Lucknow: In less than a week after bailing out
the UPA-II during cut motions in Lok Sabha, BSP today
announced programmes to "expose" the Congress-led coalition on
May 22 when it completes one year in office.
The BSP, which had voted with the treasury benches on
Tuesday, will hold a state-wide "janhit andolan" that day, its
supremo and Chief Minister Mayawati said addressing party
She said day-long dharna would be staged in all the 403
assembly constituencies as part of the agitation "aimed at
exposing the step-motherly treatment being meted out to the
state by the Centre".
Mayawati said there was no doubt that the central
government was discriminating against the state and was
indifferent towards problems like poverty and unemployment.
Ridiculing the Congress slogan "Congress ka hath aam admi
ke saath", Mayawati charged the party with being hand in glove
with capitalists and said the "faulty" economic policies of
the Centre had caused inflation.
It is most unfortunate that people who have migrated to
Congress-ruled states in search jobs were facing hardships,
Maywati charged the Congress with having anti-dalit and
casteist mentality and said it was adopting "every gimmick" to
defame her government.
"The casteist mentality of the Congress has come to the
fore yet again with it going all out to create hurdles and
dragging in courts the issue of construction of memorials and
parks built in honour of great men and saints belonging to
scheduled and backward castes," she said.
