New Delhi, Oct 8: In a press conference in Delhi, Rahul Gandhi openly challenged the leadership of Mayawati, saying that she is not letting the Dalit leadership grow in Uttar Pradesh. Accusing her of 'single-handedly' leading the party, not allowing anyone from her own community to represent Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).

As an example, Rahul referred to a childhood incident that his grandmother had shared with him.

Mayaji not letting Dalits grow up the political ladder, said Rahul

He says, when Indira Gandhi was young, she went to Germany and was part of an ice hockey event. There, just one team was dominating making all the goals, while the other one was struggling hard to make one. The audience, without doubt, backed the winning team encouraging it for its splendid performance.

However, Indira Gandhi went against the public opinion and clapped for the losing team as a sign of encouragement when they made the slightest attempt to make a goal. Despite critical glances, she continued to back them.

Drawing a moral from the story, probably directing to the people of UP, Rahul said,"Our party backs and supports the weak and I hail you not to get stubbed by one force, no matter how big it may be." "Stand and make your presence felt," ended Rahul dramatically.
