BSP rebukes being in touch with UPA and NDA

Terming as "mischievous" and "unfounded" the reports that UPA and NDA were trying to strike a deal with it for forming government at the Centre, the BSP on Friday said it will not support either of the two alliances.

"There are reports in some newspapers and channels that the BSP is in touch with the NDA and the UPA. Such reports are baseless and notorious," the party said in an official release here.

The BSP alleged that the reports are being spread by the opposition parties with the sole objective to create confusion among the people. "It is an effort to defame the party," the release added.

Some media reports have suggested that both the alliances have been trying to woo BSP chief Mayawati in order to get her support for the formation of government at the Centre.

The reports said that two senior BSP leaders Satish Chandra Misra and Naseemuddin Siddiqui were in New Delhi yesterday to keep an eye on the developments there.

The BSP chief, who expects her party to emerge as a major player in Uttar Pradesh, is eying the prime minister's post as part of the Third Front.
