Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati alleged on Monday that the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress were anti-Dalit parties and were trying to 'abolish' the reservation system.
Mayawati made the remarks while addressing an election rally in support of a BSP candidate in the Amber constituency of Jaipur.
B R Ambedkar fought for reservation for the deprived section of society, but the BJP and the Congress are now working against it, she alleged.
"Both the parties disrespect Dalits, and they are now trying to abolish the reservation system," the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister alleged.
She claimed no government at the Centre accomplished anything 'remarkable' in terms of welfare of the poor, Dalits, religious minorities, tribal people since independence.
