Mayawati also accused BJP of using all possible means to ensure that the Budget session of the Lok Sabha was a washout this time because Modi did not want a discussion on the no-confidence motion that was moved by its former allies. "BJP workers should spread the word about Modi government's works, and set the stage for 2019 Lok Sabha election".
"Rahul baba and some others are saying that we are demolishing reservation for SCs and STs".

"Rahul ji, (Sharad) Pawar sahab, open your ears and listen". BJP will never end the reservation policy. He said BJP won't allow to remove reservation.
BJP president Amit Shah appears to be in desperation as he was sure of his party's defeat in Karnataka elections and that is why he was abusing the Opposition parties, said Congress senior leader V. Hanumantha Rao. And he followed up this scathing and very effective, largely because it is true, political attack by declaring that the countdown to the Lok Sabha election had begun.
Striking a stinging blow at the Congress, Amit Shah noticed that while Congress is rejoicing at BJP's drubbing in 2 seats, BJP on the other hand has seized 11 states from Congress under Prime Minister Modi's leadership. People of the country have seen the work done by the NDA government.
Speaking on the Supreme Court's amendment of the SC/ST Act, Shah said his party is not going to abolish reservation from the nation. Since then, the BJP has suffered in successive bypolls in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, even as the Opposition has started bandying together to form an anti-BJP front.
CPI leader D Raja said this is not the language one expects from the president of a national party.
Shah said the Congress had all along ignored the demands of the farmers but the Modi government has made a decision to give one and a half times the production cost of rabi and kharif produce to farmers.
Replying to a question about relations with its ally Shiv Sena, Shah said, Sena is an ally of the BJP in Centre and in Maharashtra. "The Modi government is on the same path", Shah said. "Nagpur MLA, Milind Bane, himself a doctor, was travelling in the same train and he checked Behre immediately", he said. Several residents in Mumbai complained about the traffic snarls in the city, including Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
