Addressing an election rally here, BSP supremo Mayawati on Sunday said both the Congress and BJP needed to be stopped from coming to power at the Centre.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said though the Congress hadn’t selected a prime ministerial candidate it was obvious that if the party came to power Rahul Gandhi would be its choice.

And if the BJP wins the Lok Sabha elections, she warned, Narendra Modi will become Prime Minister and “there will be riots across the country” as he “had a role” in the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Mayawati further alleged that Modi was trying to create an illusion that if he came to power “everything will be set right” in the country.

“Why didn’t the BJP do it when it was in power for six years?,” she asked.
