Rahul Gandhi's remarks on condition of Dalits, Muslims in India 'bitter truth': Mayawati
He said, on Thursday, that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would be "decimated" in the next three-four assembly elections by the Congress.
LUCKNOW: BSP chief Mayawati on Friday said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's recent remarks on the 'miserable condition' of Dalits and Muslims in the country is a "bitter truth" for which previous governments of the Congress, the BJP and other parties at the Centre were responsible.
In a series of tweets in Hindi, she said, "The statement given by (former Congress president) Rahul Gandhi during his US tour pertaining to the miserable condition of crores of Dalits and Muslims, and the insecurity to their lives and religion, in India, is a bitter truth for which the governments of the Congress, BJP and other parties at the Centre, were completely responsible."
1. कांग्रेस के पूर्व अध्यक्ष द्वारा अमेरिकी दौरे में भारत के करोड़ों दलितों व मुस्लिम समाज की दयनीय दशा एवं उनके जान-माल, मजहब की असुरक्षा आदि के बारे में दिया गया बयान ऐसी कड़वी सच्चाई है जिसके लिए केन्द्र में कांग्रेस, बीजेपी व अन्य पार्टियों की रही सरकारें पूर्ण रूप से दोषी।— Mayawati (@Mayawati) June 2, 2023
"Irrespective of the government of the Congress or the BJP in different states, including UP, injustice, atrocities and exploitation of the poor and deprived (sections of society) by those belonging to the majority section has been a common thing. It was only during the BSP government in UP that the rule of law was established and justice was done to everyone," she said.
"Along with this, history is filled with 'black chapters' of innumerable communal riots and casteist incidents (triggered) for political and electoral self-interest," Mayawati tweeted.
