Mayawati may align with BJP again: SP

Special Correspondent

LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh on Saturday described Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati as an old ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

While the Left parties, the Congress and SP chief Mulayam Singh never aligned with the BJP, Ms. Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party had thrice entered into a marriage of convenience with the saffron party. And the possibility her aligning with the BJP again, after the Lok Sabha polls could not be ruled out, Mr. Amar Singh said at an SP youth wing convention here.

Dismissive of Ms. Mayawati’s ambition to become the next Prime Minister, Mr. Amar Singh said if it happened, then statues would be built in the entire country.

He assailed the BSP president for fielding “criminals” in the elections.

Defending the SP’s understanding with the former BJP leader, Kalyan Singh, Mr. Amar Singh said the former Chief Minister would play a key role in the decimation of the saffron party in the State.

Without naming rebel SP legislator Mohammad Azam Khan, he said challenging the party president’s decision in public amounted to deceit.

The Samajwadi Chhatra Sabha, Mulayam Youth Brigade, Yuvjan Sabha and the Lohia Vahini were represented at the convention.
