Lok Sabha elections 2019: BSP supremo Mayawati on Saturday attacked BJP government and said the saffron party has started inaugurating projects in UP only now when general elections are near.
“BJP govt has started inaugurating projects in UP only now when general elections are near. PM has laid the foundation stone of Purvanchal Expressway today.
