BSP supremo Mayawati today came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the foreign policy, especially with regard to Pakistan, was ‘inconsistent’ because of which the country’s borders were unsafe.
The foreign policy of the Modi government, especially concerning Pakistan, seems to be “inconsistent and ineffective because of which the situation on the borders was as insecure as before”, party workers who attended a meeting here with her quoted her as saying.
Her remark comes against the backdrop of the ongoing operation at Pathankot air base to flush out holed up terrorists.
Mayawati said BJP leaders in their speeches during the Lok Sabha elections used to say things which indicated that there would be a shift in India’s foreign policy towards Pakistan and there will be stability…but the policy appears to be ineffective.
On the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh, she alleged that it does not have people’s welfare, service or interest on its priority list leading to “anarchy” in the state.
SP leaders are so busy in cycling, promoting family and in family show in Saifai Mahotsav that they did not have the time to appoint the state police chief in time, she said.
Describing newly appointed DGP Javeed Ahmad as an able officer, she regretted that several such dedicated officers, both in IAS, IPS and other services were not allowed to work honestly under the SP government.
Mayawati alleged that at the lower level in districts, blocks and tehsils, mostly dishonest people belonging to a particular caste who do not work as per the rules or listen to their seniors have been posted.
The BSP chief said that by misreporting facts before the Supreme Court on the issue of appointment of new Lokayukta, the SP government has committed a “black deed”.
The SP government is not only flaying the constitutional provisions but also creating new controversies in appointments in constitutional institutions forcing courts to interfere, she said.
“While the communal atmosphere in the state is being harmed because of BJP, the SP government appears to be totally negligent of it and this seems to be the outcome of the understanding between the two,” she said.
