Ahead of the national election and coalition talks of all sorts in progress, the BSP supremo Mayawati today ripped into the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh.
It need be mentioned that Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is the ruling party’s ally in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
She compared the Congress government with that of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and questioned, “what’s the difference?” on the issue of NSA being invoked in case of a cow slaughter.
Mayawati’s significantly sharper attack on the Congress comes in the middle of alliance moves between various parties who want to team up and take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP in the national election due by May.
This comes as UP BJP government booked 14 Aligarh Muslim University students under notorious sedition charges.
Mayawati reluctantly extended her party’s support in December to help the Congress touch majority after polls in Madhya Pradesh, where the BJP lost power after three terms.
