Speaking to reporters, SP national general secretary Ramashankar Vidyarthi also blamed the statements made by Congress leaders Mani Shankar Aiyar and Kapil Sibal for the Congress' defeat in the Gujarat Assembly elections.

"The BJP government has a special concern to address the interests of Muslim women, but it is unable to see the plight of Hindu widows," he claimed.

The condition of the Hindu widows is very bad and are kept away from various social programmes, he said.

"When will any attention be given to the Hindu widows, and when steps will be taken to provide them equal rights," he asked the prime minister.

On the election results, the SP general secretary said, "The Congress lost the (Gujarat Assembly) elections due to the statements made by Mani Shankar Aiyar and Kapil Sibal. It was because of their remarks that the BJP resorted to communal polarisation and was able to register a victory."

He also said the SP would review its performance in the Assembly elections held in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
