Bahujan Samaj Party Ramaipur, Apr 25 (ANI): Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Saturday said a ‘dalit’s daughter’ should be made the Prime Minister of the country.

Mayawati further said a dalit Prime Minister would ensure the upliftment of the backward and minority communities in the country.

“If you make a dalit’s daughter the Prime Minister, then UP will be famous in the entire world. If the BSP comes to power at the Centre, UP will occupy a special place,” Mayawati said at an election rally here.

The UP Chief Minister also asked people to vote for her party to ensure state’s development.

“Unless the BSP government is in power both at the Centre and the state, the country and Uttar Pradesh will not progress,” she added.

Mayawati also criticized Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh for criticizing her government’s track-record on development.

“The Prime Minister is not at fault. He will speak what the Congress leaders will tell him to say,” she added.

The BSP supremo further said the Congress party was nervous about the growing support base of her party.

“The Congress is very nervous about the growing support base of the Bahujan Samaj Party and therefore its leaders are resorting to giving misleading statements. It was the UPA government, which had rejected her demand for a 80,000-crore development package which forced her party to withdraw support to the alliance,” Mayawati added. (ANI)
