New Delhi: A day after Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad launched his Lok Sabha election campaign in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's constituency Varanasi, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo said his move would only benefit the BJP by dividing Dalit votes.

She said the formation of the Bhim Army was a BJP conspiracy and it only revealed the saffron party’s anti-Dalit mindset and "despicable politics".

Renewing her allegations of Azad being a BJP agent, Mayawati said the saffron party tried to put him in the BSP as a spy, but the move had failed.

In her appeal to the electorate to make sure that their votes count, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said it was in the national interest that the "autocratic", "despotic anti-Dalit, OBC and minorities" BJP be removed from power.




Except for the BJP, which has announced Modi’s candidature from Varanasi, no other party has come up yet with any face for the seat.

In 2014, the constituency had witnessed high-voltage canvassing when Delhi chief minister and AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal had contested and lost against Modi.

Commencing his roadshow on Saturday after garlanding a statue of BR Ambedkar, Azad alleged the PM had only favoured the rich by waiving their loan worth billions of rupees, but “harassed” small borrowers and the poor.
