Lucknow, Oct 4 (UNI) Ram Vilas Paswan-led Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) today lashed out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, saying that the construction of parks, buildings and statues would not bring about the welfare of Dalits.
The Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati was out to give benefit to her caste only leaving other sections of the Dalits and Backward Classes high and dry, LJP's state spokesman Raj Kumar Ojha said here in a statement.
Alleging that the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister was unnecessarily spending public money on parks and installing statues, he said instead the same could be utilised in better way for upliftment of the down trodden class.
''The need of the hour is to create employment in private and public sectors and inlcude the neglected class in the mainstream of the society,''the LJP leader said.
The release also lambasted Ms Mayawati for selecting her successor in the party from her caste.''Owing to this, the Dalit class is feeling cheated,'' it pointed out.
The LJP is also trying to make its presence felt in Uttar Pradesh and desires to contest on some seats in the coming Lok Sabha polls. The LJP leader appealed to the Dalit and backward sections to support the party in order to expose the caste politics of the BSP.
