Ranchi, Dec 1 (UNI) Holding the UPA and NDA Governments responsible for the backwardness of the dalits, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati today said their condition could improve only through the Bahujan Samaj government at the Centre.
''Both governments, the Congress-led UPA or the BJP-led NDA, did nothing for the uplift of the 'Bahujan Samaj', Ms Mayawati said while addressing a party rally here.
Ms Mawayati said both governments were targeting to end the reservation system by transferring the government units to private hands declaring them sick and unproductive.
''The party is not against privatisation but this would bring an end to the reservation facilties for the backward classes,'' Ms Mayawati added.
Ms Mayawati also suggested to follow the BSP's ''social engineering'' method and said this formula would help attain power.
She said the party was also ready to provide reservation facility to economically backwards belonging to upper castes but it had to be implemented by the Union government.
The BSP chief also demanded implementation of the amended Forest Act in the states.
She said the tribals would be benefited by the Act.
