BSP resolve to capture master key to govt

Monday, 15 April 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati reiterated her party’s resolve to capture the master key to government to realise the dreams of Dr BR Ambedkar.

Paying rich tributes to Dr Ambedkar on his 128th birth anniversary on Sunday, Mayawati termed Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah’s statement that the BSP remembers Dr Ambedkar only during the elections, as ‘mischievous’.

Slamming the BJP, Mayawati said, “Had the BJP been a follower of the legacy of Dr Ambedkar, it would have prevented atrocities on Dalits and desecration of the statues of Babasaheb Ambedkar in BJP-ruled states.”

Asking the BJP to do self introspection, Mayawati said, BJP had no moral right to celebrate the birth anniversary of Dr Ambedkar.

“Bahujan Samaj Party is the only political party in the country which derives inspiration from Dr Ambedkar 365 days in a year and works for the uplift of the Sarva Samaj,” Mayawati said, and added, “BSP is not only a political party but a mission for social change.”

Mayawati, who is on campaign trail in different parts of the country in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, was in Chhattisgarh on Sunday.

In a statement issued here, Mayawati said that as elections were underway and Model Code of Conduct was in force, she did not visit Ambedkar Sthal in Lucknow to pay her tributes to Babasaheb. “Instead I paid floral tribute to Babasaheb’s statue installed in my residence,” she said.

“It is my appeal on this day that the dreams of Babasaheb can be realised if the master key of governance comes in the hands of the Bahujan Samaj by winning the elections,” she said.  

“BSP is the only party which works on the ideology and principles of Dr Ambedkar who gave the right to vote to every citizen of India that unshackled centuries-old bondage of Dalits and other downtrodden sections of society,” she said.

Mayawati also listed the details of works and schemes launched for commemorating Dr Ambedkar, including construction of Ambedkar Sthal in Lucknow during the BSP regime in Uttar Pradesh. 

Mayawati will address two election rallies in UP on Monday. The first rally will be in Aligarh and the second in Amroha.
