Asked about her stand on Alwar rape cases, Mayawati drags PM Modi’s wife into politics

Desperate times? Mayawati ups her personal attacks on Prime Minister Modi invokes his estranged wife

Lowering the political discourse, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati made a derogatory remark against Prime Minister Modi.

While addressing the media, Mayawati said how can Prime Minister Modi respect others’ sisters and wives when he has abandoned his own wife “for political gains”. She then said, “I have heard that the wives of the BJP leaders are afraid whenever their husbands go to him. They are afraid that the way Modi abandoned his wife, he will separate us from our husbands too.” She then appealed to the women of the country to not vote for ‘such a man.’

Mayawati then said that PM Modi has no moral right to speak on the brutal Alwar gang-rape where a young Dalit woman was gang-raped by men and blackmailed in Rajasthan. PM Modi had accused the Congress government in Rajasthan of suppressing the gang-rape.

This is not the first time Mayawati has made distasteful personal attacks on PM Modi. Earlier she has attacked the PM and questioned his caste. Making a casteist remark against the PM, she had said that Modi isn’t OBC ‘by birth’ and hence he hasn’t suffered from casteism. She had also said that Akhilesh Yadav, the son of a former chief minister and former union minister, is real backward, while Modi, who comes from humble origins, is not really backward.

In fact, she had also lied that Modi had got his upper caste included in the OBC list during his term as the Gujarat Chief Minister.  “In order to derive political profits during elections, he (PM Modi) got his upper caste included in the list of backward castes. Like Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav, (PM) Modi was not born in a backward caste,” she said.

However, a closer look showed that Mayawati was saying an outright lie. Narendra Modi belongs to the Modh Ghanchi caste which was classified as OBC by the Gujarat government in 1994, after the Mandal Commission report. Narendra Modi became the Gujarat CM only in 2001.
