Lucknow, May 22 : Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Supremo Mayawati on Friday slammed the Congress-led Rajasthan government for charging over Rs 36 lakh as transportation cost for ferrying back students of Uttar Pradesh from Kota. "The move shows Congress' "depravity" and "inhumanity"," she alleged. In several tweets, the BSP Supremo lashed out at the Congress Party and alleged that Rajasthan government is charging arbitrary fare to send UP students back in some of their buses from Kota.
"The Congress government in Rajasthan has demanded Rs 36.36 lakh more from the UP government for the expenditure incurred on sending about 12,000 young students back from Kota to their homes, reflecting its depravity and inhumanity. Such disgusting politics between two neighbouring states is extremely sad," she tweeted on Friday. "But on the one hand, the Rajasthan Congress government is charging arbitrary fare to send UP students back in some of their buses from Kota, on the other hand, talking about buses to send migrant labourers to their homes in UP, it is playing a political game, How appropriate and humane is that?" she further wondered. Meanwhile, the BSP president and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also expressed grief over the devastation caused by cyclone Amphan in West Bengal and urged the Centre to step up efforts in supporting the state.
"The devastation caused by cyclone Amphan in West Bengal is very saddening. Life has been badly affected. The Centre should come forward and help the state government in restoring normalcy there," Mayawati said in her extended tweets. (UNI)
