Attacking the BJP, BSP chief Mayawati alleged today that the killing of a Dalit student in Allahabad was the result of narrow and casteist politics of hatred being pursued by the state's ruling party.
"The barbaric murder of a Dalit student in Allahabad is not an isolated case as such incidents are occurring on a regular basis. And no one else but the BJP's narrow, casteist politics of hatred is responsible for it," she said in a press release here.
Mayawati said that such incidents had vitiated the atmosphere in the country and the youth were experiencing frustration because of dearth of jobs for the educated ones among the 'sarv samaj'. There is also an increase in crime, she added.
