Congress has always been against Dalits, sad and shameful behaviour: Mayawati on Rajasthan BSP MLAs defecting to Congress

Six BSP MLAs had given a letter late last night to speaker CP Joshi, requesting him to merge their legislative party with the Congress.

BSP chief Mayawati is not pleased with Congress after her party’s six MLAs in Rajasthan left BSP and defected to Congress. These MLAs had given a letter late last night to speaker CP Joshi, requesting him to merge their legislative party with the Congress.

As per reports, the MLAs who have decided to change their loyalties and merge with Congress are Rajendra Singh Gudha, Jogendra Singh Awana, Wajib Ali, Lakhan Singh Meena, Sandeep Yadav and Deepchand. These MLAs have decided to merge their legislative party in the assembly with the Congress. A congress leader has stated that all the six MLAs were in contact with Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot and have now decided to come into the Congress fold.

Mayawati, who after the 2018 assembly elections in Rajasthan, had declared that her party will stay out of government but will give outside support, has taken to Twitter to unleash her acrimony at the Congress party.

The BSP supremo tweeted: “By once again breaking BSP MLAs, the Congress has reflected that they are non-trustworthy and fraudsters. They have betrayed BSP at the time when we were providing unconditional support to the Congress in Rajasthan”.

It is notable here that all the six BSP MLAs had also defected to Congress during Ashok Gehlot’s earlier tenure in 2009.

“Instead of fighting with its opponents or bitter rivals, Congress has a habit of betraying its supporters”, Mayawati tweeted furthering that “Congress is anti-SC, ST and OBC and has never been sincere and honest about the rights of these classes.”

“The Congress has always been against BR Ambedkar and his ideology. That is why Ambedkar had to resign as the country’s first law minister. Congress never honoured him with a Bharat Ratna, which is sad and shameful,” lambasted Mayawati.

It has become difficult for the BSP supremo to reconcile to the fact that she has been backstabbed by the party to whom she provided her unconditional support. Notably, Mayawati had supported Congress in Madhya Pradesh too.

However, in the recent past, the BSP supremo has been quite vocal about her repugnance towards the grand old party. She had recently slammed the Congress party and former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru blaming them to be the root cause of Jammu and Kashmir problems.

Earlier too, Mayawati had, slammed the Congress and opposition parties over their attempted visit to Kashmir. Criticising their intention behind the visit Mayawati stated that the opposition leaders should rather have waited and given the government some time to normalise the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Notably, during the Karnataka crisis, the BSP supremo had snubbed the Congress-JDS coalition and asked lone BSP MLA to abstain from the trust vote.
