Claiming that the BJP and the Congress were competing with each other over who is the biggest ‘Hindutvawadi’ and ‘Hindu Bhakt’, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Chairman Mayawati said on Tuesday that both parties were working against the intent of the country’s constitution by neglecting other religions.

“It has been known for some time that competition is going on between the BJP and the Congress to show who is the Hindutvwadi, the Hindu Bhakt and the expert in performing religious rituals. This shows that both parties are ignoring other religions, except the Hindus,” the BSP chief said in a statement in Hindi.

“BSP respects all religions equally, and both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress should similarly take care of the interests of all religions,” she added.

Alleging that religious places and records are being tampered with, Mayawati said, “It affects harmony and brotherhood, and disturbs law and order. We are also seeing this in Maharashtra where the situation is getting so bad that the demand for the imposition of chief rule in the state is getting stronger.” .

The BSP chief also objected to the demolition of shrines (shrines) in BJP-ruled Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. “Mazars in UP and Uttarakhand are being demolished by claiming that they were built on government land… BSP does not agree with this and the party objects to it,” said Mayawati.

Why didn’t the governments stop it when these shrines were built on government land? Mazar has been around for several years, and the sudden plan to demolish it is not appropriate. Politics seems to be more. Hurting someone’s feelings for the sake of political interest is not an appropriate move,” Mayawati said, adding that religious frenzy is spreading in the country under the guise of “love jihad” and forced religious conversion and the public should be careful about this issue.

Declaring assembly elections contested in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Telangana, Mayawati declared the BJP and Congress alleging that Dalits, tribes and other backward castes (OBCs) are being “harassed at every level in Congress-governed Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party”. “Our party will contest the upcoming assembly elections in these four states on the issues of harassment of Dalits, tribals, farmers and the poor,” she said, adding that she has deputed BSP National Coordinator Akash Anand and Central Coordinator for these. Ramji Gautam mentions the preparations and launch of an election campaign on these issues from this month.

The BSP has already launched its election campaign in Telangana with a Mayawati public meeting held a few weeks ago.
