Mayawati clears her intentions, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Monday announced to go solo in all elections, completely breaking ties with the Samajwadi Party.
In a tweet Mayawati said,”The Samajwadi Party’s behaviour after Lok Sabha polls forced us to think if it would be possible to defeat BJP by continuing the alliance. We came to a conclusion that it was not possible. Therefore, in the interest of the party and the movement, BSP will now fight all the small and big elections all alone”.
The alliance failed in the recent lok sabha elections, with SP securing only 5 seats and BSP securing 10 seats. Altough the alliance did help BSP as it didn’t win a single seat in the 2014 selections. But now seeing the situation BSP chief Mayawati has decided to ditch Akhilesh Yadav’s SP.
Mayawati after two-hour-long national convention of the BSP on Sunday, accused Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav to frame her in Taj corridor case. She also attacked former ally Akhilesh of working against non-Yadav and backward communities, resulting in the alliance’s poor performance in Lok Sabha poll.
