Lucknow, July 8: Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati seems to have received the blueprint to achieve her political goal. The leader now openly expressed her desire to become the Prime Minister of the country after the next general election.
Preaching for equality and progress of the backward classes, the BSP leader said, "We cannot come to the Centre without associating all the caste with us. My party has decided to associate upper caste and religious minorities along with Dalits and backward and we started from Uttar Pradesh."
If they come to power, her party would deliver a good governance and much more in five years than what all other parties did in over 60 years after Independence, vowed Mayawati. She also claimed that she represents a party which stands for all castes and communities.
"I have given more tickets to Brahmins because of their participation in party activities. If other upper castes and Muslims contribute more, they may get an even bigger share of election tickets and if voted to power, in the government and administration," said the BSP supremo.
The former CM also criticised Modi over the controversy on his "rambo act" in rescuing 15,000 Gujaratis from flood-ravaged Uttarakhand.
Leaving a message for the countrymen, Mayawati said, "People must think before voting, because a person who aspires to be PM but talks only about saving Gujaratis in a calamity like the one that struck Uttarakhand will not be able to work honestly on a post which requires nationalist and secular credentials."
Speaking about the victims and survivors in Uttarakhand, Mayawati added, "We are grieved with massive loss of life and property due to incessant rain and landslide in Uttarakhand, we pray to give courage to the affected people."
