Lucknow : Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) governments at the Center and Uttar Pradesh of wasting public money by organising big rallies just before elections.
In a statement on Saturday, Mayawati said it is the tendency of the BJP and the Congress to organise election rallies in the name of laying foundation stones and to go on an announcement spree ahead of the elections.
“Public money and not that of these parties is wasted mercilessly in these rallies,” she added.
Terming it a gross misuse of government funds, the BSP chief a majority of the crowds turning up in these rallies were government employees and ticket seekers.
“Our party has a different style of working and methods to prepare for the elections and we don’t want to change it. Other parties need not worry about the functioning of our party,” he said.
