New Delhi, Feb 24 (UNI) Launching her party's election campaign for the year-end Delhi Assembly polls, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati today asked party cadre here to adopt the UP ''pattern'' and aim at winning over the upper caste electorate.

''I guarantee you if the Uttar Pradesh pattern is adopted here the BSP will definite come to power here and nothing can stop it,'' Ms Mayawati said while addressing her party's massive 'Sarv Samaj Bhaichara' (brotherhood rally) here.

She also directed the cadre to strengthen the organisation at grassroots level and work towards winning maximum seats in the parliamentary polls, scheduled for early next year.

The Chief Minister said welfare and development of SC/ST, OBC and economically weak and oppressed sections of society, including those from the Upper Caste, were the main priorities of her Government.

''My government has ensured equal opportunities and social justice for the oppressed and weak sections of society in Uttar Pradesh and I can promise the same for Delhi if the BSP is voted to power,'' she said at the rally which was a show of strength for the BSP leader ahead of the polls.

''Issues pertaining to SC/ST, OBC and economically weak and oppressed sections of society will be addressed on the pattern of Uttar Pradesh,'' said Ms Mayawati, who is trying to implement a social engineering formula involving Dalits and Brahmins coming together on the same political platform, like in Uttar Pradesh.

Hard selling the BSP as a 'Sarv Samaj' party (representing all sections of society), she said her party was not against the upper castes and was working for the uplift of all economically and socially backward sections.

''The BSP is not against any caste or section of society.

The policies of the Government are aimed at working for poor and economic weak sections of society. BSP Rajya Sabha MP Satish Chandra Mishra, a Brahmin, is an example of that,'' she added.

Describing the BJP and the Congress as the ''rich-person's parties'', the Chief Minister said only the BSP was a ''poor mans party.

'''Mein bikau nahin hun' (I am not saleable like others)...

The Congress and the BJP only work for the rich as they get party funds from. Beware of their policies then but not the BSP,'' she claimed.
