Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati today alleged misuse of funds, resources and time over the International Yoga Day function which is to take place in Lucknow tomorrow.
"Instead of fulfilling its prime constitutional duty by using its power, resources and time towards providing jobs to crores of jobless poor, farmers, labourers to help them get two square meals, the Modi government is using government funds and machinery on the well-off people," Ms Maywati said.
She said she supported the people who were protesting against the "anti-poor and anti-farmers" function saying their action was justified.
She said she supported those protesting against the "wrong policies and working" of the BJP-led government which have further compounded the problems of the unemployed and farmers and has also forced them to commit suicide.
She said farmers will now hold peaceful dharna at the Niti Ayog and Jantar Mantar in Delhi from next month to draw government's attention over it.
