Move to sack 22 ministers before assembly polls laughable: Rajnath

LUCKNOW: Hitting out at the feeble attempts by chief minister Mayawati
to project a clean image, former Bharatiya Janata Party president
Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that the "transparent exercise to dupe
masses" would not continue any longer. The public is too clever and
seasoned to be misled by the image- building exercise he said.
"Mayawati headed the gang that looted and plundered Uttar Pradesh for
last five years and now her desperation to appear honest is nothing
short of pathetic," said Rajnath.
Every one knows that no one in Mayawati's cabinet had the courage to
do anything without taking due permission from the CM first, therefore
the move to sack 22 ministers before the assembly election is
laughable. Each of the ministers shown the door by Mayawati was only a
small cog in the wheel and has only carried out what she had ordered,
Rajnath said. He also questioned Mayawati's bid to give a clean chit
to her closest and most trusted associate Naseemuddin Siddiqui who
continues to preside over more than half the departments in the state
despite recommendation of a CBI probe by the Lokayukta. The BJP he
promised will set up a special investigation commission to probe all
scams committed during the BSP regime.
Rajnath also claimed that the number of atrocities against dalits had
registered an all time high during Mayaraj. "Maya government had also
failed on the front of law and order as its own MP, MLAs and ministers
turned out to be the biggest law breakers," the BJP leader said. He
also put the Congress in the dock for its minority appeasement and
said that it only shows the dangerous streak of divide and rule. The
quota within quota poses a grave threat to the unity of the nation and
therefore BJP is committed to oppose it with all its might.
Meanwhile, national vice president of the BJP Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi
charged the Congress with "plotting to come to power not by democratic
means, but by sneaking in through the back door". The party's latest
strategy and slogan "Yuvraj nahi to governor raj" shows it's
desperation to force their way to force themselves on the people of
UP. "The move would not pay off and the party will eventually be
ousted from Delhi throne as well," said Rajnath.
