Congress, BJP not working for common man: Mayawati
BSP chief Mayawati Tuesday said both the Congress and the BJP promote big corporate houses instead of working for the common man.
Addressing a public rally in Sector 29 here in support of her Bahujan Samaj Party's Lok Sabha candidates, Mayawati said Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has done nothing for the common people in the state during his 10-year regime.
"Hooda has been busy transferring farmers' plots to builders or acquiring them. Mewat district is as much backward as it was a decade ago," she said.
On Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, she said a report by the Comptroller and Auditor General revealed that Gujarat was under a loan of over Rs.1 lakh crore.
She questioned the development claims in Gujarat and the role of Modi and his government in the state during the 2002 riots.
Mayawati also held the central governments responsible for Maoist activity in the country and said it was due to unemployment, bias in development work and corruption.
The BSP is contesting all 10 Lok Sabha seats from Haryana.
