Mayawati says Congress announcing 40% tickets to women in UP polls ‘pure election drama’

BSP chief Mayawati Tuesday termed a “pure election drama” the Congress’ announcement to give 40 per cent of tickets to women in the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, saying the party remembers women, Dalits and backwards only when out of power. She alleged the Congress lacks the will power to make concerted efforts for the welfare of women.

Otherwise, she said, when it was in power it could have brought a law for 33 per cent reservation for women in Parliament and legislative assemblies.

Earlier in the day, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra announced her party will give 40 per cent tickets to women in the coming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

In a tweet in Hindi, Mayawati said, “When it is in power and going through good days, the Congress does not remember Dalits, backwards and women. But now when they are going through a low period which refuses to go away, they have remembered women in Uttar Pradesh like they did Dalits in Punjab.”

“The announcement of giving 40 per cent tickets to women is nothing more than a pure election drama,” she added.

She said if the Congress was so concerned about women why did they not make the provision of 33 reservation for them in Parliament and legislative assemblies when they were in power.

“The Congress’ nature is ‘say something else and do something else’.”

In another tweet, Mayawati said, “In Uttar Pradesh and across the country, women constitute half the population. A continuous process of concerted and sincere efforts are not only required for their welfare but also their safety and respect and this needs strong will power which is hard to find in the Congress and the BJP. Whereas the BSP has shown it by doing so.”

Uttar Pradesh is scheduled to go to assembly polls in early 2022.

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday alleged that Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is working in the wrong direction as India is behind Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal in Hunger Index and the most malnourished children are in Uttar Pradesh.

Yadav was addressing a press conference in Lucknow, he said, “Central government said we will make 5 trillion economy, Uttar Pradesh government claimed that they will make one trillion economy but India is behind Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal in Hunger Index. The most malnourished children are in Uttar Pradesh. These figures show that the BJP government is working in the wrong direction.”

Speaking about the upcoming 2022 state assembly elections, Yadav said, “It has been heard that BJP is going to cut tickets of its 150 MLAs. 100 MLAs have been protesting in the state Assembly against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. We already have 50 MLAs. So the calculation is simple, we have crossed 300 seats.”

India, with a score of 27.5, has slipped from the 94th to 101st position out of 116 countries in the 2021 Global Hunger Index (GHI). India is now behind its neighbours Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal, stated the GHI report released on Thursday.
