Lucknow: BSP on Friday termed as a "political
drama" Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi`s stay at dalit
houses during his ongoing `kisan padyatra` and alleged that he
did not have food prepared by them.
"Though Congress yuvraj had a night halt at the house
of one person belonging to `kanjar` caste in Marodgarhi
village of Aligarh yesterday but he did not have food prepared
there and it was ordered from outside for him while for his
staff it was arranged at the house of the gram pradhan", a BSP
spokesman here said.
Terming such a behaviour indicative of Congress party`s
casteist mentality, the spokesman said that these stays at the
houses of dalits and backwards were nothing but "political
"But in UP it has been instigating farmers or organising
panchayats when the state`s acquisition policy is far better
than that of other states, it is this not indicative of
anti-dalit mentality", he asked.
