Modi should have praised Army in Lucknow Dussehra speech: Mayawati
The Bahujan Samaj Party President said that the speeches would not do anything to stop caste exploitation and victimization of Dalits instead it required pro-active approach of the Centre towards implementation of the ideals of Baba Saheb Ambedkar
Lucknow: Dubbing Prime Minister Narendra Modi as self-obsessed person, the BSP Supremo Mayawati has said the former's speech at Ramleela ground in Lucknow had not a single word of praise for the army.
''Instead of inviting personal praise for the 'surgical strike' in the PoK , the PM should have complimented army personnel for their courageous feat,'' she said in a statement issued on Wednesday. Adding ''the PM intended to give political and election message using Dussehra as the occasion by self-praise through all the party banners and posters around.''
It was not a done thing on part of Modi who could have given the credit of 'surgical strike' to the army rather than indulging in meaningless rhetoric time and again, Mayawati said. It is good to hear that the India wanted to move on to 'Buddha' from the 'war' but the rightful policies on the lines of Buddhism would automatically eliminate the danger of war, she pointed out.
In order to combat social ills, mere preaching of humanitarian and constitutional duties would not suffice, the government at the centre required high degree of will power to bring it in practice,the BSP leader said. '' Had the BJP government shown will power, the dalit Una incident, Mewaat rape incident in Haryana, Rohit Vemula suicide, Dadri lynching, Dayashankar case would not have taken place in the country,she alleged.
