Lucknow: Senior Uttar Pradesh Minister Swami Prasad Maurya has mocked BSP Chief Mayawati saying “after expelling so many OBC leaders from the party, she is now showing ‘fake concern’ towards them.”
He said that it was intriguing that the BSP leader said she had the audacity to ask questions about OBCs while she did nothing for this section while in power. “It only shows double character of Mayawati who is eying votes of the OBCs who were always treated badly by her,” added the Minister.
Maurya said that Mayawati, when in power, cared about Mafias like Mukhtar Ansari. “Ironically, she used to call Ansari as ‘Robinhood’. She patronised him at the cost of the welfare of SCs and OBCs which is still fresh in the memory of the people of Uttar Pradesh,” he pointed out.
Taking a jibe at the BSP chief, he said ” Mayawati has exposed herself in the eyes of SCs and OBCs. On one hand her party is organising Brahamin Sammelan while the other hand showing ‘artificial’ sympathy towards them.” Adding, he said ” her political designs have already thrown her out of power and BSP stands no chance of revival.”
