"PM's Gujarat legacy black spot not only for him but country": Mayawati
Bahujan Samaj Party chief launched a fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi today by calling his "Gujarat legacy a black spot". "PM Modi has been Gujarat chief minister for a longer time than me (in Uttar Pradesh), but his legacy is such that it is a black spot not only on himself, but also on the BJP and a burden on the communal history of the country," Mayawati told reporters, according to news agency PTI.
Mayawati's counter-attack comes a day after PM Modi took a jibe at her and Akhilesh Yadav, another former Uttar Pradesh chief minister whose Samajwadi Party is jointly contesting the national election with the BSP. "I challenge them to show if I have any undeclared assets, farmhouses, or shopping complex, or whether my money is stashed in foreign banks. Prove that I have any property in any foreign land, bungalows worth crores, high-end cars worth lakhs and crores of rupees," PM Modi said during a rally in Ballia in UP.
