Auraiya: Dubbing SP as a party sympathetic
to terror outfits and Mayawati as a Chief Minister interested
only in amassing wealth, BJP chief Nitin Gadkari on Friday asked
people to vote for his party for good governance.

"Samajwadi Party is a party sympathising with goondas
and terror organisations like SIMI while Mayawati is only
interested in gathering money," Gadkari said addressing an
election meeting here.

Attacking Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid, who
promised 9 per cent quota to Muslims, Gadkari called him
communal. Referring to Khurshid`s statement that Batla House
encounter had left Congress president Sonia Gandhi in tears,
he said it was indicative of the party`s appeasement policy.

He said the Centre was still dragging its feet over
capital punishment to Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru
because of this policy of the Centre.

On the 2G spectrum case, he said Raja is not the only
culprit but some senior Congress leaders were also involved.
Ridiculing Rahul Gandhi for tearing up a list of
opposition parties` poll promises, he called it an expression
of the young Congress leader`s frustration and said after some
time he could also tear off his clothes.

He also attacked Mayawati for "siphoning off" funds meant
for development and Samajwadi Party for its promise to hike
Muslim reservation to 18 per cent.
