Akhilesh Yadav Accuses BJP Of Trying To Create Discord Between SP, BSP

Akhilesh Yadav Accuses BJP Of Trying To Create Discord Between SP, BSP

In the wake of losing, Mayawati announced of not standing for any of the upcoming by-polls in Uttar Pradesh. All gains made from winning Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha bypolls had been nullified with BSP's loss in Rajya Sabha elections to Yogi Adityanath's BJP. With bypolls likely to be held in Kairana Lok Sabha and Noorpur assembly seat shortly, terming this as a setback for former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav's ambitious plans would be an understatement.

The TMC supremo even urged all parties to support the political outfits which are dominant in respective states, a strategy Banerjee feels could uninstall the Modi government. "Second finishes plus wins is generally the base rule in such seat-sharing arrangements", an SP functionary told ET on condition of anonymity. She went to the extent of advising Akhilesh that she would have given preference to the SP candidate rather than her own if she were running the campaign strategy.

After reaffirming her party's alliance with arch-rival Samajwadi Party, while BSP chief Mayawati has got into the poll mode for 2019 Lok Sabha battle, she may spring another surprise by jumping into the fray herself from her old constituency Ambedkarnagar.

In a statement here on Wednesday, Ms Mayawati said similar demonstration of firearms in Kasganj during a Tringa Yatra, which was taken by without permission by the saffron brigade turned into a communal violence on January 26 last.

It was against this backdrop that she stressed the necessity for an alliance or an understanding and asked party leaders to foil the BJP's efforts to drive a wedge in the new found equation with the SP, a party insider said after the meeting.

She said BJP is "scared" as all opposition leaders are working together.

The BSP chief told senior party leaders in a closed door meeting that they must work wholeheartedly to defeat the BJP in the parliamentary elections, barely a year away. "If you fail (to break our unity), you will not be able to grab power in future", he said pointing at Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma and other ruling party members.
