ALSO READElection Results 2017: 'Modi'fied UP breaks Hindu-Muslim matrix EVM row: Mayawati must worry over why Dalits didn't vote for her, says BJP Vote BSP or suffer atrocities: Mayawati to minorities, Dalits PM Modi, Mayawati trade barbs Cow protection: Govt lenient on people harassing poor Hindus, says Mayawati
BSP supremo Mayawati today charged the BJP and the Narendra Modi government with "discriminating" against marginalised sections of the society and not taking any steps to address their plight. "The behaviour and approach towards poor, labourers, farmers, Dalits, backwards and Muslims has been rather autocratic and repressive, due to which the entire country is worried.
The BJP, instead of improving the situation, is pushing the country towards tragedy," Mayawati said in a statement here. Mayawati said due to hate politics of the BJP, leaders of rival political parties were being attacked. "These signs do not augur well for democracy, and it is very necessary for people to remain alert and organised," she said. "BJP and company after coming to power do not want to be accountable to Parliament and are misusing government machinery to divert the attention of the people from the secret agenda and anti-people policies of the RSS, which is hatching conspiracies to prove that leaders of BSP and other political parties are corrupt," she said. Mayawati said the BJP government's decision to change names of cities, stations and roads reflect its "narrow mindset, casteist, communal and fascist thoughts".
