“We will agree to alliance anywhere & in any election only when we get a respectable share of seats, otherwise BSP will contest alone,” she said.

“BJP Governments in states and in the Centre are trying to hide their failures by diversionary tactics. They have not fulfilled their election promises. They are trying to use Atal ji's death for political gains,” said Mayawati.
