Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati on Tuesday rubbished the allegations made against her by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks that she had sent a special jet to Mumbai to bring in her favourite sandals.
Calling it a political conspiracy ahead of elections, the BSP chief said WikiLeaks owner has either gone mad or supporting her opponents.
Mayawati said Assange needs to be admitted in a mental asylum. “And, if there is no such asylum in his country, they can send him to UP and I will make arrangements for his admission in the mental asylum in Agra,” she said.
Mayawati said that media reports based on the WikiLeaks about her right hand man and party general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra and cabinet secretary Sheshank Shekhar Singh were baseless and distorted and were a part of a conspiracy to break the unity of the BSP and defame her government.
