Notably, Narendra Modi on Saturday accused Congress and Samajwadi Party of playing games with BSP chief Mayawati’s confidence. “Congress leaders are happily sharing stage with Samajwadi Party in rallies. These people have betrayed “Behenji’ (Mayawati) so cunningly that she cannot even see through the game. A party that was staking claim to the Prime Minister’s post before polling began, is now admitting to being a vote cutter,” PM Modi said addressing an election rally in Pratapgarh. Further, PM Modi said that the “SP-BSP alliance had five evils – corruption, instability, communalism, dynasty and misrule”.

Mayawati also came out in support of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi as she appealed people to vote for the Congress in Amethi and Rae Bareli. “Mujhe poori ummeed hai ke hamare gathbandhan ka ek ek vote har halat mein dono Congress neta ko milne wala hai (I have full confidence that each and every vote of the gathbandhan will go to the two Congress leaders),” she said while addressing a press conference in Lucknow.
The BSP Supremo asserted that there were no chances of her party coming in alliance with the Congress. “The whole country knows that we have not, nor we will have any sort of alliance with the Congress,” she said.
Mayawati said that the SP-BSP alliance left the seats for the Congress to weaken the BJP and the RSS, and to ensure that Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra could focus on the nation and not get too involved in the campaigning for Amethi and Rae Bareli.
Notably, Amethi and Rae Bareli, the stronghold of the Congress, will go to polls on May 6.
