Lucknow, March 26: BSP supremo Mayawati on Monday took potshots at the Bharatiya Janata Party saying in 4.5 years of governance, BJP has only done drama, especially towards Dalits.
Addressing a presser, Mayawati stated the Prime Minister paid obeisance to Bhim Rao Ambedkar in Mann Ki Baat but his mindset is the stark opposite of what Baba Saheb stood for. That is the reason BJP RSS was kept out of power in the past decades.

Hitting out further, BSP Chief said “they chant Ambedkar’s name but oppress those belonging to the category. It’s evident from the fact when Bhim Rao Ambedkar (BSP) was made to lose when BJP introduced an extra seat. BSP-SP didn’t come together to fulfill selfish needs but to stand against BJP’s misrule”.
Her remarks come a day after Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav claimed that the BSP-SP resolve was strong.
In recently held Rajya Sabha polls in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP bagged nine out of the 10 seats, with its ninth candidate Anil Agrawal trouncing BSP’s candidate B.R. Ambedkar by second preference vote count.
