Mayawati's anxiety is making her say so: KP Maurya on her PM Modi 'Fake OBC' remark

Updated: Apr 19, 2019 18:17 IST

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh)[India], Apr 19 : Utttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Friday slammed Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) chief Mayawati over her “Mulayam Singh not a ‘Fake OBC’ leader like PM Modi” remarks.
“It is Mayawati's anxiety that is making her say so. On one hand, you have 'nakli bhatija' (fake nephew) on other you have 'nakli bua.' (fake aunt). They are insulting the Prime Minister by using such language,” Maurya told ANI while launching a scathing attack on Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav and the BSP Supremo.
The statements of the Deputy Chief Minister comes after Mayawati said Samajwadi Party (SP) founder Mulayam Singh Yadav is the only "real" backward community leader in the country and not a 'fake OBC' leader like Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“There is no doubt that he (Mulayam) has joined people from all groups of the society under the SP banner. He does not come from a fake backward community like PM Modi, he is real OBC leader,” she said while addressing a rally here on Friday. 
Voting for the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh concluded with a turnout of 67.55 per cent on Thursday.
The remaining 64 seats will go to polls in the next five phases of elections, and counting of votes will take place on May 23.
