Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Friday pointed out that she was willing to be a part of larger anti-BJP front.
She also said that her brother Anand Kumar would be the vice president of the party.
As national vice-president he will be empowered to dispose of the party documents and represent the party in the meetings held by Election Commission,” she said while addressing the cadre during the Ambedkar birth anniversary function at Lucknow’s Ambedkar Memorial.
During the UP polls, Mayawati had consistently rejected suggestions of be of a larger anti-BJP front similar to the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ or Grand alliance in Bihar.
Congress and JD (U) leaders had several rounds of meeting with Mayawati to discuss the possibility of a grand alliance.
But, the BSP chief had rejected the proposal and contested the election on its own strength.
The party faced a humiliating defeat in the Assembly polls. Her announcement could pave the chance for a larger anti-BJP front in the 2019 Parliamentary elections.
