Maya terms BJPs Ayodhya chant an election gimmickFebruary 9th, 2009 - 10:15 pm ICT by ANI
Lucknow, Feb 9 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati, on Monday said that BJP’’s Ayodhya chant were nothing but an election gimmick, as the party remembers Lord Ram only when the poll was around.
The BJP thinks of Ram temple only when polls are around. But, the public knows about its real face. Even saints are ridiculing the party, Mayawati told reporters in Lucknow.
What did the party do to build the temple when it was in power at the Centre? Mayawati questioned BJP-led NDA regime.
The BSP supremo also criticized the SP chief Mulam Singh Yadav and his newly found friendship with former BJP leader Kalyan singh ahead of Loksabha elections.
The Samajwadi Party chief is today holding the hand of the person (Kalyan Singh) responsible for the demolition of the Babri Masjid, Mayawati remarked.
Mayawati also criticized Congress partys stand on the same issue in same breath, saying that Congress was equally responsible for the Babri Masjid demolition in Ayodhya during Congress regime at the Centre.
The party was in power at Centre when the incident happened and it cannot shrug off its culpability simply by criticizing the BJP in the media, Mayawati said.
There is no difference between BJP, SP and Congress, the BSP supremo remarked. (ANI)
