Former UP chief minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) National President Mayawati tweeted this morning about the Samajwadi Party. “SP is not only a very backward party but also a very anti-Dalit party. Although BSP, by forming an alliance with SP in the last Lok Sabha general elections, tried to change their anti-Dalit tactics, character and face. But after the elections were over, SP again came back to its anti-Dalit casteist agenda,” Mayawati posted on X.
1. सपा अति-पिछड़ों के साथ-साथ जबरदस्त दलित-विरोधी पार्टी भी है, हालाँकि बीएसपी ने पिछले लोकसभा आमचुनाव में सपा से गठबन्धन करके इनके दलित-विरोधी चाल, चरित्र व चेहरे को थोड़ा बदलने का प्रयास किया। लेकिन चुनाव खत्म होने के बाद ही सपा पुनः अपने दलित-विरोधी जातिवादी एजेण्डे पर आ गई।
