Lucknow: BSP president Mayawati on Saturday advised the Modi government to review its policies and working style with an open mind, and remove the shortcomings.

“On the completion of one year of BJP government at the Centre today, many claims have been made, but it would be better if they are not far from the ground reality and public perception/understanding,” Mayawati tweeted.

The Bahujan Samaj Party leader said the tenure had been surrounded by a lot of controversies in most cases, adding that the government must seriously think in the interest of the country and the people.

“The lives of most of the poor, unemployed, farmers, migrant labourers and women of the 130 crore population of the country have remained much more painful than before, which is very sad and which cannot be forgotten soon,” she said.

In such a situation, Mayawati added, the Centre needed to review is policies and working style with an open mind, and wherever there had been any shortcomings, they should remove them instead of covering it up.

This is the advice of the BSP to them in the interest of the country and public, she added.
