chief on Wednesday took a dig at President Amit Shah's statement in Amethi that the party has given a "Prime Minister who speaks" and said the nation needs a PM who works rather than a merely speaking one.

Accusing the (BJP)-led Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the Centre of doing nothing to control price rise, arrest unemployment and improve healthcare, the Dalit leader said the government was turning out to be similar to the one at the Centre.

In a statement issued in the state capital, the (BSP) chief said she was happy that albeit late, the chief had admitted the "bitter truth" that PM was a "speaking Prime Minister".

She added it was for the first time in the history of free India that there was a Prime Minister who gives monologues, does not believe in two-way communication and one who misuses government machinery to further his own personal and party's agenda.

"At a time when every voice is being suppressed, the is patting its back for having given a Prime Minister who speaks," she said.

The four-time Chief Minister of also slammed the state government of and said mere reviews of various issues by him was not going to help improve governance and end problems faced by the people.

"The situation in the state is going from bad to worse with every passing day," she said.
