New Delhi, Nov 14 (PTI) BJP today attributed BSP supremo Mayawati’s criticism of the government’s demonetisation move to her “frustration” as crores of rupees she had allegedly collected by “selling” assembly election tickets have turned into garbage.
The party also rejected her attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as low-level politics not worthy of a reply and alleged that she had turned BSP into a “shop” while it was a movement under its founder and her mentor Kanshi Ram.
While Modi has taken strong actions on the issue of national security and black money, both of which were his key elections issues in 2014 Lok Sabha polls, she had spoken against the army’s surgical strike as well the government’s surgical strike against black money.
“She has levelled some petty allegations against the Prime Minister. It is a very low level politics and we condemn it. The fact is that she had collected crores of rupees by selling BSP tickets and all the money have become garbage now.
She is frustrated and out of this is levelling irrational charges,” BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma told reporters.
With his measures against black money and corruption Modi has taken a big measures for the benefits of poor but whenever he does anything that helps dalits, she targets him, he said.
Stung by the apparent reference to her in Modi’s “garland of notes” remark, Mayawati unleashed a no-holds-barred attack on the Prime Minister, saying he cannot tolerate that a “dalit ki beti” is presented such a garland.
Sharma said she has become a “daulat ki beti” (daughter of wealth).
