Lucknow, May 13 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Lenninist) on one year completion of Chief Minister Mayawati's rule in Uttar Pradesh today said the period was disappointing for the people of the state.
CPI(ML) state unit secretary Sudhakar Yadav alleged ''the Mayawati led-Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government came with majority in the state, but instead of promoting 'democracy' and 'development,' she promoted 'loot' and 'suppression.'' Crime graph, including atrocities on dalits, have risen under the BSP's regime, he said adding, people of the state were still facing power and drinking water crises.
Mr Yadav further charged that ''Ms Mayawati favours corporate sector, which has started ruining farmers.'' The CPI(ML) leader raised Ganga-Expressway project, saying ''it will adversely affect the farmers.'' He further lambasted the CM for not taking any effective steps for people of the drought hit Buldelkhand region.
The CPI(ML) would lay down a strategy for agitation against the government's misrule during its state committee meets scheduled to commence from May 22 and end on May 24.
