The Bahujan Samaj Party said on Saturday that it decided to go alone in the Lok Sabha elections to improve its poll percentage, and would not support any political party even after the polls.

"Keeping in view the past experience, the BSP has decided to contest elections alone," party president Mayawati told a poll rally to garner support for her candidates from Ropar, Patiala and Ludhiana.

Justifying her statement, she said when BSP contested elections in alliance with the Congress the percentage of poll to her party came down while congress had gained the poll percentage.

She alleged that the Congress party in its 48 years regime had done nothing for the Dalits. She declared Congress anti Baba Sahib Bhim Rao Ambedkar and alleged it was against his presence in Parliament.

She alleged when Congress came to know in 1952 in the first Parliament elections that Baba Sahib was contesting election from Mumbai the Congress party fielded Kajerkar a private secretary of Baba sahib and defeated Baba Sahib.

Claiming in her tenure she allotted surpluse land to more than seven lakh people, she said unlike BJP's feel good factor, he party's was a real one.

She said the BJP had misused CBI in Taj Corridor case and alleged that at the time of assembly elections in the four states, BJP managed to register an FIR against her.
