BSP rules out Mahagathbandhan-like alliance in Uttar Pradesh


Mayawati’s Bahujan Samajwadi has ruled out the possibility of building a Bihar’s Mahagathbandhan-like alliance in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the assembly elections scheduled for 2017.

BSP leader, Swami Prasad Maurya said, “Backgrounds of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh are different. People in UP are crying because of gunda raj of Samajwadi party. People are fed up with Akhilesh’s gunda raj and BJP’s danga raj (communal regime). Both SP and BJP must be taught lesson. BSP is already established as a credible alternative. And we will work to teach them a lesson.”

Akhilesh, who was in Sant Kabir Nagar in eastern UP, told reporters, “Your question is important. I want to thank Bihari people, but I also want to thank UP people because panchayat elections results came earlier. And in Panchayat elections they defeated communal forces. So, the possibilities of such an alliance can’t be ruled out. There are chances that Samajwadi Party could be a part of a big alliance in the forthcoming legislative assembly election.”
