No sooner the BJP announced the candidature of Lalji Tandon for the Lucknow Lok Sabha seat,BSP general secretary and the party’s Brahmin mascot Satish Mishra lashed out at him,saying,“Development works in Lucknow were done in during the tenure of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee but his representatives in state capital failed him.”

Tandon was Vajpayee’s representative in Lucknow. He is also Chief Minister Mayawati’s rakhi brother. But during the recent Assembly session,Tandon made the most trenchant attack on Chief Minister for wasting public money on construction of memorials and had even compared her to Mughal emperors. He had also poked fun at Mishra by calling the BSP as “Brahmin Samaj Party” and questioned his party’s true character.

On Friday,Mishra,who was addressing a Brahmin Sammelan of the BSP,also criticised Sanjay Dutt — Samajwadi Party’s candidate for Lucknow seat.

“The Samajwadi Party has fielded a unique candidate. Dutt will never return to the city after the elections. People have to insert advertisements in newspapers to find him,” said Mishra.
