BSP Supremo Mayawati attacked the BJP government for exploiting the Dalits in their ruling states like Rohit Vemula and Una incident in Gujarat. She said other than UP the Dalits are not getting justice elsewhere. She also added that due to the ineffectiveness of UP government in the Dalit torture matter she resigned from the parliament.
Adressing the big gathering she said Dr. Babasaheb Ambedakar was humiliated in Vadodara during the Gaekwadi rule. Dr. Ambedkar suffered the humiliation as he was a dalit. The racist minded people humiliate him and that inspired Dr. Babasaheb Ambedakar to fight for the rights of the Dalits and against racism.
She said the BJP government was against reservation and that is the reason the situation of OBC and other class in Gujarat is worse and they are still away from getting their reservation. She warned the government to do something for the dalits and avoid playing the racism thing or else she will change to Buddhism along with her lakhs of followers.
She said the BJP is responsible for the fall of V.P. Singh when the issues of conferring Bharat Ratna to Dr. Babasahed Ambedkar and implement Mandal Commission. BSP Supremo said that in Gujarat both Congress and now the BJP never thought of built a memorial at the Sankalp Bhoomi. It was the effect of her that forced them to announce the project during the centenary day celebration.“The BJP came to know about my visit to Vadodara today which makes them to think about Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. They came here before her and announce to build a memorial of Dr. Ambedkar with the ground breaking ceremony at the place near the Sankalp bhoomi. It’s all due to the effect of myself coming here and the credit goes to the BSP,” said Mayawati.
She said during their governance the state of UP is going through a wonderful phase as their government pushed themselves in law enforcement, crime control and working towards the development of state. They are working as like the way showed by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar and master key was with them. But this time with the help of EVM chaos BJP came to power and since then the exploitation of dalits and backward class people starts in the state. She also accused the BJP government for her murder planning after raising the Saharanpur issue but she survived due to her instinct.
She said now they come to Gujarat where elections will hold in a short time. She requested the gathering to support them and that will be the real tribute to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar for his humiliation here and her resignation from the parliament. She also added that it will also be the befitting reply to the BJP here.
