The Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Sunday accused Narendra Modi government at the Centre of privatising works of its various ministries so as to deny the benefits of reservation in jobs to scheduled castes and other backward classes.

“Under a conspiracy, BJP government at the Centre is privatising the works of its main ministries so as to deny you the benefits of reservation,” she said addressing a party’s election rally at M A Stadium here. “There is no reservation for you in private sector,” she said, reminding people that the benefits of reservation are available to scheduled castes and other backward classes due to the efforts of Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar

She cautioned people against false promises made by the leaders of other political parties including BJP and the Narendra Modi during the ongoing assembly elections. Narendra Modi promised “Achhe Din” (good days) and bringing back black money stashed abroad within 100 days. However, even after the formation of their government six months ago, no steps have been taken in fulfilling these promises made to the people, she added.

The BSP leader accused BJP government at the Centre being run by capitalists. During the last six months, all amendments brought by it to various legislations in the parliament favour only the capitalists, she said.

She appealed the people to vote for BSP candidates during assembly elections in the state to fulfill their slogan: “Jo Jameen Sarkari Hair, Won Jameen Humari Hair (The land which belong to the stare is ours).”

The BSP leader also criticized successive state governments for the present situation in Jammu & Kashmir.
