Congress trying reservation card in UP polls: BJP
BJP leader Rajnath Singh termed religion-based quota a political stunt and said it would only help the Muslim elite.
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday alleged that the Congress was trying to make a place for itself in the Uttar Pradesh polls through reservation.
"Congress is trying to give people the opium of reservation to hijack votes. Today, they are remembering Muslim and Jat reservation. Tomorrow, they will remember some other reservation," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told in the national capital.
Speaking to a TV news channel, BJP leader Rajnath Singh termed religion-based quota "a political stunt" and said it would only help the Muslim elite.
"The government quota based on religion will benefit the elite class. Poor Muslims will not get any benefit," Singh said.
He also rejected any chance of forging an alliance with the Samajwadi Party or the Bahujan Samaj Party. "There is no question of forging an alliance with SP, or BSP," Singh said.
With the Election Commission announcing dates for polls in five states, the Uttar Pradesh is in the focus of attention, with a major battle between the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP), the Congress and the BJP.
Uttar Pradesh will see a seven-phase polling on February 4, 8, 11, 15, 19, 23 and 28.
