Bahujan Samaj Party chief Maywati on Saturday called out media and BJP for allgedly twisting the Supreme Court's remarks about Dalit Prerna sthals built by her government in Noida and Lucknow.

Manniya nyayalay mein apna paksh zarur puri majbuti ke sath aage bhi rakha jayega. humein pura bharosa hai ki iss mamle mein bhi ma. nyayalay se pura insaf milega. media v bjp ke log kati patang na bane toh behtar hoga (I request media not to present a twisted version of Supreme Court's statement. We will present our case in front of the court and we trust that the justic will prevail. It would be better if media and BJP do not behave like a 'kati patang')," Mayawati tweeted. 

Sadiyon se triskrit Dalit v pichhde varg mein janmein mahan santo, guruyon v mahapurushon ke aadar-samman mein nirmit bhavya sthal/smarak/park aadi Uttar Pradesh ki nayi shaan, pahchan v vyast prayatan sthal, jiske aakarshan se sarkar ko niyamit aay bhi hoti hai, she said about the parks in another tweet.
