The second day of the monsoon session witnessed an unexpected move by the Bahujan Samajwadi Party Chief Mayawati. She proposed a heated argument on the atrocities the ruling BJP at the centre and all the BJP ruled states were levying on the Dalits and the poor.
She attacked the ruling BJP, Yogi Adiytyanath government at Uttar Pradesh saying that the government was deliberately targeting the poor and backward classes. The party was practicing its age old tradition of casteism, communal and capitalist mindset and their motive of keeping their political interest and gains uppermost. She demanded more time to speak about the grievances faced by the poor people in UP but Deputy Chairperson PJ Kurien refused to give her more time.
Responding to this Mayawati angrily said that if she did not have the right to speak in the house and put forth the difficulties faced by the people she represented than she did not have the right to even hold the position in the parliament and a few hours later she gave a three page long resignation to the Vice President. However, her resignation was not accepted as she did not follow the proceedings of the house required for the resignation.
Backing BSP Chief, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav on Wednesday said that Dalit movements are increasing day by day in the country. The Centre not allowing Mayawati to speak in the Assembly is highly atrocious and unjust.
