Lucknow, July 12 :Bahujan Samaj Party supremo and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati today accused the centre of ‘politically blackmailing’ the opposition parties.
Citing examples of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and ministers of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Mayawati said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is misusing government bodies like the CBI, the Income Tax Department, the Enforcement Directorate and many more.
“The NDA government at the Centre is using numerous tactics to break the opposition parties unity and politically blackmail them. It is also openly misusing government machinery like the CBI, Income Tax Department, ED, etc,” she said in a statement.
“Malicious action against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and ministers of the Rashtriya Janata Dal is solid evidence of this. The leaders and BJP supporters have been given full freedom to indulge in all types of crime, and no noose is tightening on them. This is a matter of worry for the country and democracy,” she added.
