Control infighting first, Shah tells Samajwadi Party

IANS  |  Kanpur 

President on Friday took a dig at the ruling in for the "deteriorating and order" situation in the state, and said the party should first try to control the "infighting" within it.

Shah also attacked (BSP) chief Mayawati for not doing anything good for the Dalits and the downtrodden.

"The government has failed to control and order in the state. How will those who cannot control and order in their own family control the state," Shah asked at a rally here.

Slamming Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for the poor law and order situation, the chief said: "UP is very big Akhilesh bhaiya (brother)... first of all, control your family... only then will a bit of peace return to the state."

The President's remarks came amid souring relations between the Chief Minister and his uncle and senior Minister Shivpal Yadav.

Attacking the BSP chief, the President said, "Mayawati claims to get rid of the misgovernance under the SP regime, but will she and her brother reveal the actual property which they had after the death of Kanshi Ram ji and now?"

"The day she reveals her property details, Dalits of will understand," the BJP leader added.

He accused the BSP and the SP of doing injustice to the Dalits and the poor.

Lashing out at Mayawati for supporting the Congress, Shah said, "Mayawati supported Congress-led UPA (United Progressive Alliance) for 10 years. And in return Congress kept on insulting Baba Bhim Rao Ambedkar."

"It's BJP, which under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi preserved all the monuments and buildings related to Baba B.R. Ambedkar," he added.

He also said that only the BJP can do good for the Dalits.
