Lucknow, Oct 11: BSP supremo Mayawati on Wednesday took potshots at BJP President Amit Shah’s remark in Amethi that the party has given a “Prime Minister who speaks” and said the country needs a PM who works rather than a merely speaking one.
Accusing the Central government of doing nothing to control price hike, arrest unemployment and improve healthcare, the Dalit leader stated the Uttar Pradesh government is turning out to be similar to the one at the Centre.
In a statement issued in the state capital, Mayawati asserted she was happy that albeit late, the BJP chief had admitted the “bitter truth” that PM Narendra Modi is a “speaking Prime Minister”.
It was for very first time in the history of free India that there was a Prime Minister who gives monologues, does not believe in two-way communication and one who is using noted machinery to further his own personal and party’s agenda.
“At a time when every voice is being suppressed, the BJP is patting its back for having given a Prime Minister who speaks,” she added.
The four-time Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh also slammed the state government of Yogi Adityanath and said mere reviews of various issues by him was not going to help improve governance and end problems faced by the people.
“The situation in the state is going from bad to worse with every passing day,” she said.
