Mayawati demands apology from PM Modi for unfulfilled promises
Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Thursday condemned the Bharaitya Janata Party (BJP) for misleading people and sought an apology from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his fake commitments, which he made during Lok Sabha elections, before making the new ones.
"PM Modi is making new promises in his election rallies across the poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, which is totally an attempt to mislead people. He made several such promises during his 2014 Lok Sabha election campaigns, which are yet not fulfilled," said Mayawati stated through press release.
"He promised to bring back the black money stashed abroad and deposit Rs 15 lakh in the bank accounts of every poor across the country. The government is about to complete three years in power but not a single penny has yet been brought back. Now, the government has even started to shy away from debating over the black money issue," she added.
Remarking over PM Modi's claims of a corruption free government, the BSP chief said that the Centre's silence over the delay in formation of Lokpal divulges its hidden ill-intentions. She also alleged that Modi government in Gujarat stopped the appointment of Lokayukta. "Both these entities are formed to fight against corruption effectively, but the Modi government has been against them," she further claimed.
What else Mayawati said?
- Modi has only been threatening the clerks and bureaucrats against the corruption, but have never acted against the capitalists.
- This clearly shows Modi government's association with the rich people of the country.
- Now the common people have understood their false commitments.
- These tactics will not work this time.
- BJP will gain no benefit by criticising the Samajwadi Party government in UP.
- During the past three years in power, the BJP-led government at the Centre has not taken cognizance of the poor law and order situation in UP under SP' rule.
- This clearly discloses the internal bonding between the SP and BJP.
