Maya rules out alliance in LS polls

Lucknow, Nob 9, 2013 DHNS: 1:32 IST
Ignoring the Congress’ subtle attempts to woo her, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Saturday ruled out any alliance either before or after Lok Sabha elections in 2014, and expressed confidence that her party would win the maximum number of seats in Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking to reporters here, Mayawati also hit back at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his recent remarks that she was not allowing any other dalit leader to grow in her party, She said that no one had stopped Rahul Gandhi from “nurturing dalit leaders.”

She also slammed the media for trying to tarnish her image by raking up the issue of allotment of bungalows in Delhi, and reprieve to her brother by the Income Tax department.

“There is no question of any kind of alliance with any party in the next general election. We will fight on our own,” Mayawati said exuding confidence that the BSP would also do well in the Assembly elections in the four states.

“We have extended support to the United Progressive Alliance regime only to keep the communal forces at bay,” she added. Mayawati also targeted BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and said that the crowds in his rallies comprised ticket seekers. “There are differences among L K Advani, Rajnath Singh and Modi.

The BSP will stand to gain from these differences”, she said but did not elaborate.
The BSP supremo reiterated her demand for President’s rule in Uttar Pradesh saying that “jungle raj” prevailed in the state.

“No development can take place unless peace prevails here. The Samajwadi Party regime has failed to ensure safety of the people,” she alleged. Mayawati also cautioned the people against “communal forces” and said that they could try to foment trouble to gain political mileage in the elections.
