Lucknow, Apr 8 (UNI) Taking strong exception to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati terming Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi's spending night with dalit family a ''mere facade'', Congress today announced to observe April 11 as 'Sadbuddhi Diwas'.
''The Sadbuddhi Diwas would be observed in all district headquarters, where Congress activists would stage dharnas and pray for Mayawati so that better sense prevails on her,'' UP Congress spokesperson Akhilesh Pratap Singh here said.
Mr Singh further denounced the Mayawati-led BSP government, saying ''she is befooling the poor and dalit population, who brought her to power. Her government is not for poor and downtroddens, but for rich and prosperous.'' Meanwhile, former Arunachal Pradesh Governor Mata Prasad also lambasted the BSP supremo's remarks about Mr Gandhi as ''against the Constitution.'' During a gathering yesterday, Ms Mayawati had termed Mr Gandhi's night stay with a Dalit family a ''mere facade.'' UNI ATI MSJ RK1700
