Mayawati, whose recent strategic shift to support regional rival Samajwadi Party to oust BJP bore positive results in Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabha bypolls, also remarked upon the possibility of contesting future legislative assembly elections in alliances.

 

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Saturday ruled out any possibility of a change in party leadership any time soon. “No one should dream to become BSP president for next 20-22 years. I will continue to lead the party.”
 
The BSP leader further asked her party cadre not to make any effort to vie for party leadership, as well as attempt to project himself/herself as former Uttar Pradesh chief minister’s heir. “Also, no one should dream to become my heir,” Mayawati said while presiding over a party meeting in Lucknow.
 
The BSP leader is reported to be suffering from a knee injury for the last six months. The leader sustained injury while exiting a hotel in Bhopal last year.

Mayawati, whose recent strategic shift to support regional rival Samajwadi Party to oust BJP bore positive results in Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabha bypolls, also remarked upon the possibility of contesting future legislative assembly elections in alliances. The BSP supremo clarified that the party will venture into an alliance if it gets “respectable” seat share. “Otherwise, BSP will prefer to contest all elections alone,” she said.

“Although talks are underway for poll alliances in Uttar Pradesh and other states, you have to remain prepared for facing any situation in your respective states at all levels,” she was quoted as saying by news agency PTI while presiding over a meeting of national-level office bearers.
 

 

BSP supremo slams Modi govt for ‘historic failure’
 
Earlier in the day, Mayawati condemned  Modi government for its ‘historic failure’ in dealing with issues that concern common people. “The four years of Narendra Modi government prove that it has historically failed on the issues of inflation, poverty, unemployment, welfare work and other issues which affect the life of the people in the country,” Mayawati said.
 
“The BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself term all their work as historic and that is why fuel prices are at a historic high during his government,” she added.
