In a statement she issued, the former Uttar Pradesh CM and chief of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) said, "President Ram Nath Kovind should have been invited for the bhoomi pujan in Ayodhya on August 5. His presence would have sent a good message. Dalit seers also expressed willingness to participate in the event but they were completely ignored." In a tweet on July 31, Mayawati had expressed dissatisfaction at lone D a l i t Mahamanadaleshwar of Juna Akhada, Swami Kanhaiya Prabhunandan Giri not being invited to the groundbreaking ceremony of the proposed Ram temple in Ayodhya. An invitation to him would have been proof of the fulfillment of the constitutional aim of the creation of a casteless society, she had added. Mayawati also slammed the Samajwadi Party (SP) for proposing a 108-foot tall statue of Lord Parshuram in Lucknow. The BSP chief termed the move an attempt to woo Brahmin voters.
