SP sheltering criminals, will help Ansari, accuses Mayawati
Lucknow: In a hard hitting statement, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati said, ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) of Uttar Pradesh will definitely help the Quami Ekta Dal (QED) of dreaded mafia Mukhtar Ansari in the coming election.
“Withdrawing the merger of QED into SP was just a drama. SP has used Mukhtar Ansari in the last Rajya Sabha and Member of Legislative council (MLC) elections, thus SP will definitely help them either by fielding a weaker candidate against them or by some other means,” Mayawati said at a press conference in Lucknow on Monday.
Unable to digest
“The statement of SP leader that they would not entertain any person with criminal image is hard to digest while every citizen of the state knows it is not at all possible,” she added.
It may be mentioned that senior party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav on Monday said that party would not give ticket to any leader with criminal image.
SP sheltering the criminals
The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister accused SP for sheltering the criminals and said there was an alliance between SP and criminals.
The development rate of the state has also gone down due to this reason, she said.
The blue brigade chief fired her salvos at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said citizens of Uttar Pradesh have not got even a penny of black money which Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised.
“The condition of law and order in the BJP regime is known to all as they have failed in maintaining it,” Mayawati said.
SP and BJP are two different sides of a same coin and there is lot of difference between what they say and what they do, she added.
