Here are the highlights of her press conference:
#The government is trying to deviate the attention from its failures.
#All citizens want a corruption-free India.
#BJP is repeating what Congress did in the past.
#BJP government has created an emergency situation in the country.
#90 percent of people are not happy with this note ban.
#In two-and-a-half years of their governance, they have tried to benefit the big businessmen, tycoons.
#Central government does not like Dalit, says Mayawati.
#People are facing problems at medical stroes as they are not accepting the old currency notes.
#Soon after the announcement of note ban, people were forced to shut down their shops, people are badly affected by it.
#PM Modiâ€™s decision is bit selfish, if they really wanted to curb black money then why they took this decision after two years.
#To hide their inefficiency, economic emergency like situations have been created by the govt as elections in UP are coming close.
#Banning of notes in the name of crackdown on black money reflects only blind following by people.
