New Delhi: BSP supremo Mayawati on  Friday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging “chowkidaari” is making the rich wealthier and his “theatrics and rhetoric” will not yield any result in the Lok Sabha polls. Addressing a rally in North East Delhi, she said no development was carried out for minorities, Dalits and backward castes in the last five years.

Their condition was no different during the Congress rule, she said. “The BJP will go out of power. Their natakbaazi (theatrics) and jumlebaazi (rhetoric) won’t work. This chowkidari (guarding) won’t work. PM Modi had promised acche din but he hasn’t fulfilled even one-fourth of them. GST and demonetisation was implemented without proper planning and this has increased poverty,” she said.   

Ms Mayawati said Mr Modi and BJP president Amit Shah have tried every tactics to see to it that  the gathbandhan between her party, the Samajwadi Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal does not win.

“Mr Modi and Mr Shah have tried every trick in the book to stop the BSP-SP-RLD alliance from wining,” Ms Mayawati said and urged the gathering “not to fall” for the big promises made  by the Congress and the BJP.
