Questioning the timing of the decision when elections were drawing near in states like UP and Punjab, Mayawati said, “This is because they (BJP) have not fulfilled even one-fourth of their promises made before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls… the PM has hurt the poor and middle class,” she said.

“The PM said that his government made preparations for past 10 months before announcing the decision… The general refrain is that Modi only focused on how to settle the money of some top BJP leaders and industrialists in these 10 months,” Mayawati said.
