Cong is responsible for Muslim community's backwardness: Maya
TNN | Feb 21, 2012, 02.35AM IST
HATHRAS: BSP supremo and UP chief minister Mayawati while slamming the
Congress party for its conspiracy of providing reservation to the
Muslims by out of the backward reservation quota said that Congress
itself is responsible for the backwardness of the Muslim community.
"After the country's independence, the Congress, which remained in
power for more than four decades, did not formulate policies and
programmes for the betterment of the Muslims. Now, at the time of
election, they are being befooled in the name of giving them 9%
reservation," alleged Mayawati.
Muslims know very well that Congress is again using them as vote bank,
she added. Addressing an election meeting on Monday, the BSP chief
also charged the Congress, BJP and their allies of hatching a
conspiracy to infringe upon the constitutional rights of the dalits by
ending the provision of reservation given to the SC/ST categories by
the Constitution. The BSP will never allow these parties to succeed in
their designs under any circumstances, she warned.
Reminding the people about the `jungle raj' of the Samajwadi Party
(SP) government in UP, Mayawati cautioned the people to remain alert
while casting their votes because if SP came to power, the goondas and
mafias would raise their heads again.
The BSP government, she said, had dealt the SP goons with an iron hand
and put the anti-social elements in jail. She also asked the people to
ensure the defeat of the BJP candidates in the assembly election
because if it came to power, it would implement its communal and
fascist agenda and minorities, particularly Muslims would suffer the
Attacking the Congress on the issue of corruption Mayawati said that
62 scams of Rs 20 lakh crore took place in the Congress-led UPA
government at the Centre. She asked why the party was not uttering a
single word on graft and price-rise in its regime. Enumerating the
achievements of the BSP government, Mayawati said that the opposition
parties were making hue and cry over the law and order situation in UP
but the fact is that the law and order is far better in UP in
comparison to the states ruled by the Congress and the BJP.
"The BSP has given the best government to the 'sarva samaj', it
improved the power situation in the state, increased the cane prices
from Rs 125 per quintal to Rs 250 per quintal and formulated schemes
for the all-round development of villages and cities".
She has appealed to the people not to get misled by the opposition
parties' propaganda and ensure victory of the BSP candidates with a
thumping majority in the light of the works done by the government.
