Faizabad/Gonda, Apr 25 UNI | 3 months ago

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati today said the communal harmony of the country will be badly hit, if BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi becomes the next PM.

"The BJP-led NDA government was at the Centre, when the riots took place in Gujrat in 2002," Ms Mayawati alleged, while addressing an election meeting in Faizabad. Mr Modi claims to improve the financial condition of the country, but the truth was that the condition of the nation would worsen in his regime, she asserted.

The BSP chief hit out at Congress and Samajwadi Party for being alike and keeping anti-people approach. She said her party was contesting the elections on her own from all 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP.

Ms Mayawati said that her party has fielded 17 Dalits and 19 Muslims in this elections.

In a similar rally at Gonda, Ms Mayawati said the law and order has completely collapsed in the state and mafias and goons have become more active in the present election.

She further hit out at the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre for failing at all fronts.
