Hitting out at both the UPA and the NDA, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Saturday accused Samajwadi Party of having a “secret alliance” with the BJP in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
“There was no SP candidate against BJP President Rajnath Singh in Ghaziabad which proves the secret alliance between the SP and BJP,” Mayawati said addressing an election rally in Amroha.
The BSP chief was campaigning for her party candidate Maulana Moudood Madni in Amroha Lok Sabha seat where the polling is scheduled for the final phase on May 13.
In Ghaziabad constituency, the BJP President is facing close fight with Congress’s Surendra Prakash Goel, the sitting MP. The BSP has fielded Amar Pal Sharma from the seat which went to polls in the fourth phase on May 7.
Mayawati said both the Congress and the BJP are “totally dependent on capitalists” and therefore, they always “think about the welfare of the upper class, while BSP is surviving on the support of common men”.
Talking about the trifurcation of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati said she had already sent many proposals to the centre for the formation of Poorvanchal, Bundelkhand and Western UP states.
