Uttar Pradesh polls 2017: Mayawati hits back at PM Modi, calls him Negative Dalit Man

In the war-of-words in Uttar Pradesh polls 2017 campaigns, BSP chief Mayawati on Monday reacts to PM Modi's jibe at Mayawati's BSP, dubbing the full name of PM Modi, Narendra Darmodas Modi, as 'Negative Dalit Man.'

Mayawati's remark came as a reply to PM Modi's statements, in which he termed the BSP as 'Behenji Sampatti Party' earlier on Monday.

Addressing a really in Sultanpur, Mayawati said: "The prime minister has compelled me to define Narendra Damodardas Modi as 'Mr Negative Dalit Man'."


The former UP chief minister,added that the sobriquet was inspired from PM Modi's work and behaviour.

"The Prime Minister is a sad man because of the BSP's rising popularity. He is taking cheap shots at the party's top leader and has termed BSP as Behenji Sampatti Party," Mayawati said.

On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Mayawati, saying that, the nature of the BSP has changed to 'Behenji Sampatti Party'.

Addressing a rally in Orai, PM Modi said: "Aren't the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) staunch rivals? But I was amazed when all the Opposition parties started speaking in one voice when I banned 500 and 1000 rupee notes and asked for records of black money hoarders."

Stepping up his attack at Mayawati, Prime Minister Modi said, "Behenji (Mayawati) said there was not enough planning. I asked her, planning by the government or you? She said a week should have been given. Had I done that, the people who looted would have vanished. The money would not have come to banks."

PM Modi added that the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister's problem with demonetisation was that she did not get enough time to prepare herself.
