New Delhi: Attacking Chief Minister Mayawati
for getting a resolution passed in the UP Assembly for
splitting the state into four parts, BJP on Monday said the move
was a "political drama" aimed at covering up "sins of BSP`s
"This whole exercise is a cover up of the sins of the
misrule of Bahujan Samaj Party in Uttar Pradesh for the past
four-and-a-half years," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told
He alleged that "it is a joint strategy of BSP, Congress
and Samajwadi Party to divert attention of the people, as it
does not suit any of them that corruption and crime be made an
issue in UP in the forthcoming polls."
Naqvi said, "The people of UP are asking what BSP has
done in the last four-and-a-half years for the welfare of the
state and its people."
He also asked Mayawati to name "four major works" done by
her government for the welfare of the state or its people
since it came to power.
"If BSP was sincere towards the state and its people and
their welfare, it should have announced its decision of
dividing the state into four parts soon after they were voted
to power in the state," he said.
Naqvi said his party stood to support the "public
sentiment" of freeing UP from corruption and crime. He also
termed the Mayawati rule as "a champion of scams" which was
now on a "spree of making announcements" ahead of the 2012
