Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati lashed out at the ruling BJP and the Congress and said that both are “birds of the same feather” who betray people. She further targeted them for their ‘garibi hatao’ promise calling it a bluff.
Mayawati said: “Ruling BJP calling Congress slogan of Garibi Hatao 2.0 a bluff, is true.
“But is poll bluff and reneging of poll promises the sole domain of the BJP?”
“In fact BJP and Congress party are both birds of the same feather. They betraying the interests of the poor, labourers, farmers and others,” Mayawati tweeted.
The Dalit leader’s remarks came after the ruling BJP described Congress’ minimum income scheme ‘NYAY’ announced by party chief Rahul Gandhi for elimination of poverty a “bluff”.
Gandhi had on Monday announced to give Rs 72,000 per annum to 25 crore poor families of the country.
