MAYAWATI PRAISES YOGI, CENTRE; BLAMES CONGRESS FOR MIGRANTS’ PLIGHT
Rahil Nora Chopra : After BJP came to power in Uttar Pradesh in early 2017, the BSP supremo Mayawati kept her silence on the issues of Dalits, Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), and even the coronavirus lockdown. However, the eerily quiet leader has come out of the woods to praise Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for bringing back the students from Kota, Rajasthan. In fact, Mayawati now is busy criticizing the Congress on the issue of migrant labourers and she is supporting the stance of the Centre as well as the state BJP, despite the flurry of news reports of the pitiful condition of the jobless millions stuck in their cities of work ended by the lockdown. Amusingly, Mayawati even blamed the Congress for the very sad condition of migrant workers across the country, while apportioning some more blame on the Rajasthan government for demanding the payment of buses for the students who were being transported to UP. Mayawati has also announced that her party will fight on all 24 by-election seats in Madhya Pradesh, and according to observers, BSP will definitely dent the votes of Congress, thus helping out the BJP.
