[ZESTCaste] Maya’s concern for Dalits a sham: BJP


Maya's concern for Dalits a sham: BJP
Express News Service Posted online: Tue Apr 26 2011, 05:50 hrs
Lucknow : Calling the BSP government "anti-Dalit", the Bharatiya
Janata Party on Monday alleged the community in the state was facing
maximum problems during Mayawati's regime.

"The BSP calls itself the party of the Dalits. But we have all details
as to how Dalits have been the worst sufferers in the four-year rule
of the BSP," said BJP general secretary Ravi Shanker Prasad who
inaugurated a cartoon exhibition in Lucknow today on alleged
corruption cases of the BSP government.

"Mayawati should tell people how many Dalits were given employment by
the BSP government. If babies and mothers are dying because of lack of
proper medical care, specially among the Dalit communities, how can
the government claim that it has worked for Dalit welfare¿," he said.

Prasad added, "We will tell the people the BSP government is totally
anti-Dalit and it should be voted out of power." He alleged rampant
corruption and breakdown of law and order have hit the state hard.

"Even a month after CMO B P Singh was killed, no arrest has been made.
Riots in Meerut were also due to lack of proper police action," he

"BSP and SP are two pillars of the corrupt UPA government at the
Centre," he alleged. Prasad said the BJP would continue to expose the
scams. He said BJP's "Mahasangram" rallies held to create awareness
among people on these issues were getting an overwhelming response.

Referring to Mayawati's demand for Dalit representation in Lokpal Bill
drafting committee, he said the BSP should first answer some questions
related to the governance in the state. "We have no objection to the
demand for Dalit representation in Lokpal bill panel, but we would
like the Centre to take a decision on this," said Prasad.
