Attacking SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, BSP supremo Mayawati today said that "the son has more venom in him than his father". "The son has more venom than his father. If Dr Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar and the Constitution had not been there, he (Akhilesh) would have never become the CM, instead, he would have been grazing cattle of some landlord in Saifai," Mayawati told an election meeting.

Making a scathing attack on BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, she said, "Imagine what will happen if a person, whose hands are tainted with blood of Godhra case, becomes the prime minister." She cautioned Dalits that if BJP comes to power it would abolish reservation being given to the SC/ST communities in the name of constitutional review. Mayawati also advised Muslims to vote for BSP unitedly.

"If there was division in Muslim votes then no one could stop BJP from coming to the power and in that case the country would burn into the flames of riots," Mayawati said. The BSP supremo said that Congress did no development and in the UPA's 10 years' rule and only corruption cases came before the people. She alleged that due to wrong policies of Congress, Dalits were harassed and as a result they took wrong path, saying instead of reforming them through development, emphasis was given on arrest and killing as a result they became Naxals.

"When BSP was in government in Uttar Pradesh, it had launched a special campaign to bring Naxals in the mainstream of the society," Mayawati said. The BSP supremo said that Uttar Pradesh gave several Prime Ministers, but it was most backward today, because Congress governments framed all the policies to benefit capitalists and not to resolve the problems of 'sarvsamaj' (all sections of the society).

She claimed that only the BSP was the well-wisher of the 'sarvsamaj' and could protect its interests.
