Lucknow: BSP supremo Mayawati on Thursday charged the BJP and the Narendra Modi government with "discriminating" against marginalised sections of the society and not taking any steps to address their plight.
"The behaviour and approach towards poor, labourers, farmers, Dalits, backwards and Muslims has been rather autocratic and repressive, due to which the entire country is worried. The BJP, instead of improving the situation, is pushing the country towards tragedy," Mayawati said in a statement in Lucknow.
Mayawati said due to hate politics of the BJP, leaders of rival political parties were being attacked.
"These signs do not augur well for democracy, and it is very necessary for people to remain alert and organised," she said.
"BJP and company after coming to power do not want to be accountable to Parliament and are misusing government machinery to divert the attention of the people from the secret agenda and anti-people policies of the RSS, which is hatching conspiracies to prove that leaders of BSP and other political parties are corrupt," she said.
Mayawati said the BJP government's decision to change names of cities, stations and roads reflect its "narrow mindset, casteist, communal and fascist thoughts".
