Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, visiting the national capital for two days from Friday, is not scheduled to meet United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chairperson and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
According to Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) sources, the party chief is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday but there was no mention of any meeting with any other political leader in her itinerary.
"If an unscheduled and undisclosed meeting has been planned between the two leaders, it is not known to us," a BSP source said.
Her agenda for the first day includes a press conference and addressing party workers at the BSP office. She will attend a dinner with her party colleagues on Friday night.
Meanwhile, the BSP sources refused to attach any significance to party leader and state minister SC Mishra's meeting with Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat in the capital last week.
"He also met (former Uttar Pradesh chief minister) Narain Dutt Tiwari and (Congress treasurer) Moti Lal Vora," said the BSP source.
