Lucknow | Questioning the issue and timing of the Dadri lynching incident, Mayawati alleged that it seems like BJP’s move to take mileage in Bihar elections by polarising votes on Hindu- Muslim lines. If it succeeds, it will come to power there, she said.
The people of Uttar Pradesh should also remain vigilant of such a fundamentalist game being played under the garb of Hindutva culture, she said, warning that otherwise UP will also go Bihar way and lag behind in all areas.
BJP is out to use differnt means to divide Muslims in UP and has already activated Muslim leader from Hyderabad Assaddudin Owaisi who is also being used in Bihar, she said, adding that they can do the same for dividing votes of other sections of society.
Reiterating the demand for President Rule in the state on the issue of law and order, she claimed that the situation was so bad that a Dalit family in Noida had to protest in naked to seek justice.
She attacked the Samajwadi Part (SP) government for holding the first round of Panchayat polls in the state today on the death anniversary of Kanshi Ram to stop more people from coming here and alleged that it was also discriminating in extending monetary help to victims of criminal cases.
Mayawati took the opportunity to reiterate her innocence in the NRHM scam in which she was recently questioned by CBI. Earlier too this BJP government had tried to defame me by wrongly framing me in Taj corridor scam and now they are trying to do the same in National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) case with which I have nothing to do, she added.
