Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati retorted to Amit Shah’s ‘Kasab’ jibe by labelling him as the “biggest Kasab of all”.
On Wednesday, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah had come up with an acronym for “KASAB”, deconstructing the 26/11 terrorist’s name to make it stand for the Congress, Samajwadi Party and the BSP.
“Until Uttar Pradesh gets rid of K-A-S-A-B, there will be no development in the state. Ka is for Congress, Sa for Samajwadi Party and Ba for BSP,” Shah said while addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Chauri Chaura district.
“The whole country knows that there is no bigger Kasab or terrorist than Amit Shah,” said Mayawati in a rally today at Ambedkarnagar.

Mayawati also appealed to the voters on behalf of five BSP candidates who stood on the stage with their hands folded. She appealed to the crowd to forgive any wrongs that her party’s candidates may have committed, and that the people should vote in favor of BSP for their “sister”.
Uttar Pradesh is half-way through seven-phase polls with voting underway for the 4th phase on Thursday. The results will be declared on March 11.
