Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati today stated that the BJP President Amit Shah is showing “superficial concern” for the Dalits and further went on to say that the ‘Dhamma Chetna Yatra’, taken out by Buddhist monks in favour of the BJP is a “big flop”.

BSP supremo further stated that people of Uttar Pradesh had seen through the game plan of the BJP President of trying to woo them at times of election by such high-decibel events.

“There were no real people in the Yatra, those present belonged to the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS),” she claimed, alleging that Shah was heard only by a handful of “fake” Dalits. “The BJP does not like a self-respecting, independent Dalit leader like me and is only interested in slave (ghulam) Dalit leaders but they will not succeed in their designs,” she said.
