BJP leader Jaitley flays UP Chief Minister Mayawati for misgovernance
Varanasi, Thu, 09 Feb 2012 ANI
Varanasi/ Azamgarh, Feb 9 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
leader Arun Jaitley has flayed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati
for misgovernance over the last five years.
"The five years of the government (Bahujan Samaj Party) were only
involved in extorting money; Corruption was deep-rooted in the
structure of the government," Jaitley told a gathering here.
"The chief minister and ministers are full of ego, the public cannot
approach them, and even the minister and the legislators cannot
approach the chief minister. They also worked towards dividing the
society," Jaitley added.
Jaitley further accused the United Progressive Alliance (UPA)
Government of seeing the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls as an
opportunity to re-establish their foothold.
"The UPA coalition has become a supporter of its own numbers. A few
their associates often drag them into a big fix, and that is why they
are watching Uttar Pradesh to complete their mathematics," Jaitley
Meanwhile, a key aide of anti-graft activist Anna Hazare, Manish
Sisodia, has accused the Congress of being more worried about money
going into the pockets of rival parties.
"They (Congress) are sad about the fact that for last 21 years, the
people of Uttar Pradesh are being looted by the BSP, the SP and the
BJP, and not by them. Congress is not at all worried that Uttar
Pradesh is being looted, Congress is not worried that Uttar Pradesh is
filled with corruption," Sisodia added.
On the Samajwadi Party (SP), Sisodia said they are well aware of the
fact that if their party comes to power, the crime rate in the state
will touch new heights.
"SP chief Mulayam Singh is aware and his whole party is aware, that if
their party forms the next government, then what will be the condition
of Uttar Pradesh. That is why he has assured women in advance that
they should not worry even if they are raped, and added that his
government will provide them with jobs," Sisodia added.
The Uttar Pradesh polls are being viewed as an opportunity for major
parties to re-establish their foothold in the country's fifth largest
and most populous state.
A new 403-member state assembly will be elected in March. The poll
results will broadly indicate trends for the 2014 general elections.
