Addressing a moderately attended election campaign at Chitradurga here, Ms Mayavathi charged the UPA government at the center of ignoring her repeated plea to accommodate poor among the upper caste under Reservation.
Charging that all other political parties have indulged on smear campaign against BSP that it is against people of upper caste, she said that the status of those belonging to Scheduled caste, scheduled tribe, other backward and poorer section of upper caste remain unchanged even after 60 years of country achieving independence.
