A Bahujan Samaj Party leader, in a rally in Uttar Pradesh, praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in front of BSP chief Mayawati, before his mike was snatched away from him. The leader said that for the first time India had conducted surgical strikes to strike down terrorists across the borders. He also praised the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 and said that the Prime Minister had done a commendable job. It was at this moment that one of the men, presumably a party worker who was standing behind him throughout the speech, attempted snatching the mic out of his hands but the leader held on to it and finished his speech.

This comes to a shock to the Bahujan Samaj Party as their chief and former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati, on Monday had criticised the Prime Minister for the overnight announcement of the demonetisation scheme. She had also said that the Prime Minister was pleased when the poor people were in pain. Mayawati had been quite vocal in opposing the demonetisation move by the Central government and the RbI, citing the inconveniences faced by the common man due to the poor management.

 

Earlier on November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denomination notes overnight. Although the decision has been lauded widely for being a bold step in the fight against corruption, it has also been severely criticised for the lack of a proper planning and poor execution. The opposition parties, including the Congress, AAP, SP, BSP, TMC among others have come out to the streets to oppose the motion and have demanded that it must be rolled back.

It is written in generalist language without mentioning any kind of source and reference.2. Mayawati has not addressed any public meeting in recent weeks.3. Similar story was published elsewhere for SP workers.........
