Story Dated: Sunday, December 18, 2011 21:26 hrs IST
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati's attacks on the
Congress party are borne out of desperation at its rising popularity
in the state and realisation that her days in power are numbered, the
Congress said Sunday.
Reacting sharply to Mayawati's attacks on the Congress and its
policies, state Congress president Rita Bahuguna Joshi said:
"Mayawati's speech at today's (Sunday's) rally of her party was a
reflection of her desperation in the wake of realization that her days
were now numbered."
"Mayawati looked jittery because she could sense the rising popularity
of the Congress party, therefore she was trying to train all her guns
at the Congress , which she sees as a potential threat to her party's
future," she told media persons here.
Joshi was also critical of Mayawati for her continued "blatant use of
religion and caste to push her political agenda".
Also taking strong exception to Mayawati's remarks against Congress
general secretary Rahul Gandhi, Joshi said: "Rahul Gandhi had covered
as many as 42 constituencies spread across 13 districts over his 30
days of travel in different parts of Uttar Pradesh, and that was
something Mayawati cannot match, hence she was getting panicky."
She blamed successive non-Congress governments including four headed
by Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party for the deteriorating state of
affairs in the state.
