[ZESTCaste] BSP Accuses Ajit Singh of Being 'Anti-Dalit'

BSP Accuses Ajit Singh of Being 'Anti-Dalit'
PTI | Lucknow | Aug 25, 2011

The ruling BSP in UP today lashed out at Rashtriya Lok Dal chief Ajit
Singh for levelling corruption charges against Chief Minister
Mayawati, saying that it reflected his "anti-dalit mentality".

Reacting to Singh's statement terming Mayawati's support to Anna
Hazare's anti-graft campaign as a farce and alleging that "maximum
loot" occurred during the BSP rule, a party spokesman here said RLD
chief should first recall the "misdeeds" of his ministers in the
previous SP government.

"The RLD president who has earned a name for himself because of his
opportunism and party hopping is perhaps unaware that BSP has been
raising its voice against corruption since his inception," the
spokesman said.

"Before raising fingers at the BSP, the RLD president should first
recall the misdeeds of his ministers during the previous Samajwadi
Party government," he said.

Earlier today, Singh said that common man is not a "fool to consider
Mayawati government as honest because of its support to Anna Hazare."

The RLD chief said that BSP was the only party to vote in favour of a
judge facing impeachment over corruption charges.

"Mayawati's purification would be done by the people in the Assembly
polls," he said.
