Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Sunday announced the party's plan to embark on their election campaign from Ayodhya  with an objective to "awaken" the Brahmin community. Dissuading the Brahmin fraternity from casting their votes for BJP will be the primary aim of the campaign.

While addressing the media, Mayawati said she has full confidence on the fact that people of the "Brahmin community will not get misled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and vote for the party in the upcoming elections".

"A campaign, led by BSP general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra, will be started from Ayodhya on July 23 to awaken the Brahmin community once again. The Brahmins will be assured that their interests will remain safe under the BSP regime," she said.

On the farmers' issue, Mayawati said all political parties should come together and hold the Centre accountable.

"The indifferent attitude of the Centre towards farmers protesting against the three farm laws is extremely sad. It is necessary that pressure of all kinds is put on the Centre in Parliament. Due to the wrong economic policies of the central government, there is rising unemployment and inflation, which is posing hardships to the people," she said.

Mayawati said the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MPs, during the Monsoon session of Parliament, will raise issues such as rise in fuel and cooking gas prices and matters related to COVID-19 vaccination.

"There are a number of issues on which the public wants accountability of the government," she said.

The Monsoon session of Parliament begins on Monday.
