Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Tuesday expelled party vice-chairperson and national coordinator Jai Prakash Singh after he said that Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s foreign blood would not allow him to become the prime ministerial candidate for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
According to reports, Mayawati has stated that she came to know that Jai Prakash Singh has violated party principles and attacked another political leader on personal issues. She added that she has decided to remove Singh from the party with immediate effect.

The harsh move came following Jai Prakash’s remark which he stated a day before. The BSP coordinator stated that Rahul resembles his mother more than his father and hence cannot be a PM candidate because his mother is a foreigner. He had also added that Mayawati is the ‘dabang’ leader who can halt the winning spree of Modi-Shah duo.
Mayawati further warned the party leaders to refrain themselves from giving statements on an alliance with any party for the upcoming Lok Sabha and state assembly polls.
“In Uttar Pradesh and in other states as well, until an alliance with a party is announced, members of the Bahujan Samaj Party should refrain from speaking anything about alliance at any level. They should leave it to the High Command,” she added.
