Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Wednesday announced that her party will contest assembly elections in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh (MP) either on its own or in alliance with regional parties but not with the Congress.
The BSP chief said there was no truth to rumors of the her party trying to ruin plans of a grand alliance.
“The truth is that the Congress, through this ‘Mahagathbandhan’, wants to destroy BSP. This means that the Congress, despite support from the Dalits and backward sections of the society, has a casteist and communal mindset like BJP. It has not worked for development for these sections of the society,” Mayawati said at a press conference.
The BSP chief said, in Chhattisgarh and Karnataka her party tied up with regional parties to contest the upcoming elections.
Mayawati had earlier announced that the BSP will tie up with Ajit Jogi’s party for the Chhattisgarh Assembly polls.
