Lucknow, Aug 30 - Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati Saturday trashed the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna and said that it was not going to benefit the poor and the weaker sections.
Talking to reporters in the state capital the Dalit leader said her party did not approve of the scheme as it will never benefit the 'real beneficiaries'.
She also said there was nothing to write home about the 100 days of the NDA government at the centre led by Narendra Modi.
They had made many promises in the run up to the Lok Sabha polls but in the past three months this government has disappointed every one, she said adding that the insurance dole in the PM Jan Dhan Yojna was never going to benefit the people as the insurance claims were never honoured in the country.
Insurance sector has a poor record, the least said the better, she said.
The 58-year-old leader also lashed out at the Samajwadi Party (SP) government in the state and said Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was presiding over anarchy in the state as there was no law and order.
Taking pot shots at SP chief and arch-rival Mulayam Singh Yadav, she said the world knows his views on women. It is no wonder that under his party's government in the state atrocities against women have skyrocketed, she added.
