Lucknow, Feb 15: With Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid's promises to provide unemployment allowances and sub-quota for Muslims, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Tuesday, Feb 14, lashed out at Congress for "creating fissures" between Muslims and other backward classes by promising 9% sub-quota for minorities under 27% reservation for OBCs.

During her ongoing campaigning in Fatehpur and Banda, Mayawati claimed that her party had only worked for the development of the poverty ridden backward Bundelkhand region.

"Congress-led UPA government has provided 4.5% subquota to minorities under 27% OBC quota. Now it is promising that if voted to power, the party will increase the sub-quota to 9%. This is creating fissures between Muslims and OBCs, because the facility of reservation is being given to minorities by taking away the share of Hindu OBCs," said Mayawati.

Criticising Congress' insensitiveness towards the condition of the Bundelkhand people, she said BSP government had sent a proposal of Rs 80,000 crore to the Centre for the development of Bundelkhand and east UP, but was rejected by the centre.

"Neither the Centre sanction the package, nor helped in any way," she said.

Meanwhile, acclaiming her government, Mayawati said that her government has worked for the development of the state with its limited resources. Firmly she said that, what her government did in five years, Congress couldn't do it in 40 years.
