Speaking in Rajya Sabha, Mayawati also took a dig at Modi’s meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former PM Manmohan Singh over tea to resolve the political deadlock over the GST bill.
In an advertisement published in a Hindi daily, Ayub urged Mayawati to “initiate the formation of a grand alliance, respecting the people’s sentiments”.
Mayawati said the peace-loving majority and intellectuals in India are not worried about a handful of intolerant people becoming fearless, but about the fact that the NDA government is providing shelter to them.
Mayawati said this will be clear after an analysis of the list of persons given security by the Centre and BJP-ruled states.
Results of local elections indicate that the BSP is regaining ground in UP.
Bihar results have had an adverse impact on BJP and SP in UP, and BSP now has confidence that no power can stop it from coming to power in UP,” Mayawati said.
During the meeting, the BSP president reviewed the organisational functioning of the party in UP and Uttarakhand and issued directives for completion of remaining works before the 2017 polls.
“Once back in power, I will concentrate on development, and on making the state free of crime, communal violence, corruption and injustice. I have already got the memorials constructed during our previous regime,” Mayawati said.
Mayawati said the visit of Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi to Faridabad was a “drama.”
Two children of a Dalit family were burnt alive and their parents suffered injuries on Tuesday allegedly after some persons from upper caste set their house afire.
The court also asked the state government and the estate officer to explain why four bungalows were merged for Mayawati.
Mayawati cautioned people against the saffron brigade’s efforts to declare India a ‘Hindu rashtra’ “where their interest will not be safe”.
The CBI’s decision to question Mayawati was made after investigators allegedly discovered “new evidence” that indicated her involvement in the scam.
Probe agency claims to have found new evidence against former CM.
More than the anarchic and criminal elements in BJP-RSS, it is the Akhilesh Yadav government which is to be blamed, Maya said.
