LUCKNOW - Aiming to build the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) base in Uttarakhand, party supremo and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Tuesday blamed the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the backwardness in the hill state.
Uttarakhand has been either under a BJP or a Congress rule since its inception in 2000, therefore, if the state has failed to show any signs of growth in these 10 years, none else could be blamed, Mayawati said in a statement issued here.
Earlier in the day, she met party members from Uttarakhand here on the issue of strengthening the party in the hill state.
Mayawati asked partymen to spread the word across Uttarakhand about the BSP’s contribution to the creation of that state.
You must remind the people of Uttarakhand that it the BSP government which passed the first resolution in the Uttar Pradesh assembly for the creation of an independent hill state of Uttarakhand in 1995,” she told the gathering.
The districts of Udham Singh Nagar, Champawat, Bageshwar and Rudra Prayag were created by my government, Mayawati asserted.
