Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Thursday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of portraying Prime Minister Narendra Modi as India and India as Modi and said it was repeating the same mistake which the Congress made in Indira Gandhi’s rule.
Mayawati’s remark comes days after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called the Indian Army “Modiji ki sena” (PM Modi’s Army) during an election rally in Ghaziabad.
“By portraying ‘Modi is India and India is Modi’, the BJP/RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) are committing the same mistake and insulting India and democracy which the Congress had done earlier by declaring ‘Indira is India and India is Indira’,” Mayawati said in a tweet.
She said, “A huge pity and most condemnable. People should not forgive them for this sin.”
