Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘SCAM’ acronym has irked a disrupting rattle in the political landscape of Uttar Pradesh. After Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati has given a stiff response to Prime Minister’s comment. Speaking to ANI, Mayawati today said, “PM padd par baithe vyakti ko kya shobha deta hai ki woh SCAM mein M se Mayawati ka nam leke rajneetik ladai ladne ki bat kare?” (It is improper for a person sitting on the post of Prime Minister to refer M for Mayawati just to ignite his political fights?)

Further expressing her grief, she said, “Iss mein inki jaatiwaadi maansikta saaftaur par jhalakti hai.” (This clearly reflects his casteist mentality).

“Pime Minister’s speech also shows the level of enmity BJP government and its ideologue RSS has towards dalits, backwards and their communal hatred…it also proves the level of frustration BJP has because of its bad position in the UP Assembly polls as he is taking names of individuals in his speech” Mayawati added. The BSP chief also asked PM Modi to first give the account of scams behind his unprecedented demonetisation drive which made the entire nation suffer.
