Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati alleged that the Congress Party had given a raw deal to Dalits and OBCs in the country in general, and Uttar Pradesh in particular.
The UP CM charged Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi with “misleading the people” on the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS).
Ms. Mayawati was addressing a Dalit/OBCs BSP workers’ convention at the Ramabai Ambedkar Maidan here. It also marked the formal launch of the Bahujan Samaj Party’s campaign for the next year Assembly polls.
Playing her political trump card “caste” to the hilt, the Chief Minister claimed that the interests of Dalits and the OBCs were best served under her party’s rule.
