Lucknow: BJP leader Uma Bharti on Monday alleged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati is the biggest exploiter of sentiments of dalits and backwards.

"Mayawati, who is ruling with a feudal mindset, has exploited and misused sentiments of dalits oppressed from centuries," she told reporters here.

Bharti said Mayawati at a rally yesterday had affirmed that her elephant (BSP's party symbol) would crush opposition parties.

"I want to say that Mayawati's elephant is that of stone which cannot move. This elephant has no sentiments," she said.

The BJP leader alleged the BSP government was the most insensitive government in the history of the country.

"It is insensitive towards the interest of the people and the CM is not available to the public," she said.

She alleged maximum atrocities are being committed against women in Uttar Pradesh.

Referring to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's remarks on UP migrants, Bharti said "a person, who considers the people of UP as beggars, has no right to step in the state."

Bharti said her party would launch "Pradesh Bachchao, BJP Lao" campaign from December one during which around 50 meetings would be held in each assembly segment.

On FDI in retail, she said at personal level she was always against the Foreign Direct Investment and added torching foreign stores was the only option.
