Jan 15: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Sunday attacked BJP government for targeting her family members ahead of Uttar Pradesh polls.
“Just when the elections are near, the BJP government has found faults in the businesses run by my family members. If there were glaring irregularities, then why did they remain silent for two-and-a-half years? Their conspiracy against me will boomerang on them,” Mayawati said.
Earlier in December, the Enforcement Directorate had found out cash deposits around Rs 104 crore in an account which belonged to BSP and Rs 1.43 crore in Mayawati’s brother Anand in a branch of United Bank of India.
She further asked the BJP to reveal the bank account details of its leaders 10 months before the November 8 decision was announced.
Mayawati said, “It has been more than 50 days post demonetization and yet the PM has not spoken on how much black money has been recovered”.
“BJP should be ready to face the consequences of their decision in Uttar Pradesh polls that has rendered 90 per cent people Kangaal,” the BSP chief added.
Mayawati also said that Modi government is unable to fulfil their promises and has “lost the moral ground”.
