Responding to Prime Minister Modi’s statement that, Mayawati is shedding crocodile tears, over Alwar gang-rape incident, Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) supremo, said Modi might not be able to understand about women’s honour as he himself “let down his wife.” She was addressing a press conference in Delhi.
She also accused Modi of indulging in dirty politics and asked for his resignation over the Dalit atrocities that happened during his tenure.
“As you all know, yesterday the PM showed fake love for Dalits in his rally in UP. He should know he will not benefit from this. Dalits have not forgotten Saharanpur (2017 violence) here. I was not even allowed to speak in the Rajya Sabha. The Rohit Vemula case also has not been forgotten,” she said.
She also questioned what right PM Modi has to talk about Alwar rape incident when he didn’t even offer to resign over the case.
“Modi doesn’t have the right to speak about the rape of a Dalit woman in Alwar. He spoke only after I spoke. He is playing bad politics over this so he can gain in politics. What will he know about respecting women when he left his own wife for politics. What does the PM know about the honour of women when he himself let down his wife,” she added.
