BJP trying to come to power by creating divide in society: LJP
Semariah: Lok Janshakti Party chief Ramvilas Paswan on Thursday accused BJP of creating a divide among communities and said it was "day-dreaming" of forming the next government by promoting Narendra Modi, as it will not get support of other parties.
He also accused political parties of engaging in mud-slinging "while voice of poor people remains unheard".
"BJP is trying to come to power by creating a divide in the community. RSS has promoted Narendra Modi, but it knows that BJP won`t come to power after the (2014 Parliamentary) elections as nobody would support them except Akali Dal and Shiv Sena," Paswan said while addressing a rally here in support of party candidate Kunwar Singh Patel.
Accusing Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) of not keeping its promises, he said, "(before elections) they would say something, but after winning the polls, they would have a different tune.
"BSP is afraid of CBI cases and has failed to keep its promises to the public. They keep changing their stand," he said.
Paswan claimed that when he had held the portfolios of Telecom Minister, Coal Minister and Minister for Mines, there were no scams.
"But after I was ousted, scams have surfaced and ministers are going to jail. I have held the portfolio of Telecom, Coal and Mining," he said, while attacking the government over the scams.
He claimed that when he had said in 1999 that every poor man will have a mobile phone in his hand, "people had mocked me. But it is my gift to the poor people, that even a rickshaw -puller owns one.
"Two years later, I was removed from the Telecom ministry because I use to favour the poor, but after me, those who have held the portfolio are under the scanner," he said.
