New Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Patry (BSP) chief Mayawati on Wednesday hit out at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress saying that both the parties only indulge in theatrics and it is only BSP which is bothered about the Dalits.
The statement from BSP supremo comes after violence in Gujarat’s Una district where 12 Dalit men attempted suicide after four Dalits were attacked by cow vigilantes a week ago.
Mayawati especially criticised the Congress party and said that the party has again failed in its responsibilities as the main opposition party.
“The Congress is the big opposition party, why didn’t they react earlier in Gujarat?” Mayawati added.
Following the violence in the state, Dalit rights organisations has called for state-wide shutdown in Gujarat in protest over Una incident.
