BSP supremo Mayawati today cautioned the voters that if Narendra Modi became the prime minister, the country would slip into the hands of communal forces, and appealed to Dalits and Muslims to back her party to prevent such an eventuality. "It's important that Dalits and Muslims should vote for BSP in these elections. If BJP leader Narendra Modi becomes the prime minister, the country will go in hands of communal forces," she told election meetings. "If you all want to see 'Dalit ki beti' as the prime minister you all should vote for BSP so that it could emerge as 'balance of power' at the Centre after polls," she said. Maintaining that there is no rule of law in Uttar Pradesh now unlike during the BSP regime, she said goons and mafia were calling the shots in the state at present.

Top Shia leaders announced their decision Tuesday after a meeting late Monday night in the city, an official said. "Remember the Gujarat riots before voting for the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. It's the RSS which is trying to make him a hero," Khoja Ashan Ashri Jamaat president Safdar Karmali said on behalf of various groups.

No words or sentences are inaudible. “In many of India’s villages and cities, Muslims have been doing this sort of thing for a long time. They buy one building at high price, and then buy out at half-price the surrounding buildings owned by Hindus This is a part of their strategy. How can this be stopped? It can be stopped in two ways.
