Mayawati insulting Ambedkar by glorifying him: BJP
Lucknow, Apr 11: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today alleged that
Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati is insulting Dr B R Ambedkarby
glorifying him against his ideologies.
BJP national spokesperson Ramnath Kovind said here that Ms Mayawati
has insulted Dr Ambedkar by making his statue as he never supported
''During his lifetime, Dr Ambedkar never accepted even a garland
during any function and always opposed glorification through statues
and other things,'' he claimed.
Talking to mediapersons, Mr Kovind, a former Rajya Sabha member, said
the ideology of collecting money and constructing statues by the
present BSP government was an insult to Dr Ambedkar and similarly it
has nothing to do with the promises made by Ms Mayawati when she came
to power in 2007.
''Corruption and law and order situation have worsened in the state
during the Mayawati regime and people have now started saying that the
previous Samajwadi Party government was better than the present
The BJP leader also took exception to the Mayawati government
concentrating on statues and parks while the issue of law and order,
corruption and development have been put on the back burner.
The national spokesperson also opposed the Rangnath Mishra
Commission's recommendation to give reservation to the minorities
saying that it would dent in the rights of the Schedule Caste,
Schedule Tribes and the Other Backward Classes in the country.
Christian in SC/SC quota would have a negative impact on the political
system in the country in future,'' he added.
''A statement by a US diplomat that nuclear policies of both India and
Pakistan are same and was concerning, proves that the UPA government
has failed in its foreign policy,'' Mr Kovind added.
