Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Sunday attacked BJP and Congress for “double crossing” the common man by serving the interests of capitalists.
Addressing a rally here on the eve of the birth anniversary of Dalit icon Babasaheb Ambedkar, Mayawati said, “parties like BJP and Congress are getting elected on the votes of the poor, downtrodden, SCs, STs and Muslims, but are serving the needs of capitalists without caring for the common man”.
Singling out BJP’s PM nominee Narendra Modi, Mayawati said, “If Modi becomes the prime minister, the entire country would be in clutches of riots.”

Attacking Congress, Mayawati said, “Corruption will rise manifold if Congress is voted to power again.”
Raising the issue of black money, Mayawati said, “the Union government has failed to bring back the black money stashed in foreign banks despite being in power even as corruption has gone up many fold.”
“If BSP comes to power at the Centre, we will leave no stone unturned to uplift the depressed and backward community as we did in Uttar Pradesh during my tenure,” the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said.
The BSP supremo alleged there was a “plan” afoot to cancel reservations to the deprived classes.
“On the contrary, BSP has demanded inclusion of the economically backward people from upper classes across the country for reservation,” she said.
She accused the ruling Democratic Front government in Maharashtra of “perpetrating injustice to the common people”.
Aurangabad is the home turf of Shiv Sena where sitting MP Chandrakant Khaire is seeking another term.
Congress has fielded Nitin Patil from the seat, while BSP has given ticket to Dnyanoba Jevrikar and AAP to Subhash Lomte.
“I have learnt that in Maharashtra, the common people do not get justice. Their complaints are not registered and if they protest against the injustice, they are cane-charged and thrown behind bars and cases are slapped on them,” Mayawati said.
She said all “injustice” would cease to exist “only if steps of BR Ambedkar are followed in like Kashiram did in Uttar Pradesh.”
She appealed to party workers to not fall prey to “alluring” manifestos of other parties “who did not fulfil even 50 per cent of promises they had made before elections.
