Assembly polls 2018: Mayawati slams Congress; BSP to go solo in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh polls
The Bahujan Samaj Party chief, Mayawati has announced that 'under no circumstances' her party will ally with Congress for the upcoming elections in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Mayawati, a powerhouse for Dalits said BSP will go solo in both state assembly polls.
Mayawati alleged, the grand old party, is still clinging on to its arrogance and does not want to "mend its ways". "The Congress party's 'arrogance' is now speaking and they feel that they can take on the BJP on their own. The truth is that the people are unwilling to forgive the Congress for their corrupt government," she said.
Slamming Congress once again, at a press conference on Wednesday, the Bahujan Samaj Party chief said, "In Rajasthan and MP too, we will either ally with regional parties or fight alone, not with Congress".
Mayawati attacked Congress over its leaders like Digvijay Singh not interested in alliance BSP. “Congress leaders like Digvijaya Singh do not wish for a Congress- BSP alliance. They are afraid of agencies like ED, CBI,” said Mayawati.
