The Congress party’s announcement that 40 per cent of total election tickets would be awarded to women sparked a political war of words from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Mayawati-led opposition. Mayawati accused Congress of “chunavi natak” (political drama), and said that Congress only remembers Dalits and women at election time.
“When the Congress is in power and they have good days, they don’t remember Dalits, wonders, women etc., but now when their bad days are not gone, they remember women in UP as Dalits in Punjab. The announcement that 40 percent of tickets will be awarded to women,” Miawati said. It’s just an election drama.
1. When the Congress is in power and they have good days, they do not remember Dalits, wonders, women etc., but now when their bad days are not gone, like Dalits in Punjab, they have remembered the women in UP. The ad giving him 40 percent of tickets is pure election drama.

She added, “If Congress’s concern for women is just and honest, why didn’t they pass the law to grant 33 percent of reservations to women when they were in power in the middle and legislatures? The nature of Congress is ‘to say something and do something’ which raises a question mark about its intention and policy.” “.
2. If Congress’s concern for women is just and sincere, then why has their government at the center not made a law to allocate 33 percent to women in Parliament and legislatures? The nature of Congress is to “say something and do something” which raises a question mark about its intention and policy.

She added that women make up about half of the population in Uttar Pradesh and the country and sincere efforts are required not only for their well-being but also for their safety and security, which both the Congress and the BJP have failed.
On the other hand, the BJP criticized the Congress saying that Priyanka Gandhi kept silent when she was asked about a leader in the Congress accused of rape.
When it comes to the accused son of rape, Congress Leader Priyanka Vadra stops talking.

“The irony: Priyanka Vadra was talking about empowering women when the question was asked. Freedom of the press?” Amit Melfia said.
He added, “It is sad that while Gandhi’s pontificate on women’s empowerment, not a single day goes by in Rajasthan, a state governed by Congress, when women are not raped or molested, often by Dalits.”
Priyanka Gandhi today officially launched the “Ladki Hun, Lad Sakti Hun” Congress campaign while announcing the reservation of concert tickets. Uttar Pradesh will go to the polls early next year.
