Lucknow, Dec 6: Choosing the occasion of Dalit icon B R Ambedkar's death anniversary, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati today made it clear that her ultimate aim is to secure power at the Centre.
Addressing a rally here, she asked the workers of BSP not to get “distracted” by various “hurdles” being created by the opposition parties to deflect the party from its objective of forming a government at the Centre.
Mayawti hit out at opposition parties for targeting her government and the party and said such attacks would only work in her advantage in the assembly elections due next year.
“The functioning of our party and the government is based on the movement of Baba Sahib (B R Ambedkar)...The opposition is not happy and is trying to push back the movement, especially when assembly elections are near,” she said.
“Whenever the BSP or its government has been attacked, we have shown better results...Such attacks only help wake up those cadres who are sleeping. It is only to our advantage,” she said.
