Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Saturday cornered Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of development of eastern Uttar Pradesh and asserted that it would be ‘more historic than a win’ if PM loses from Varanasi – his parliamentary constituency.
She attacked the Gujrat model of government and wrote:
“PM Modi’s Gujarat model has not been even slightly successful in removing the extreme poverty, unemployment, and backwardness of the Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh, which is a blatant betrayal. The Modi-Yogi double-engineered government has, instead of development, only given caste and communal discord, hatred, and violence to the nation, which is very sad.”
She added, “This deception and betrayal happened with people of Purvanchal even when PM and UP’s CM, both represent this region. If Yogi can be turned down by Gorakhpur, wouldn’t the defeat of PM Modi from Varanasi be more historic than his win? Will Varanasi repeat what Raebareli did in 1977?”
