SP faked rift; minorities must vote for BSP to check BJP: Mayawati

Once again asking the minorities to vote for her party, Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati has said that this is the only way to check the Bharatiya Janata Party in the upcoming state elections.

Targeting the Samajwadi Party, she said Mulayam Singh Yadav made his brother Shivpal a scapegoat to divert attention from son Akhilesh’s ‘failures’.

She also said that the rift in SP was faked by Mulayam and Akhilesh.

Taking a dig at the hiccups in SP-Congress alliance, she said both the parties are like sinking boats.

“The Congress and S P are sinking boats. It is difficult for the SP to return to power,” she said in Lucknow.

The BSP supremo said the news of alliance has exposed selfish motive of the Congress.

Mayawati reiterated that the people of UP would not vote for the SP and that she will ensure that victory is marked by the BSP in the elections.

Taking a jibe at the two factions of the Samajwadi Party, Mayawati said the groups will lead to the defeat of each other.

Meanwhile, Mulayam loyalist SP leader Ambika Chaudhary joined the BSP in Mayawati’s presence on Saturday.
