Lucknow, Dec 2 (UNI) Denouncing the Mayawati led-Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government in Uttar Pradesh, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today accused the former of encouraging ''national insult'' by operating in a castist manner.
''Mayawati banned Madhuri Dixit starrer 'Aaja Nachle' following controversy over 'objectionable' and 'humiliating' line to a particular caste in the title track of the film. But, no ban was imposed on Dalit leader Ramswamy Periyar's Sachchi Ramayan, in which far more derogatory lines were written against Lord Ram,'' BJP state unit vice president and spokesperson Hriday Narayan Dixit told newspersons here.
''During discussion at the state assembly session, both SP and Congress decried Sachchi Ramayan in unison and supported BJP's proposal. But, the BSP government did not serve any notice to its writer,'' he underlined.
Reproaching the state government, BJP leader charged that after the 'Aaja Nachle' controversy, its crystal clear that Mayawati is only working for a particular community and insulting Hindus is a part of her agenda. That is why she did not impose a blanket ban on Periyar's 'Sachchi Ramayan'.
