Lucknow, Jan 15: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Monday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he barely managed to save himself from getting homeless in Gujarat.
While addressing media on the occasion of her 62nd birthday, “Har har Modi, ghar ghar Modi’ wale Narendra Modi ji is baar Gujarat mein beghar hote hote bache. (Narendra Modi barely managed to save himself from getting homeless in Gujarat this time)”, news agency ANI quoted.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister was referring to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s much-publicised ‘Har har Modi, ghar ghar Modi’ Gujarat elections campaign.
Targeting both Congress and BJP, she stated “post-independence, it was Congress and now BJP, which have troubled every section of the society. Today in every state, there is an atmosphere of communalism and casteism.”
Mayawati further asserted that BSP has tried to follow the footsteps of B.R Ambedkar, which can be seen in their policies and schemes implemented during her party’s reign.
She also hit out at the BJP-led central government for Bhima-Koregaon violence, stating “Non-acceptance of holding a discussion on Bhima-Koregaon incident in the Rajya Sabha, as demanded by the BSP, shows the casteists attitude of the both the Centre and Maharashtra government.”
