BSP chief Mayawati calls Congress manifesto a show-off
BSP supremo Mayawati on Wednesday (April 3) termed the Congress manifesto a “showoff” and an “illusion” and said there was no credibility in the promises made by the party due to its past.
Congress and BJP are no different when it comes to non-fulfillment of promises, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister tweeted.
“Congress election manifesto appears to be a showoff and illusion like its previous promises. Due to continuous working against its promises, there is no credibility left for Congress among the people. Congress and BJP are no different in non-fulfilling promises,” she said in the tweet.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi on April 2 released his party’s manifesto for Lok Sabha polls. Creating jobs, addressing farmers’ distress, bringing a single moderate rate of GST and giving Rs72,000 per annum to poor families are the key focus of the manifesto if the party comes to power.
Claiming the BJP was afraid of the SP-BSP-RLD alliance, Mayawati said, “They (BJP) are so afraid that instead of talking of issues, they indulge in unnecessary casteist statements on top leader of (alliance). No one should be provoked by them (statements) and give them befitting reply by showing good results”.
