Lucknow | BSP Chief Mayawati again makes a controversial remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Alwar gang rape case, over which the duo has been publicly bickering.
Mayawati claimed that married leaders in BJP will worry that their husbands will leave them like PM Modi left his wife.
“In BJP, married women leaders get scared when they see their husbands around PM Modi. They fear that this Modi will separate them from their husbands,” Mayawati claimed in a press conference.
This is after Mayawati claimed that BJP was resorting to “dirty politics”.
“Narendra Modi was silent on Alwar gangrape case. He’s trying to play dirty politics over it. So that in the elections his party benefits. It is extremely shameful. How can he respect others’ sisters and wives when he has left his own wife for political gains?” alleged Mayawati.
Mayawati accused PM Modi of trying to appease Dalit voters.
“The PM wanted to attract Dalit votes so he is showing fake love for Dalits in his rallies. Dalits have not forgotten Shabbirpur incident. Dalits have not forgotten the Rohith Vemula and Una incidents either,” she added.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra raised offence to this comment and said that Mayawati ji for you your brother is bigger but for Modi ji the country is bigger.
On April 26, a woman was travelling with her husband on a motorcycle when a group of men stopped them and took them to an isolated place off the road. They allegedly beat the husband and gang-raped the woman in front of him, threatening the couple with dire consequences.
The police did not register an FIR until after a few days claiming they were busy with the elections.
