'BSP to go it alone in J&K, Jharkhand polls'

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Wednesday said her party will go alone in the Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand.

“BSP would contest the coming Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand alone like it did in Haryana and Maharashtra recently,” she told reporters in Lucknow.

When asked about her party’s dismal performance in Haryana and Maharashtra Assembly elections, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said parties other than BSP also could not get enough success as the people “fell prey to the appeals” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who sought more time from them to judge the performance of his government.

Ms. Mayawati hit out at the BJP-led Government saying that the party is garnering votes in the assembly elections on the pretext of seeking more time to prove themselves, but their reality will soon come to fore.

She alleged that despite the promise to launch Clean Ganga campaign on war footing nothing has been done so far and to divert people’s attention from it a “drama” is being enacted with the Prime Minister visiting Varanasi on November 7.

The BSP supremo also attacked the BJP-led Government on bringing back black money stashed abroad and controlling inflation.
