‘Yes, I have built memorials and statues to commemorate the rich contribution of such personalities who had done yeoman social service and reforms, but their work never received due recognition in successive Congress governments or the other regimes,’ she said.
Justifying the allocation of more than Rs.6,000 crore towards these memorials, she asserted: ‘Whatever I have spent each year towards commemoration of these icons was not more than one percent of the state’s annual budget.’
‘What my government has achieved over a period of three years, since we rode on to power entirely on our own strength, cannot be matched by any other political party that has ever remained in power in the state.’
Claiming there was ‘utter jungle raj’ when the BSP assumed office in May 2007, she said: ‘And I am proud of the fact that in three years, I have been able to create a terror-free, fear-free, crime-free, injustice-free and corruption-free environment by putting the law of the land back on the rails.’
In her view, her government ‘could have done wonders’ had the central government extended cooperation in adequately sharing the cost of various development programmes. She acused it of depriving the state of Rs.17,000 crore, ‘the state’s legitimate share towards various schemes already carried out over the past three years’.
Focussing on the Congress-led government’s ‘conspiracy’ against her regime, Mayawati recalled how New Delhi had not paid any attention to her repeated demand for a special economic package of Rs.80,000 crore for the uplift of Bundelkhand and Purvanchal.
