BSP chief Mayawati addressed her first political rally on Monday after the resign from the Rajya Sabha in July. As per Indian Express report, she called the BJP’s electoral promises as “hawa hawai” and said that relief on farm loan waiver of Rs 1, Rs 2 and 40 paise by the Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is an “ugly joke.” While addressing the rally in Meerut, Mayawati alleged that wherever there is BJP rule,  there is a push of RSS agenda which includes casteism, narrow-minded, communal and capitalism. She also blamed BJP government at both state and Centre for sparking “communal violence” under the faith and cow protection umbrella. As per IE report, she said that in the name of dharm and sanskaar, an environment of fear and terror is being created.

Mayawati also alleged that BJP is using CBI, Income Tax department and the Enforcement Directorate against Opposition parties. She said,”In the name of weeding out black money and corruption, they are focusing mostly on Opposition parties.” As per IE report, Mayawati during the rally also said that BJP is hiding its own corruption and accusations.

Mayawati also gave the reason for resigning Rajya Sabha and said that she quit because she was allowed to speak for the people in the “country’s largest panchayat, and the temple of democracy.” According to the BSP chief, she took inspiration from B R Ambedkar’s resignation in 1951 to protest the negative attitude of Congress leaders on three of his policies meant to help the downtrodden, added the report.
