Lucknow: Terming the recent sacking of
ministers by Mayawati as a "drama", the Congress on Saturday said
the clean-up act by the Chief Minister was nothing but an
attempt to salvage her image ahead of the assembly election.

"She has been dismissing ministers blaming them for all
the ills facing her government. This is nothing but an attempt
to salvage her image ahead of the assembly election," UPCC
president Rita Bahuguna Joshi said.

Terming the exercise as a "drama", she said this would
have no impact at the hustings as people had understood the
gameplan of Mayawati who continued with these ministers during
most part of her tenure.

Questiong the credentials of minister Naseemuddin, Joshi
said it was ironical Mayawati was handing over charges of all
the dismissed ministers to a person who himself was under the
scanner of Lokayukta.
