Centre trying to cheat OBC ahead of upcoming polls: Mayawati

Vastavam web: BSP chief Mayawati today claimed the Centre’s plan to bring a bill to grant constitutional status to the OBC Commission in the Parliament was just an effort to “cheat” weaker sections ahead of upcoming polls.The BJP, which has tried to deprive backward sections like the Dalits and the Tribals of their rights, is now trying to bring a bill granting constitutional status to the backward commission to lure weaker sections, Mayawati said in a party release here.

The BSP president said while she welcomes the “delayed move” but wants to know why this bill was not brought in the last over four years of BJP rule at the Centre.
