Thiruvananthapuram: BSP chief Mayawati on Thursday attacked the Congress saying the people need jobs and not cash put in their bank account.

She also lashed out at the BJP government at the Centre for failing to fulfil promises made five years ago.
She said the farmers were in deep distress, unemployment, price rise and attack on Muslims and other marginalised sections including Dalits had increased manifold.
