BSP chief, Akhilesh target Modi in Varanasi

Vastavam web: In yet another personal attack on the prime minister, BSP chief Mayawati Thursday said how can one expect Narendra Modi to respect women when he cannot do so for his wife.

Addressing an election rally here along with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and RLD’s Ajit Singh, Mayawati targeted Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, saying the “government of guru and chela (disciple)” would be ousted from power on May 23, the day results of Lok Sabha polls would be announced.

The BSP again alleged that women in the BJP are scared of their husbands meeting the prime minister fearing they might also “abandon their wives”.

She alleged Modi is also “troubling” West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. In a press statement earlier this week, Mayawati had said, “I have come to know that in BJP, women leaders get scared when they see their husbands going near PM Modi. They fear that like Modi they might also abandon their wives.”

“Under such circumstances, I request all the women of the country not to give their votes to such a person. This would also be their real respect to the deserted wife of Modiji,” she had said. Addressing the rally in Varanasi, the BSP chief also questioned the prime minister on his caste.

She claimed Modi has “lost his sleep” after it became clear that the BSP-SP-RLD grand-alliance was winning.
