itical mudslinging has reached new heights as voting for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections draws to a close.

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati took a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again over the Alwar gangrape case.

Mayawati claimed that women legislators in the Bharatiya Janata Party fear that if PM Modi meets their husbands, they will leave their wives as PM Modi did.

“In BJP, married women leaders get scared when they see their husbands around PM Modi. They fear that this Modi will separate them from their husbands,” Mayawati claimed in a press conference.

The comment came in the backdrop of the political blame game that has erupted over the Alwar gangrape case. BSP chief Mayawati accused the prime minister of playing dirty politics over the case that has brought the Rajasthan government in the dock.

Mayawati claimed that PM Modi does not respect women as he has left his own wife.

“Narendra Modi was silent on Alwar gangrape case. He’s trying to play dirty politics over it. So that in the elections his party benefits. It is extremely shameful. How can he respect others’ sisters and wives when he has left his own wife for political gains?” alleged Mayawati.

Mayawati accused PM Modi of raking up the issue for Dalit votes. “The PM wanted to attract Dalit votes so he is showing fake love for Dalits in his rallies. Dalits have not forgotten Shabbirpur incident. Dalits have not forgotten the Rohith Vemula and Una incidents either,” she added.

BJP candidate from Puri in Odisha, Sambit Patra reacted to Mayawati’s comment, tweeting, “I was listening to Mayawati ji on TV. The words that she has used for PM Modi are deeply hurtful. What kind of mentality is this? Such hatred for Modi ji? Why? Because he considered the country his family over his real family? Mayawati ji for you your brother is bigger but for Modi ji the country is bigger.”

There are many types of words that uses by other parties
