Apologise now for criticising my Dalit memorials, Mayawati tells BJP
November 01, 2018
Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Wednesday sought an apology from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for terming the Dalit memorials and statues built by her government as an “extravagance” after Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the Rs 3000 crore, 182-metre high statue of India’s first home minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, in Gujarat.
“BJP and RSS leaders used to attack my government over the construction of Dalit memorials and statues, including of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar, in Lucknow and Noida. Now these leaders should tender an apology for condemning my government,” she said in a statement.
