Political parties such as the BJP and the Congress represented only the interest of the rich and privileged classes, said Bahujan Samaj Party leader and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati.
Addressing an election campaign meeting of her party here on Saturday, she said these parties received huge amount of money from the big industrialists.
Ms Mayawati also alleged that parties like the BJP and the Congress were trying to sabotage reservation for the SC, ST, other backward classes and the minorities.
The quality of life of these communities did not improve because the Congress and the BJP were only worried about protecting only the interests of the rich, she reminded.
She asked the voters in Kerala to give a chance to her party as the people here are fed up with the Congress and the Left.
The BSP could perform well in Uttar Pradesh because of the welfare measures initiated by her party, she said.
The BSP has fielded candidates in 127 of the 140 constituencies of Kerala and hopes to improve its performance this time. It has not formed an alliance with any other party though that is the norm in Kerala
