Lucknow, March 16: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Saturday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of using public money for self promotion.
“Modi was busy mostly in laying foundation stones for various projects. He has spent Rs 3,044 crore on publicity”, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister tweeted.
“Instead, this government could have used this money for education and better medical facilities in every village of backward states like Uttar Pradesh.
“However, for the BJP, there is no greater emphasis that is needed than on itself.”
The tweets of the 63-year-old Dalit leader was in Hindi. “BJP and PM are hell bent on deflecting the attention of people from the failures of their government,” she further stated.
Mayawati warned people from falling into the BJP’s trap. She said these were mere tactics to divert people’s attention from the real issues in public discourse.
