Deoria(UP): Former BJP president Rajnath Singh on Monday said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati's recent statements favouring reservation for the poor among the upper castes and Muslims were mere "election stunts".

"She has been in power for the past four years and took no concrete steps in this regard but now ahead of the Assembly election, she is writing letters to the Prime Minister demanding quotas for different sections of society just to gain electoral advantage," he told reporters here.

"If Mayawati is really serious in providing reservation to different sections, she should tell us how these castes will be adjusted and whose quota will be decreased to accommodate them," Singh, here in connection with his Jan Swabhiman Yatra, said.

Her recent statements advocating reservation for the poor among the upper castes and Muslims were only "election stunts", the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said.

Alleging that Mayawati had come to power in the 2007 election by making false promises, Singh said "she is again out to woo people with promises which she has no intention of fulfilling."
