CHHAPAR: Uttar Pradesh chief minister and BSP supremo Mayawati may be
here to canvass for her party candidates in fray for assembly
elections, but she seems more eager to talk about UP than Punjab. On
her second day of campaigning in Punjab, Mayawati devoted most of her
speech to counting her achievements in UP. When she did speak about
Punjab, it was only in passing reference.

Addressing a rally in Chhapar on Sunday, the UP chief minister slammed
Congress and BJP, but did not utter a word against ruling SAD. She
said Congress and BJP were the biggest enemies of poor sections of
society and were trying to deprive them of reservation rights. She
spoke of Punjab only at the fag end of her address, saying, "The rich
parties could try to intimidate the poor and may even lure you with
offers. But you vote only for BSP, so that the party can form a
government in Punjab."

BSP general secretary and MP Narinder Kashyap and 27 contesting
candidates from Sangrur, Barnala, Mansa and Ludhiana took turns
addressing the people, but they did it long before Mayawati's arrival.
