In a press briefing, Mayawati on Sunday held both parties accountable for the poor condition of migrant workers in the country amid the lockdown. She alleges that Congress did nothing for the poor during they were in power.
It didn’t make any arrangement for them in their native places for earning the livelihood while it forced them to move outside from their home, she added.
She further derided Congress for claiming that BSP will soon join hands with BJP and cleared that her Party will not contest elections in alliance with BJP or Congress at any cost in future.
The BSP chief also stated that video made Congress leaders seems to be less concerned and more drama, adding that had the Congress told migrant workers about how many people have actually been helped, it would have been better.
Similarly, Union Minister Naqvi also criticised the video and stated that the Congress Party should instead help in providing a solution to the problems faced by migrants.
