Mayawati blames Congress's faulty policies for poverty and
unemployment in Uttar Pradesh

ALLAHABAD: BSP supremo Mayawati blamed the Congress's faulty policies
for the poverty and unemployment in the state. She said that Congress
ruled the state for as many as 40 years after independence and is thus
responsible for widespread poverty, which also led to migration of
people to other states for livelihood.

She was addressing a gathering at the Parade Grounds on Thursday. She
asserted that the state treaded on the path of development since the
BSP government assumed the reins of power with full majority in 2007
and followed the policy of 'Sarva Jan Hitaya, Sarva Jan Sukhaye'.

The government has cared for the interests of all sections of the
society despite resource crunch. She, however, blamed the Centre for
creating hurdles in the development of the State. She accused the UPA
government for not sanctioning the amount of Rs 80,000 crore as
economic package for the development of Bundelkhand region.

She also stressed that her government has send proposal of Rs 36,000
for the development of the Poorvaanchal region but the Centre did not
released the amount. She held Congress government responsible for
rising inflation rates that has affected the poor and middle class
section of the society. Her government's hope of developing the state
with the participation of private sector also did not find favour from
the central government.

The Centre created hurdles in the development of eight-lane Ganga
Expressway from Greater Noida to Balia. This lane would also have
passed through Allahabad. She pointed out that state had to grapple
with financial woes as the Centre did not released the funds on time,
which effected the development of the state and public welfare
activities. She also took a potshot at 'Congress Yuvraj' Rahul Gandhi,
who claims to respect Kanshi Ramji but his party did not deem it fit
to even observe one day mourning when the Dalit icon died.

She added that Kanshi Ramji led a life replete with sacrifice, hard
work and betterment of the Dalit people. We will never forgive Rahul
Gandhi and the Congress party for this ignominy. Taking a swipe at
Congress party's comment-- ' Mayawati satta mein aane se pehle thik
karya karti thi par satta mein aane ke bad thik karya nahin karti
(Mayawati used to perform better before assuming the reins of power
but after taking power she is not performing well)-the diminutive
leader blasted, "Earlier, I used to visit villages and cities and beg
for justice. However, with the master key of political power with me
now, I help in giving justice. I inspect villages and cities and
establish rule of law in the State."

She lauded state government for being able to maintain peace and
communal amity on the crucial day of September 30, 2010 when the high
court delivered judgment on Ram Janam Bhoomi- Babri Masjid issue. "I
made surprise inspections of about 75 districts and reviewed law and
order situation," she added. On the issue of corruption, she blamed
the Congress, SP and BJP. There have been many corruption cases in the
UPA government in the past 31 months summing up to a whopping amount
of Rs 20,000 crore.

During the regime of SP government, there was food scam and police
constable recruitment scam. She also blamed the BJP for adopting
double standards on the issue of corruption and black money. Despite
remaining in power for many years at the Centre, they did not take any
step to bring back the black money back into the country.

Further, BJP is also riddled in corruption in the state of Karnataka.
In the meeting, all the candidates contesting in the twelve assembly
segments of Allahabad and three assembly segments of Kaushambi were
