Mayawati depressed as BSP leaders are joining us: BJP
Hitting back, BJP on Sunday said BSP supremo Mayawati was depressed after “able and honest” leaders of her party were deserting her and joining the saffron outfit, which had prompted her to make “irritating” remarks.
BJP’s counter attack came after Mayawati claimed in Azamgarh that the Modi government could start a war with Pakistan to divert people’s attention from its “failures” ahead of polls. “The trioka of Congress, SP and BSP has been rattled by the rising popularity of BJP. BSP supremo Mayawati has made certain irritating remarks out of this depression. “One after another able and honest BSP leaders are deserting her sinking ship to join BJP. That is why she is making graceless comments against them,” BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said. He also referred to her close aide Naseemuddin Siddiqui’s remarks aimed at the wife and daughter of expelled BJP leader Dayashankar and Mayawati’s defence of him to accuse her of shedding crocodile tears for women’s empowerment.
