New Delhi/Lucknow, Dec 31 (PTI) Congress today hit out at UP Chief
Minister Mayawati for the recent sacking of her ministers terming it
an election "drama" and predicting that her reign will crumble like
the council of ministers there. "Such an attempt to fool the people
won't succeed. Voters are going to give a resounding slap (to BSP). If
the ministers were corrupt why did she appoint them in first place and
then retained them till the last? "She thought of removing them only
days before elections. Such gimmicks do not work. It is clear that
like her council of ministers has crumbled, her five-year rule is also
crumbling and she is not going to come back to power," AICC
spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here. Terming the sacking
of ministers as "drama", the UP Congress also said the clean-up act by
the Chief Minister was nothing but an attempt to salvage her image
ahead of the assembly election. "She has been dismissing ministers
blaming them for all the ills facing her government. This is nothing
but an attempt to salvage her image ahead of the assembly election,"
UPCC president Rita Bahuguna Joshi said. She said this would have no
impact at the hustings as people had understood the gameplan of
Mayawati who continued with these ministers during most part of her
tenure. Since the announcement of the Assembly elections on December
24, Mayawati has sacked 10 ministers. Four BSP ministers Fateh Bahadur
Singh, Sadal Prasad, Anis Ahmed Khan aka Phool Babu and Shahjul Islam
Ansari were sacked yesterday to "prevent them from misusing their
posts in the coming elections".
