Kolkata[(West Bengal) [India], Feb. 24(ANI): Taking a swipe at 'Kasab' comment made by Bahujan Samaj Party(BSP) supremo Mayawati, the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) on Friday said that former has lost her mental stability. "Mayawati is not mentally stable. She can see defeat in front of her and that is why she is talking like that. Now a big portion of the dalit vote will come under the BJP," BJP leader Rahul Sinha told ANI. Sinha added that Mayawati should go through the political history of BJP national president Amit Shah before making any comment. "He is very grounded leader and comes from a humble background and Mayawati has not struggled that much," he added. Earlier, launching a scathing attack at Amit Shah over his 'Kasab' remark, Mayawati said, "there is no bigger 'Kasab' (terrorist) than the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president." The former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh further said Amit Shah's Kasab statement shows the cheapness of the saffron party. The BJP president drew flak from the opposition for devising 'KASAB' as an acronym for describing Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). "In the last fifteen years, the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) governments have ruined Uttar Pradesh. The two were enough for destruction, however, a third one has also arrived. The population of UP must get rid of this KASAB, and by this I mean - 'Ka' for Congress, 'S' for SP and 'B' for...," Shah said while addressing a rally in Chauri Chaura. While he didn't clearly mention the BSP, there was no denial from his side when the audience shouted 'BSP'.(ANI)
