[ZESTCaste] Sonia trains guns at Mayawati

Sonia trains guns at Mayawati
Lucknow, May 19, DHNS:

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday kicked off her party's
election campaign from Varanasi by launching a blistering attack on
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for alleged 'brutalities' on
farmers in Greater Noida villages

She also took on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for levelling
allegations of corruption against the UPA and asked it to instead
'look within' even as she termed the recent Assembly polls result as
indicative of growing support for the Congress.

"We all are ashamed at the brutalities on the farmers," Sonia said
referring to the alleged atrocities at Bhatta-Parsaul villages in
Greater Noida while addressing a two-day convention of the state
Congress in Varanasi.

"It seems that a conspiracy is on in the state to grab farmers' land
by the government...we will never tolerate this land grabbing by some
people for their vested interests," she declared adding that the new
Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation bill would be tabled in the
Parliament soon.

"A state of anarchy prevails in the UP. There is no rule of law
here...there is lootpat ki rajniti (politics of grabbing) going on in
the state," Sonia said charging the BSP regime with 'creating hurdles
in the way of development of the state'.

She said that the UP lagged behind in development owing to the faulty
policies pursued by the successive non-Congress government during the
past two decades.

In a sarcastic tone, Congress chief said that the state witnessed
several 'opportunistic alliances' in the past and one such alliance
(BSP-BJP) was for running the government for six months and then
handing over power to the other partner.

Sonia sought to corner the allegations of corruption against the UPA
government. "Jinke ghar sheeshe ke hote hain, wo dusron par patthar
nahi marte (Those who live in house of glass should not pelt stones on
others)," Sonia said taking potshots on the opposition parties
especially BJP.
