Mirzapur: Criticising UP Chief Minister
Mayawati for advocating quota for Muslims, the BJP on Sunday
alleged that she was misleading the community and also
insulting Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar, who was opposed to reservation
on religious grounds.

"The state government is misleading the Muslims by
talking about reservation to them," BJP national
vice-president Kalraj Mishra today said.

"Both, the Centre and state governments are talking about
15 per cent reservation to them, they should first tell that
this provision would be from which quota," Mishra said on the
fourth day of his Jan Swabhiman Yatra.

"Chief Minister Mayawati is insulting Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar
as he was opposed to reservation on religious lines," Mishra
alleged.

A poor person is a poor person and he has no caste or
religion, he said.

"The Centre and the state are trying to ignite communal
passions in the country," the BJP leader alleged.

He alleged that Mayawati was wary of senior party leader
L K Advani`s `Jan Chetna Yatra` and therefore she inaugurated
Rs 700 crore park in Noida.

"Her rhetoric of being a dalit`s daughter is nothing
more than an attempt to cheat dalits.

"BSP government in UP is an associate of the Centre in
corruption whether its MNREGA or NRHM," Mishra alleged.
