The deep frustration in the BSP cadre is the result of the gnawing feeling of utter irrelevance of the party in the current political scenario, as well as that of party supremo Mayawati, who looks fatigued and spent out.
In a press statement, Mayawati said she had entered into an alliance with the SP in 2019, setting aside the acrimony of the June 2, 1995 incident.
BSP president Mayawati has asked senior party leaders to launch a “Brahmin Jodo” campaign from ‘Navratri’ this month.
She also condemned as “shameful” the ill-treatment meted out to the media and the lathi-charge on the opposition leaders who supported the 19-year-old victim’s family in the past couple of days.
She further wrote that proper sanitation and maintenance is not being done in most of the government Covid centres set up in UP for prevention of corona disease.
The BJP MLA is known for making controversial statements. Earlier, he had said that Muslims have multiple wives and their children have “animalistic” tendencies.
Not just UP, the BSP candidates could also not open their accounts in Maharashtra and Haryana, where party supremo Mayawati herself campaigned.
Irked with corruption in ticket allocation, party workers made Ramji Gautam sit on a donkey and parade outside party office in Jaipur.
Mayawati said the move will not bring any benefits for OBC groups and Yogi Adityanath had deceived them.
Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav, on the hand, did not comment on Mayawati’s statement.
Addressing a meeting of party leaders, Mayawati announced that the BSP would contest the by-elections to 11 Assembly elections in the state on its own.
