He added, "Mayawati formed government in Uttar Pradesh with support of BJP three times. Now she has not utter a single word against the Dalit atrocities happening in the state for the last five years. When the Dalit daughter of Hathras, brutally murdered and then cremated overnight by the Yogi Police of Uttar Pradesh against the wishes of her family or any other incident, she remained silent as fear of CBI kept on haunting her. Now in the final hours of the elections, she is trying to mislead the Dalit community by speaking like a BJP spokesperson,"

PL Punia further said, "According to the NCRB data, Uttar Pradesh has topped the entire nation in Dalit atrocities during Yogi rule. Recently, a case of murder of Dalit youth Arun Valmiki came to light inside the Agra police station. The agitation by Uttar Pradesh Congress in-charge Priyanka Gandhi against all the incidents of Dalits and tribal atrocities remained in the media headlines, which has been seen by the whole country. The Uttar Pradesh Congress alone raised its voice against every Dalit oppression and brought the guilty to the end."
