Lucknow:  Slamming the Congress manifesto as a "bundle of hollow promises", BSP chief Mayawati on Wednesday accused the party of using the dalits as a votebank and trying to divide the community under a "planned conspiracy" by promising them sub-quota.

"The Congress manifesto is nothing but a bundle of hollow promises which cannot be fulfilled .The Congress has been making such promises since the past 60 years and this has led to the bad state of affairs of the state and country," the UP chief minister said in a statement.

She said had the UPA government given permission to the schemes of her government, it would have given employment to more than one crore people.

"The manifesto is an attempt to mislead the people by making tall promises," she said adding that Congress has only played with the sentiments of the people by following "appeasement policy...Congress has never been a well wisher of dalits and have always used them as vote bank".

The Congress manifesto, she said, has no new promise or scheme on which the people of the state should believe besides the schemes announced were already brought into effect by her.

Taking a dig at the promise of pursuing an equitable solution of the Babri Mosque dispute, she said that "first Congress conspired to pull down the mosque and now it was trying to please Muslims".

On the promise of sub-quota to 'ati-dalits', she said that it is a planned conspiracy to divide dalit votes.

Congress had on Tuesday promised reservation for socially and economically backward minorities and very backward dalits in proportion to their population.
