MAYAWATI: EVEN RAM TEM­PLE CAN’T HELP BJP

The Asian Age - - Nation - AGE COR­RE­SPON­DENT

Bahu­jan Sa­maj Party supremo Mayawati on Sat­ur­day as­serted that BJP would not re­turn to power at the Cen­tre in the 2019 par­lia­men­tary elec­tions even if the Ram tem­ple came up in Ay­o­d­hya in Ut­tar Pradesh.

Sound­ing poll bu­gle for the re­cently stitched al­liance be­tween her party and Ajit Jogi’s Janata Congress Ch­hat­tis­garh ( JCC) at Sarkonda in Ch­hat­tis­garh’s Bilaspur district, Ms Mayawati said the BJP- led NDA gov­ern­ment at the Cen­tre has failed to ful­fill the prom­ises made to the farm­ers and un­em­ployed youths and hence it would be dis­lodged from power in the 2019 par­lia­men­tary elec­tions.

She said the like- minded par­ties should come to­gether to deny BJP to power at the Cen­tre as well as the states where BJP was in power. She also slammed Congress for its fail­ure to up­lift the back­ward classes in the coun­try in the past.

Ms Mayawati said Mr Jogi, the chief min­is­te­rial can­di­date of the al­liance, would give good gov­er­nance if the al­liance came to power in Ch­hat­tis­garh which is go­ing to Assem­bly in two phases on Novem­ber 12 and 20 this year.

JCC will put up its can­di­dates in 55 out of 90 Assem­bly seats in Ch­hat­tis­garh leav­ing the rest 35 for BSP. Mr Jogi who also ad­dressed the pub­lic meet­ing, de­clared that he would spare no ef­forts to make Ms Mayawati PM in the 2019 elec­tions.
