KAUSHAMBI: The Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday alleged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati is not a well wisher of dalits as after coming to power in 2007 she abolished SC status of 17 backward communities.

"Immediately after coming to power in 2007, Mayawati withdrew status of SC from 17 backward communities and added them in the list of OBCs," he told an election rally at Manjhanpur.

She has done so as she is not a well wisher of dalits, he said. Mulayam said by closing several welfare schemes like 'kanya vidyadhan' launched during SP regime, Mayawati has exposed her "anti-people" face.

The SP chief said that Maya withdrew status of SC from 17 backward communities immediately after coming in power.

He further said by installing statues of herself and that of her party symbol (elephants), Mayawati has drained the state exchequer.

Targeting Congress, Mulayam alleged due to its wrong policies, unemployment has increased.

He alleged to benefit industrialists and by setting up big industries, Congress has led to closure of cottage industries.
