rd in Bihar,it will be fourt in UP,after BSP,Congress and SP.

    TVVReddylt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;There is no comparision between Modi and Mayavathi and Mr.Modi is taking dessions in right direction for prosperity of the Nation and electing his party members will help for development of UP and people should vote to right candidates by shunning the cast creed in the interest of State and Country.
