The battle for 2019 has begun in right earnest . And in the important battle- ground of Uttar Pradesh the mahagathbandhan’s plans to take on the formidable BJP seems to have hit troubled waters. If one goes by the recent statement made by Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati.
Mayawati has reiterated that she will agree to an alliance with other parties for any election only if her party was given a “respectable share of seats”, reported ANI.
“We will agree to alliance anywhere [and] in any election only when we get a respectable share of seats, otherwise BSP will contest alone,” she said in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow. States like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan will go to polls later this year.
Earlier in in July, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said her party will contest the upcoming Assembly elections with a coalition partner only if it gets a “respectable number of seats”.
