New Delhi, December 29, 2011
BSP on Thursday made a veiled attack on Congress General Secretary
Rahul Gandhi for his criticism of Mayawati government in poll-bound
Uttar Pradesh, where Congress is working hard to revive its fortune.
Blaming the Congress leadership for the state's plight, Satish Chandra Mishra
said, "Your leader says in five years I will change UP. When you could
not do anything in forty years, what great will you do in five years?"
Referring to the Rahul's statements in UP, the BSP leader said, "Your
leader goes to UP and says we have given money from the Centre for the
development of the state."
"Let me tell you Delhi is not your property. Delhi's money is not your
'jaagir' (property). It's not your money, it is our money which is
used for the development of the country with which you are running 150
projects in the name of your ancestors," he said.
Mishra said Central ministers frequently come to the state and "look
into the projects that how these bridges are made. Federal structure
of the country is being destroyed."
The BSP leader claimed that in 40 years of Congress rule, only 3,500
MW power was added in UP whereas in the last four years only, the BSP
government has managed to add 7,000 MW power through its own
Mishra said the Congress in the last 40 years, "did not gain mastery
in anything other than corruption. You defamed the country in the
whole world in the Commonwealth Games. You are scared only of the
elephant. You see the elephant in dream."
He said the Congress sees only Amethi and Rae Bareli in UP and there
also one after the other, central projects have been shut and people
Mishra took a dig at Rahul Gandhi saying that Congress should not
make laws under anybody's orders as the constitutional amendment bill
was defeated in the Lok Sabha.
