UP Elections 2022:
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) President Mayawati on Tuesday accused the ruling party BJP and the main opposition SP in Uttar Pradesh of forming an alliance, saying that the politics of these two parties have always been complementary to each other and that BJP-SP are two sides of the same coin.
Mayawati, in a press conference in Lucknow, alleged that the BJP, especially in Uttar Pradesh, was involved in an internal collision with the SP to cover up the blatant failures of their government and several other newly fabricated communal and sectarian attacks like Jinnah and the Ayodhya police firing, making every effort to raise religious issues. Mayawati said that the BJP is doing this so that the assembly elections become focused on the Hindu-Muslim issue.
The former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh said that although the public is now very aware of SP and BJP. Mayawati said that BSP also has full hope that now the people of the state are not going to fall prey to any such conspiracy.
She said that as the assembly elections are approaching, a tremendous drama of BJP and other anti-BSP parties has started to woo and mislead the people of the state in every way.
He said that in the last one-and-a-half months, the BJP government at the Center and in Uttar Pradesh has made innumerable announcements, laying foundations and inaugurating half-finished works, that clearly shows the defeat of BJP in the assembly elections.
Mayawati said that except for BSP, all the opposition parties have also made announcements and promises to woo the people of the state long before the announcement of elections. Mayawati said, “Like the SP, the Congress has also made various inducements and election promises to the people of the state. Had Congress fulfilled even 50 percent of its election promises during its long reign in Uttar Pradesh, today this party would not have been out of power at the Center and in most states of the country including Uttar Pradesh.”
The BSP president said that SP is claiming to win 400 seats and BJP 300 seats in the upcoming assembly elections, which is childish and airy. BSP chief said that from this point of view, the Election Commission should increase the number of assembly seats to about 1000 only.
