“Apart from the locals, a large number of pilgrims from other states had lost their lives which distressed our party. In this hour of disaster, our party prays that nature provides the family of the victims the strength to bear the loss,” she said, while addressing a rally.

Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati took a jibe at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over reports that he rescued 15,000 Gujaratis from flood ravaged Uttarakhand.

“The leader of the party who dreams of being India’s Prime Minister and goes to the flood-hit state of Uttarakhand and talks about rescuing the people of Gujarat state only. Giving a national thought, he did not speak about rescuing stranded people from all states,” she said, while addressing a rally here. Mayawati also sympathised with the kin of victims killed in flash floods of Uttarakhand, and asked her party cadres to provide all kinds of assistance to the families of the hill state.

“Apart from the locals, a large number of pilgrims from other states had lost their lives which distressed our party. In this hour of disaster, our party prays that nature provides the family of the victims the strength to bear the loss,” she said, while addressing a rally here.

Trying to lure the gathered crowd, Mayawati said that her party was aiming at fostering brotherhood with the people from upper caste.
