Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) over demonetisation, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati said that the saffron party will now fail to form a government anywhere in India.  “BJP ab UP ke saath kisi aur jagah bhi ab apni sarkaar nahi bana payegi, (Beside UP, the BJP will not be able to form the government in any state)” she said.

She added that “UP sahit poore desh ki janta BJP se unke Lok Sabha chunavi vado ke saath saath & note bandi ke faisle ka bhi hisaab legi, (People of UP and India will question the BJP regarding the promises made during the Lok Sabha elections and the decision to slash notes).”

Further criticising the prime minister for not being present at the site of the Kanpur derailment incident, she said that it is sad that he is not taking part in the grief of others. “Dukh ki baat hai ki wo (PM Modi) wahan (Kanpur derailment site) nahi gaye, doosron ke dukh mein shaamil hona unke mijaaz mein nahin.” she said. Over hundred people were killed in the Indore Patna express derailment accident near kanpur on Sunday early morning.

Earlier in the day PM Narendra Modi criticised the opposition for protesting against demonetisation.

    BJP is doing its more than best to get victory in up only because up has highest rajyasabha seats i.e 31 seats.. if it wins up election it will hv easy majority in rajyasabha by which bjp and rss will accomplish their hidden agenda of removing reservation... why only BJP and RSS have concern about reservation? u can understand easily.. many top leaders of RSS are heard saying reservation is big hurdle in establishing a peaceful society..... they want to take us back to pre consution era where they dominated every field of affairs... be aware!!!!!!!!

          People of UP and India cannot question Mr. Modi for the promises made in the Loksabha elections. Atleast not on the Black money within India, as one of his action in this regard is the "demonetisation" which people like Mayawati, Mamata, Congress, Communists and other parties oppose. lt;br/gt;No one can now blame Mr. Modi for inaction especially on the black money generated within India.

              For black money curbing, Modi should have used data of enforcement directorate to identify top 50,000 people who are evading tax in 100s of crores. The demonetisation drive could have been well planned especially government could have made notes of Rs.500/- and Rs.100/- adequately available in banks.

                She is right. Modi should considered visiting accident area instead of Agra.
