Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on November 9, 2021, announced that her party will not forge an alliance with any party in the assembly elections and will contest the elections on its own.
The BSP supremo said, “BSP will not have any ‘poll agreement’ with any party. We will fight the elections on our own. We are making a pact to bring people from all sections of society together. This alliance is permanent. We don’t have the intention of forging an alliance with any party.”
She also launched a scathing attack on the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as well as the Congress party.
“As the elections are approaching, BJP and other rival parties have started a drama to woo the people of the state. The truth is that the announcement of projects of the BJP government at the Center and the state and the inauguration of unfinished works in the last 1-2 months will continue till the elections,” the BSP supremo said.
Taking a jibe at the Congress, Mayawati said, “People of the state are not going to easily believe many election promises made by the Congress party like the SP. Had the Congress fulfilled even 50 per cent of its election promises, it would not have been out of power at the Centre, UP and most of the states in the country.”
It’s notable that Mayawati on November 8, 2021, targeted the Samajwadi Party (SP) and accused it of insulting saints and great men who were born in Dalit and Backward families. (Press Release)
