Mayawati to activate Third Front attack on UPAJuly 23rd, 2008 - 7:06 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, July 23 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Mayawati has decided to take bull by the horns and want that she will activate a Third Front attack on the Congress-led UPA Government in the days to come.
In a hard-hitting speech, Mayawati said, “The BJP got together with its allies and formed a strategy to save the UPA Government. In the scenario of fall of the UPA Government, instead of suggesting the formation of an alternate government, pushed ahead for the general elections. It is clear from today’’s happenings that both these alliances do not want the ”daughter of a dalit” to become the Prime Minister of the country.”
BSP chief Mayawati also asked Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to immediately resign from the post after BJP alleged that Samajwadi Party tried to bribe three of their MPs for abstaining from voting during the trust vote. “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should resign on moral grounds. This is a black day in the history of democracy,” she said.
Condemning the incident, she said the method adopted by the Congress to save its government was a “setback for democracy”.
She also blamed the BJP for the UPA’’s victory. “It is not a victory of the UPA, but the result of the politics played by the UPA and the NDA,” she said.
The UPA on Tuesday won the trust vote by a margin of 19 votes after a two-day debate. The ruling coalition secured 275 votes as against 256 by the Opposition. As many as 10 members were absent or abstained from voting.
