`Mayawati made Lucknow a 'city of dead'
Posted On Thursday, November 05, 2009
Lucknow, Nov 5:
Claiming big time revival of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh, senior
Congress leader and Union Minister for Food Processing Subodh Kant
Sahay said UP Chief Minister Mayawati had turned the state capital as
a city of deads and the statues.
''Lucknow could now be termed as a city of deads due to installation
of statues and memorials while lack of development or welfare schemes
for the poor people have forced them to earn their living through
begging'', he said.
Addressing a press conference here, Mr Sahay, who is here to campaign
for the Congress candidate in the Lucknow(West) bypolls scheduled to
be held on November 7, said gross misuse of public fund by the present
BSP government had given the Congress a boost among the masses as they
were now openly supporting the party to save their future.
''While Ms Mayawati has turned into a Queen but her Dalit supporters
changed into beggers in her over two year rule'', he said.
Talking about the irregularities in implementation of NREGA in the
state, he said it was unfortunate that Rs 2000 crore sanctioned by the
Centre for the scheme remained unutilised.
The Union Minister was, however, all praise for UPCC president Rita
Bahuguna Joshi, who was also present at the press meet, and even
termed her as 'Jhansi Ki Rani' for her fight against the Mayawati
government. ''Hats off to the lady for her fight against the regime
even after her house was burnt by the government goons'', he added.
Mr Sahay said the law and order situation in the state has
deteriorated and now people had started saying that Mayawati even
defeated Mulayam Singh Yadav in promoting the criminals.
Later in the day, he along with several other senior Congress leaders
would address an election meeting in Chowk area of the state capital.
