Lucknow: Opposition parties on Saturday accused
BSP supremo and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati of
resorting to "dramatics" by challenging other leaders to
declare their assets before and after joining the politics.

"Before preaching leaders of other political parties,
Mayawati should set an example by publicly declaring her own
and her family members assets before and after joining the
politics," UP Congress Committee president Reeta Bahuguna
Joshi said in a statement here.

She alleged that people would be shocked if assets of
Mayawati and her family members were made public.

"Mayawati had announced her assets, but had not
revealed her source of income," Joshi said.

Samajwadi Party said that BSP supremo was feeling
nervous as she had been exposed.

"Mayawati is well versed in the art of misleading
people. She had started raising fingers on leaders of the
opposition parties after people started talking about her Rs
88 crore assets," SP spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary alleged.
