A DAY after he was expelled from BSP, Naseemuddin Siddiqui on Thursday alleged that Mayawati had demanded Rs 50 crore from him while also accusing her of having made objectionable remarks against Muslims.
At a crowded press conference here, an angry Siddiqui levelled a allegations against his former political boss Mayawati and some other BSP leaders claimed that he had so much material that it could cause an “earthquake”. He also claimed that there was a threat to his life. Rebutting point-wise the charges levelled against him by at the time of his expulsion on Wednesday, Siddiqui played six audio clippings of his telephonic conversations with Mayawati to back his allegation that money had been demanded from him.
Siddiqui said he possessed 150 such audio clippings. “She (Mayawati) was sore after the dismal showing of the BSP in the recent Assembly elections and termed Muslims as betrayers for not voting for the party,” Siddiqui alleged.
Accusing Mayawati of having referred to “bearded Muslims as dogs”, Siddiqui claimed he had objected to the remark.
He also attacked BSP General Secretary Satish Misra, alleging he was trying to weaken the party.
“BSP is being knowingly weakened by Mayawati and Anand Kumar (her brother) under a conspiracy by Satish Mishra and Company...People are also of the view that since Mayawati has attained the height which she wanted to reach, she herself wants to end BSP so that no other among the Dalit Samaj could reach this far,” a visibly angry Siddiqui said.
The former BSP leader said that he had “solid evidence” against Mayawati but would only speak about the charges levelled against him as of now.
“I have so much material that if I open my mouth it can cause an earthquake....I know her more than anyone else...If I give the proof against Mayawati, Anand and Mishra it will be a big ‘tamasha’,” he said.
