SP'>BSP supremo and UP Chief minister Mayawati said that the state government had launched several developmental schemes and programmes for the upliftment of the people but there was no support from the Congress government at the Centre. “Because of this, we were unable to carry out development of the state in the way we want. Whatever we have done, it is through the money generated through our own resources”.
Lambasting the opposition, she said: “Since the day we have come into power in the state, the parties in opposition have together tried to malign the image of both the Bahujan Samaj Party and the state government. Various charges are levelled against our government in the state.”
