New Delhi, Apr 8 (UNI) Delhi PWD Minister Rajkumar Chauhan today described as 'shameful' the comment of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister that Congress MP and party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's stay in the hut of a Dalit in Uttar Pradesh and having meals with them was ''a drama and he gets himself purified after coming back to Delhi''.
Describing yesterday's statement by the UP Chief Minister as an insult of the Dalits, Mr Chauhan, a leading Dalit leader of Delhi, said,''Ms Mayawati has lost her sense and also the dignity of the Chief Minister's post over the love and popularity Mr Rahul Gandhi has been receiving from Dalits across the country.
He said Mayawati was suffering from feudal mentality and ''she thinks all are like that''.
He said the Nehru-Gandhifamily's love to Dalits was known to everybody.
''Both the Congress and Rahul Gandhi do not need a certificate from narrow-minded leaders like Mayawati for their work,''Mr Chauhan said, adding that ''Mayawati has got power in the name of Dalits, but she failed to protect interests of the Dalits in Uttar Pradesh under her rule''.
