Maya shown as Goddess Kali in poster, BJP cries foul
A poster of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati, depicting her as Goddess Kali slaying Union Minister Smriti Irani with PM Narendra Modi shown in a miniature form has surfaced here, has triggered a blame game between political rivals in UP.
While the BSP denied its association with the poster, leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have lodged a complaint, seeking action against those responsible.
The poster, which also carries the names of those who have issued it, was part of the tableau being taken out in Sadabad town on Sunday during the Ambedkar Shobha Yatra.
However, the district administration got them removed from the shobha yatra promptly.
Meanwhile, BJP leaders of the district took offence to the poster and led by their district president Ramvir Singh met SP Ajaypal Sharma and submitted a memorandum, demanding lodging of a case against those putting up the poster as well as the convenor of the shobha yatra. The SP said that the matter was being probed. Two persons, whose names are mentioned in the poster, are said to be block level leaders of BSP.
