State BJP president Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey said that BSP chief Mayawati was under depression after her party’s defeat in Assembly and Lok Sabha elections and hence should quit politics.
Reacting to Mayawati’s statement that she would embrace Buddhism if the BJP does not stop harassment of Dalits, Pandey said that she has lost political ground because people have lost faith in her.
“Instead of leaving Hinduism, she should leave politics because she cannot mislead Dalits any more,” he said in a statement issued in Lucknow on Wednesday.
The BJP leader said that Mayawati was in a state of depression after her party’s defeat in Assembly and Lok Sabha elections. “The fact is that Mayawati has no sympathy with Dalits. She used them as vote bank and in the process, earned riches when she was Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh,” Pandey said.
“Previous regimes by ‘Bua’ and ‘Bhatija’ (Mayawati and Akhilesh) have indulged in systematic loot which came to an end after the BJP came to power. Both leaders are confused and therefore were issuing such statements,” he said.
The state BJP president said that his party was working for the welfare of Dalits because it was working on `Antodaya’ as shown by Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyay.
Meanwhile, the state BJP president sacked Goraakhpur district general secretary Sarita Singh for anti-party activities.
