NEW DELHI — Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Friday attacked the central government for putting ban on PFI and its affiliates for a period of five year saying the ban on the Popular Front of India ahead of elections in some states was an act of “political selfishness” aimed at appeasing the RSS.

After the ban on PFI, Mayawati said, there is country-wide demand to ban RSS as if PFI is a danger to internal security then why no ban on other such organisations.

Taking to Twitter, BSP chief said in Hindi, “After targeting PFI (Popular Front of India) in various ways across the country, the Centre has finally banned it along with eight of its affiliates before assembly elections and considering it a policy of political selfishness and appeasement of the Sangh, there is less of satisfaction and more of restlessness.”

In another twwet shed said, “This is the reason why the opposition parties are angry and attacking on this issue considering the government’s intentions to be flawed and the demand for banning the RSS is also openly being raised that if PFI is a danger for the internal security of the country why should other organisations like it should also not be banned?

Notably, the Centre on Wednesday banned the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its associates and affiliates for a period of five years in the wake of nationwide raids against the organisation by law enforcement agencies.

The affiliates reportedly include Rehab India Foundation (RIF), Campus Front of India (CFI), All India Imams Council (AIIC), National Confederation of Human Rights Organisation (NCHRO), National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala as an “unlawful association”.
