"On the one hand, the statue of BSP-founder Kanshi Ram is being vandalised in a BJP-ruled state while on the other, the BJP national president is indulging in theatrics by sharing meal with Dalits, like Congress 'yuvraj' (Rahul Gandhi) used to do in Uttar Pradesh during BSP regime," she said in a statement.

Her remarks came after the statue of Kanshi Ram was allegedly vandalised at Ambedkar Bhavan in Gurgaon by unidentified men on Monday.

Mayawati alleged that since the Jansangh days "BJP's character had been casteist" and due to their "anti-Dalit mentality," the Dalits and OBCs have to face "irreparable loss."

"Due to this mentality Dalits were being denied the chance to live with dignity and self-respect, especially in BJP-ruled states," she claimed, adding conspiracy is being hatched to abolish the system of reservation.

The BSP supremo also claimed that the entire country has witnessed as to what extent the Narendra Modi government was anti-farmer as the "growers are being made to give up their land to industrialists."
