BJP using martyrdom of jawans for election purposes: BSP chief

Vastavam web: BSP chief Mayawati Wednesday accused the BJP of using the martyrdom of jawans for election purposes and regretted that the country’s borders are still not totally secure. She also alleged that like the previous Congress government, the BJP dispensation too is using the CBI, ED and the Income Tax department against its political opponents for electoral gains.

“Under such circumstance, the electorate have to see to it that neither the BJP nor the Congress… comes to power at the centre,” the BSP chief said at an election meeting here.

“The borders of the country are not totally secure under the BJP government as a result of which terror attacks are taking place and several jawans are being martyred. It is most unfortunate that they are anyhow using this for election purposes,” the BSP supremo said.

Warning people that her political opponents have “adopted every trick” to win the elections, Mayawati said people should not fall for tall election promises and allurements.
