PATHANAMTHITTA: Bahujan Samaj Party general secretary Suresh Mane has said that the CPM and the CPI are forced to accept BSP supremo Mayawati as the Third Front leader in view of the emerging political scenario in the country.
Inaugurating the election convention of BSP candidate K.K. Nair here on Monday, Mane said that the current political situation in the country was advantageous for the BSP and its leader Mayawati.
Mane named Mayawati as the ‘Indian Obama’ and said that the fast-moving political climate in the country was conducive for Mayawati to lead the country.
The UPA Government, with the support of the Left parties, has been implementing anti-farmer and anti-poor policies during the past five years, he said.
The Government has destroyed the country’s farmers by creating artificial shortage of fertilizers and wheat imports from the US and other western countries, he said.
Mane said that the Congress and the BJP were strong supporters of the liberalisation policies dictated by the IMF and the World Bank.
The BSP came to power in Uttar Pradesh without the patronage of Indian multinationals such as the Reliance, Mittal or the Tatas, he said.
Party state president Saji K.Cheraman delivered the key-note address.
Election committee convener A.K. Sajeev presided. K.K.Nair and party state secretary S.Prahladan spoke.
