    Published on June 4, 2019

    The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will go alone in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly by-polls. Talking to reporters in New Delhi, party Chief Mayawati said, it is not a permanent break in alliance with Samajwadi Party and if she feels in future that Akhilesh Yadav succeeds in his political work, the two parties will again work together.

    The BSP Chief had yesterday asked party workers not to depend on alliance to win votes but to improve the party’s organisation.

    Meanwhile Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav also said, his party will go solo in by-elections to 11 Assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh if its alliance with the BSP ends.

    He was talking to media persons at Ghazipur in Uttar Prdesh today. Yadav said, they will field SP candidates on all 11 seats after consulting party leaders soon.

    His remarks came following the announcement BSP Chief Mayawati that her party will fight the upcoming bypolls alone, but can work with the SP in future if Yadav is able to fulfill his duties.

    Skill Development Minister and UP BJP President Mahendra Nath Pandey today said, the alliance between SP and BSP for Lok Sabha elections was an opportunistic alliance. Reacting to BSP’s decision to go alone in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly by-polls, Mr Pandey said in New Delhi that what has now happened between the two parties was predestined.
