Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that his “government is a sinking ship” adding that even the RSS appears to have stopped its support to the party.
“Prime Minister Modi government’s ship is sinking, even the RSS has stopped supporting them. In view of unfulfilled election promises and the public agitation, their swayamsevaks are not being seen putting in the work, it has made Shri Modi nervous,” the BSP chief tweeted.
“A pure PM who can run the country in accordance with welfare spirit of Constitution is needed,” Mayawati said in a series of tweets.
She further asked the Election Commission to include the expenses of roadshows in the candidates account and ban temple visits.
She said that holding roadshows and visiting temples have become a ‘fashion’ during elections and a huge amount of money is spent on this.
She demanded that the media should be banned from covering these roadshows and temple visits.
The BSP chief is one of the few leaders who has never held a roadshow in her entire political career.
The attacks come a day after Mayawati and PM Modi traded barbs over alleged atrocities on Dalits.
Launching a personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BSP supremo Mayawati on Monday questioned how the PM could “respect others’ sisters and wives when he has left his own wife for political gains”.
She further accused PM Modi of playing “dirty politics over the Alwar gangrape case” to “benefit his party in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
The vitriolic attack came a day after PM Modi on Sunday said that Mayawati was “shedding crocodile tears” over the gangrape case.
The BJP has condemned the personal attacks on PM Modi with party leader Arun Jaitley calling her “unfit for public life”.
