Angry Priyanka brands Mayawati as BJP’s ‘unannounced spokesperson’
New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has targeted Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati for supporting the BJP-led NDA government’s stand on the India-China border faceoff. She accused Mayawati of becoming an “unannounced spokesperson” of the ruling party.
“As I said, some opposition leaders have become unannounced spokespersons of the BJP, which is beyond my comprehension,” she alleged.
In a blatant dig at Mayawati for supporting the BJP-led Centre’s stand, Priyanka remarked, “There is no point in standing with any political party at this time. Every Indians will have to stand with India, stand with the integrity of our land.”
The Congress general secretary’s dig comes in the wake of the BSP chief’s support for the ruling BJP on the issue and also her sharp criticism of the Congress. The BSP chief remarked that her party was formed because of the Congress’s “failure to do anything” for neglected sections of people, who Mayawati claims to represent.
An agitated Priyanka once again claimed on Monday that India has lost land to Chinese aggression. She claimed, “We have to build courage to fight against the government which has lost the land of the country.” This allegation comes despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi assuring the nation that India has not ceded even an inch of land to China.(IANS)
