The Bahujan Samaj Party and the Samajwadi party headed by President Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav respectively, announced the alliance electing 38 seats each out of 80, in the Lok Sabha polls this year. It is BSP chief Mayawati, a prime ministerial candidate for the elections heading, according to Yadav. “You know who is my choice. Uttar Pradesh has given Prime Ministers in the past and trends are to be repeated again. Will back Mayawati for PM candidate when needed,” he said.
“To defeat the arrogance of BJP, it was necessary for BSP and SP to come together. BJP can go to any extent to create differences in our workers, we must be united and counter any such tactic”, added Yadav with a hope of the next PM belonging to Uttar Pradesh.
In response, Finance Minister Arun Jaitely and UP CM Yogi Adityanath commented on the alliance and the motives behind saying that the alliance is outcome of the Modi’s springing sway and that no one can beat the leadership influences showered by the Modi government. “There is no history of these alliances. I simply call it as a coliation of rivals. The people and aligned parties opposing each other have come together having no similarity in the thoughts, votes and the ideologies of the parties.”, Jaitley said.
“How many more times are we going to witness the same. The life span of these alliances is not more than few months. The government formed by these allies is usually so weak that single thread reverses it’s warrant, the whole government collapses. The mathematical and statistical analysis will hardly affect the reigns once the masses accept Modi as their leader. We have 35 partners in NDA now, popping up from 24 earlier. “, he added at the BJP National Convention in the national capital.
Launching a scathing attack on Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav, who joined hands forming alliance today in Lucknow, Yogi said, “Those who did not see each other in the eye and indulged in caste-based politics till yesterday, now want to become allies because PM Narendra Modi has uprooted corruption and diseases from the country.”
“I want to ask Congress, SP and BSP, when Samajwadi Party was in power four times and BSP was in power three times, why were the people of Uttar Pradesh not given toilets?”, he pondered further.
