Accusing the BJP of misusing power for political gains, BSP supremo Mayawati on Wednesday said that 'anarchy' prevailed in the country owing to the saffron party government's policies.

Speaking to reporters on the occasion of her 64th birth anniversary here, Mayawati said that the Centre did not consult anyone before implementing the CAA and sought Indian citizenship for the 'persecuted' Muslims also.

''A state of anarchy prevails in the country....law and order situation has taken a turn for the worse....we are witnessing violence everywhere..the economic situation is very bad in the country...it is a cause for concern,'' the BSP supremo said.

She said that the BJP government was following the footsteps of the UPA government. ''The BJP will also meet the fate of the Congress....the saffron party will lose more states in future,'' she added.

The BSP leader said that the CAA was 'unconstitutional' and must be scrapped. ''The Centre did not consult anyone before implementing the CAA....it is against the constitution,'' she remarked.

''Our party had suggested that the CAB be sent to the standing committee and effort should be made to form a consensus on the matter but the centre did not heed our suggestion,'' Mayawati said.

The BSP supremo also said that the police commissioner system in Lucknow and Noida would not be useful in tackling crimes there. ''There is a need to change the mindset first...merely by having police commissioners will not yield any result,'' she added.
