Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister
Mayawati on Wednesday charged the Centre with misusing CBI against
her in the disproportionate assets case.

Mayawati, while addressing party leaders and workers at a
meeting here, said CBI takes cognisance of the Income Tax
report in case of leaders like Samajwadi Party`s Mulayam Singh
Yadav and RJD chief Laloo Prasad Yadav but in her case the
investigating agency is trying to "frame" her in the DA case,
BSP sources said.

Her remarks came close on the heels of CBI telling the
Supreme Court that there was "credible evidence" to go ahead
with the prosecution of Mayawati in the DA case.

The chief minister cautioned BSP workers against any
design or conspiracy by political opponents before the next
assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh in 2012 through tactics
like sting operation and asked them to apprise the general
public against any such move, the sources said.

The BSP president asked the partymen to work for securing
three-fourth majority for the party in 2012 assembly
elections.

On the verdict of the Ayodhya title suits by the
Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court later this month,
Mayawati asked her party workers to keep away from any
controversy and not issue statements on it.
