Congress hatching political conspiracy against BSP: MayawatiOctober 15th, 2008 - 3:22 pm ICT by IANS
Lucknow, Oct 15 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has accused Congress chief Sonia Gandhi of “hatching a political conspiracy” against the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) over the withdrawal of land in Rae Bareli for a rail coach factory.“It is a calculated move by the Congress party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. Sonia Gandhi and her party are misguiding people by projecting that BSP is against development,” Mayawati said at a press conference here Wednesday.
“If the Congress really wants development in the true sense, why is the party not taking up any development projects in Bundelkhand and eastern Uttar Pradesh?”
The Mayawati government had Saturday night taken back the land allotted for the rail coach factory project of the central government in Rae Bareli, which is the parliamentary constituency of Sonia Gandhi.
Mayawati said in order to gain political mileage, the Congress could not think of development outside Rae Bareli and Amethi, the latter being the constituency of Sonia’s Gandhi’s son Rahul.
