New Delhi, Jan 7: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and the BSP chief Mayawati today accused the Congress of sheltering mafia don Atiq Ahmed who might eliminate her and said her party would soon take a decision on whether to continue support to the UPA Government at the Centre.
Addressing a press conference here, she said Atiq Ahmed could kill her under the ruse of a terrorist attack. The Congress was afraid of the BSP's 'growing popularity' and, therefore, its leaders were trying to frame her in the income tax case besides doing everything else that could bring her party under political pressure, Ms Mayawati added.
She said the Congress had lost the recent Assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh because of its own weaknesses but was blaming the BSP for its defeat.
She said although the Central intelligence agencies know that her rivals were conspiring to kill her, the UPA government was not providing her SPG cover despite the State government's repeated requests in this regard.
