Mayawati ready for anti-BJP front

Apparently desperate to revive her party, which suffered a severe drubbing in the recent Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, BSP supremo Mayawati on Friday dropped hints that she might not be averse to be a part of the proposed ‘anti-BJP’ front to take on the saffron party.

Speaking at a function on the occasion of 126th birth anniversary of dalit ideologue B R Ambedkar here, Mayawati reiterated her allegation that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) were tampered with by the BJP in the UP polls.

Her party would continue to raise voice against the tampering. “BJP is harassing me as it was perturbed by our party's protest against EVM tampering...we will continue our protest...we are open to joining hands with other opposition parties on this issue,” she said.

“I am ready to join hands with others to fight the BJP and save democracy,” she remarked.

Though Mayawati did not elaborate on her remarks, BSP leaders, who were present there, said that she might not be averse to be a part of the proposed ‘anti-BJP’ front.

Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Akhilesh Yadav has advocated formation of a ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) in UP and in other parts of the country to take on the BJP.

Mayawati’s remarks assume significance amid renewed efforts by some Opposition parties like JD(U) and NCP to form a grand alliance against BJP.
