Mayawati tries to gain foothold in Uttarakhand

Rudrapur: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo and Uttar Pradesh Chief
minister Mayawati is doing her best to break the Bhartiya Janata Party
and Congress monopoly in Uttarakhand.

"My aim is to unite all sections of society and form a government in
Uttarakhand , which has not seen the desired development largely on
account of the vested interests of the BJP and Congress who have been
playing musical chairs there," Mayawati said, addressing a a rally at
Rudrapur in the Himalayan foothills.

"We are here not just to participate in the elections. We wish to
provide an alternative to both BJP and the Congress in Uttarakhand,"
she said.

Branding both the national parties as "casteist", she said: "Because
of their casteist approach, neither Congress nor the BJP cared to
attend to the needs of the people of Uttarakhand or concentrate on the
development of the state."

She appealed to the people of the state, "to vote for BSP if they were
looking for development."

The BSP was the only party other than Congress and BJP to have made
its presence felt in Uttarakhand at the last assembly elections when
it bagged 8 of the 71 seats.

Giving out a long list of the welfare schemes she had initiated in
Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati promised to give Uttarakhand all that she had
given to Uttar Pradesh during her five-year rule.
