On Monday, BSP chief Mayawati criticised the Modi government over the growing violence in the country under the banner of cow protection. She took a jibe at the BJP government saying innocent persons have lost their lives in the name of cow protection and asked if this was the change promised by the ruling party.
Additionally, she also charged the government for having failed to acknowledge issues such as poverty, inflation, illiteracy, unemployment and communal clashes.
“It is because of the Modi government that the saffron brigade has perpetrated the reign of terror…several innocent Muslims and Dalits have lost their lives in the name of gau raksha…is this how the country is changing for the BJP,” she said.
She said that as Modi government finishes three years in power, its real status can be explained by the worsening conditions of the lives of crores of poor people, deprived, farmers, labourers, unemployed, small and medium traders as well as Dalits, adivasis and religious minorities.
Accusing that the Modi government works less than its claims, Mayawati added that money is being spent like water to brag about government achievements and mislead people.
“But they do not have an answer to a simple question being raised by the common people as to why this government has totally failed to address issues like poverty, inflation, illiteracy, unemployment and communal and caste clashes and violence”, she said.
“Crores of farmers, labourers, Dalits, backwards and religious minorities are today forced to ask as to what have they got in the last three years…in fact there has been an attack in their rights during this period,” she charged.
