"We all know, remained in power for a long time but due to its bad decision and policies, it was thrown out of Centre. Benefits were not handed down to Dalits during the regime. It was due to Congress' bad rule that we had to make BSP and SP a few decades ago. If they had ruled well, we were not needed," Mayawati said.
