She also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of victimizing and targeting the minorities and Dalits.

Referring to the caste conflict in Shabbirpur village in Saharanpur, Mayawati said Dalits were attacked there. When she tried to raise the issue in the Rajya Sabha, she was not allowed to, forcing her to resign from the Upper House.

The BSP leader also alleged that the BJP had conspired to physically harm her.
