Aam Aadmi Party state president Sabhajeet Singh criticised the Bahujan Samaj Party for remembering the plight of Brahmins at the time of election. In a statement he said Brahmins had started haunting the BSP at the time of election.
“BSP move to invoke Brahmins at the time of election is farce. In fact BSP is the B team of Bharatiya Janata Party. In their Brahmin Sammelan, there were neither Brahmins nor BSP workers,” he said.
The AAP state president was reacting to BSP's Brahmin sammelan in Ayodhya. Singh said the BSP was only staging a play and it had nothing to do with the well-being of the Brahmins. The AAP leader questioned why BSP remembered Brahmins only at the time of election. “Where was the BSP when one Nripendra Mishra was murdered in Lucknow?” he asked.
Singh said the Brahmins would not fall into the trap of BSP supremo Mayawati and BSP general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra.
The AAP leader said by trying to woo Brahmins, the BSP was trying to benefit the BJP in the elections. “In the coming election, the BSP will have ‘lotus’ in the trunk of ‘elephant’ as its poll symbol,” he taunted.
