Lucknow: Senior Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav on Friday derided Bahujan Samajwadi Party supremo Mayawati, saying she is left with no work.
“ Uske paas aur koi kaam nahi bacha hai, nithalli hai (She is left with no work and is nothing),” Yadav was quoted as saying by ANI.
Yadav remarks against Mayawati have come hours after the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister accused the ruling party of flaring communal tensions.
"Fundamentalists and communal forces have been emboldened ever since the SP and BJP government came to power in Uttar Pradesh and at the Centre," she said at a function on the death anniversary of BSP founder Kanshi Ram.
Sounding a warning note to her electorate, Mayawati claimed that after coming to power, BJP and its associates have been moving about propagating that they want to make the country a Hindu rashtra.
"The Constitution has taken care that people of all religions live in the country and so the country has not been accorded the status of Hindu rashtra...if BJP and RSS turn it into a Hindu rashtra, I want to tell Dalits and adivasis that their interests will not be safe," Mayawati stressed.
