India, (12/3/2019): The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) made it clear today that it would not have any electoral tie up with the Congress in any states for the polls beginning on 11 April.

Referring to her party’s pre poll alliance with the Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh, she said “it was based on mutual respect and honest intentions adding that the SP BSP alliance is perfect enough to defeat the BJP, especially in Uttar Pradesh”.
Addressing party leaders from various states in Lucknow, Mayawati said while several parties were eager for an alliance with the BSP, her party would not do anything for mere electoral gains as it could harm the “BSP movement”.
While the BJP hopes to make a come back in the power for the second time, the opposition is hopeful of unseating the government by raising its questions on its performance on a host of issues, including growth, employment, corruption and social harmony.
On the other hand BJP believes that its Lok Sabha poll campaign is back on track after the 10% reservation for general category poor and money transfer to the farmers.
