Lucknow, Dec 31: Terming the recent sacking of ministers by Mayawati as a “drama”, the Congress today said the clean-up act by the Chief Minister was nothing but an attempt to salvage her image ahead of the assembly election.
“She has been dismissing ministers blaming them for all the ills facing her government. This is nothing but an attempt to salvage her image ahead of the assembly election,” UPCC president Rita Bahuguna Joshi said.
Terming the exercise as a “drama”, she said this would have no impact at the hustings as people had understood the gameplan of Mayawati who continued with these ministers during most part of her tenure.
Questiong the credentials of minister Naseemuddin, Joshi said it was ironical Mayawati was handing over charges of all the dismissed ministers to a person who himself was under the scanner of Lokayukta.
