The BSP on Monday claimed that it had support of the Left parties as well as that of all non-UPA, non-NDA parties, which would ensure Mayawati becomes the next prime minister.

"After the general elections, the BSP led government will rule and Mayawati will become Prime Minister. All non-UPA and non-BJP parties will extend support to her to become Prime Minister," BSP national general secretary Suresh Mane told reporters in Dharmapuri.

Mane pointed out that CPI (M) leader Prakash Karat had also assured his party's support to Mayawati.

Targeting the Congress and BJP, he said that there was no difference between their economic policies and the two national parties simply implemented each others programmes when they came to power.

Mane also alleged that the DMK government in Tamil Nadu was against Dalits as no department was allotted 25 per cent of the budgetary provision for welfare of Dalits, as per Planning Commission recommendations.
