“Narendra Modi government at the centre, is spreading hatred and communalism in Uttar Pradesh and has failed to keep its promises for the state,” roared Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati today in Lucknow.
Mayawati was addressing a BSP rally at Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar ground in Lucknow.
Attacking the central government, Mayawati said that the BJP-led government is spreading communalism and hatred in the country and the cases of crimes against Dalits and minorities have increased.
“Dalits are being targeted in various parts of the country in the name of cow protection. Minorities and Dalits are being harassed, as BJP wants to convert India into a Hindu nation,” she said.
“Harassment of Dalits and minorities would stop in the state once a BSP government comes to power in Uttar Pradesh,” said Mayawati.
Uttar Pradesh is scheduled go for polls in early 2017.
