BSP Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Wednesday called a meeting of all party office bearers in the state capital on May 18 to formulate a strategy for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
The meeting will also discuss issues like alleged misuse of official machinery and religion by the ruling party for political interests.
”Misuse of government machinery by the ruling party in UP to reduce the effect of anti-people policies, wrong activities and shortcomings and their malicious, oppressive behaviour and use of religion for political interests is very serious and worrying. This is damaging for democracy,” Mayawati said in a tweet in Hindi.
1. यूपी में सत्ताधारी पार्टी द्वारा जनविरोधी नीतियों, गलत कार्यकलापों आदि कमियों का चुनाव पर प्रभाव कम करने के लिए सरकारी मशीनरी का दुरुपयोग, इनका द्वेषपूर्ण, दमनकारी व्यवहार एवं धर्म का राजनीतिक स्वार्थ के लिए इस्तेमाल अति-गंभीर व अति-चिन्ताजनक, जो लोकतंत्र के लिए घातक।

The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said a special meeting of all big and small office bearers, divisional and district presidents of Uttar Pradesh will be held on Thursday here to chalk out a concrete strategy to fight these fierce anti-people challenges and prepare for LoK Sabha polls. After the results of the urban local body polls last week, Mayawati had accused the ruling BJP of misusing government machinery, and said her party will not sit silently over it.
The BSP had fielded mayoral candidates on all the 17 seats in the state but none could register a win.
