Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati targeted Bharitya Janata party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at a really in Uttar Pradesh by saying that both the parties were trying to spread communal violence before the upcoming 2017 election in the state.

Mayawati warned the people against the “communal designs” of the RSS and the BJP and urged them not to lose their cool in the run-up to the 2017 Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.

She accused the Modi government of raising issues of cow slaughter and ‘love jihad’ to keep the minorities “under fear” as well as of being “anti-Dalit”.

Mayawati also attacked the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh alleging that it was “run by goondas”.
