Mayawati slashed Modi for adding his caste in backward caste saying as Political stunt!
Bahujan Samaj Party Chief, Mayawati fired on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the inclusion of his own caste in BC category is only for the political gain.
She alleged that PM Narendra Modi included his caste in the backward category during his tenure as Gujarat CM to derive electoral profit. "Like (SP founder) Mulayam Singh Yadav and (SP President) Akhilesh Yadav, PM Modi was not born in backward caste," she added. Mayawati further said that BJP's Dalit-backward card won't work in Uttar Pradesh.
Mayawati’s is trusted ally of Janasena party in Andhra Pradesh where its founder Pawan Kalyan wanted her to become the Prime minister of Indian. Her party has got some seats in Andhra Pradesh polls earlier this month because of her alliance with Janasena.
The BSP supremo's comments came hours after Modi slammed the SP-BSP-RLD alliance in Uttar Pradesh, saying the tie-up of "opportunists" wants a helpless government because its mantra is "jaat, paat japna; janata ka maal apna".
