Speaking at a press conference, Ms. Mayawati said that Ms. Gandhi had called her up on Wednesday to inquire about the health of the Bahujan Samaj Party president, Kanshi Ram, who was hospitalised here following a brain haemorrhage.
Criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party for calling Ms. Gandhi a ``foreigner'', Ms. Mayawati said Ms. Gandhi had imbibed the Hindu culture and showed humanitarian concern by her gesture. ``She was even ready to visit the hospital but sent good wishes for the speedy recovery of Mr. Kanshi Ram.'' None of the BJP leaders had the ``courtesy'' of inquiring about the well-being of Mr. Kanshi Ram.
``Probably, the BJP can learn a lesson or two from Sonia Gandhi on Hindu culture. As I am being harassed on account of the Taj corridor case and do not find sufficient time to look after our ailing party president, I will hold the BJP responsible if something happens to Kanshi Ram,'' Ms. Mayawati said.
