In a series of Tweets, BSP chief said that to get rid of all kinds of false promises of the BJP, it is necessary that the ruling party should be changed.

In another tweet, she said, "ruling party's wrong policies which made the poor people more poorer, should not be trusted anymore and that BSP should be trusted."

Mayawati added, "the biggest failure of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is not being able to provide employment to the people. In fact, the employment opportunities that were there were also snatched away from the people"
