Mayawati slams Sheila Dikshit's govt
New Delhi, Nov 30: Promising to replicate her "UP model" of social engineering in Delhi, BSP Chief Mayawati on Friday accused Sheila Dikshit government of being "corrupt" and not doing anything for migrants to the national capital.

Addressing a big poll rally in Nanakpura in South Delhi, Mayawati said BSP will ensure the welfare of "sarv samaj" which is inclusive of people from all castes and religion. "If you want the same development to take place in Delhi like UP where we built houses for poorest of the poor and gave employment to youths, then vote for BSP. If you want to live with dignity and not allowances, then support us," she said.

BSP had emerged as the third largest party in the last Delhi assembly election in 2008 with a 14.05 per cent vote share.

While its two candidates had won, the party is hopeful to win more seats this time around. The party has fielded candidates in 69 constituencies out of total 70 seats. Optimistic of improving its vote percentage in the Delhi polls, she said BSP follows the policy of "Sarv Jan Hitay, Sarv Jan Sukhay (welfare for all, happiness for all)."

"I want to make its clear that we are contesting from all seats in Delhi assembly election on our own strength and have not entered into any agreement of any sort with any party," she said. Accusing Congress of doing nothing for migrants, Mayawati asked the people to defeat the "corrupt" Congress which is in power in Delhi for the last 15 years.

She said the party has given tickets to candidates from all sections of the society. Striking a chord with people from marginalised sections of the society who formed the major part of crowd at rally, Mayawati promised to provide them two-bed room flats free of cost and permanent jobs to unemployed youth, if voted to power.
