Calling everything “Fair in BJP brand of politics”, BSP supremo Mayawati on Friday ridiculed the saffron party for "engineering defection" of four TDP MPs in the Rajya Sabha.
She took to Twitter to express her disappointment:
"Yesterday (Thursday), when the president was giving assurances to the country on the behalf of the government, the BJP on the same day engineered defection of four TDP MPs."
In an advantage for BJP, four of the six TDP MPs in the Rajya Sabha joined the party on Thursday and sought a merger of the TDP Legislature Party with it in the Upper House.
Mayawati claimed that the BJP had earlier called two of those MPs as "corrupt", but now after joining their party, the lawmakers have become "doodh ka dhula" (pure).
"It is clear that everything is fair in BJP brand of politics and nothing is wrong," she added.
Telugu Desam Party (TDP) includes YS Chowdary, CM Ramesh, Garikapati Mohan Rao and TG Venkatesh.
