At a rally in Azamgarh, BSP chief Mayawati said that the first five phases of the elections had shown that the Mahagathbandhan’s prospects were improving. “Our (electoral) prospects are improving…the prospects of the opposition alliance will further improve in the remaining two phases of Lok Sabha polls,” she said.
Claiming that the BJP leaders had lost their sleep since the SP-BSP-RLD alliance came into being, Mayawati asked the voters to ensure a historic win for Akhilesh Yadav who is the joint opposition candidate from the Azamgarh seat.
About to the Prime Minister’s frequent references to the alliance as “mahamilawati”, Mayawati said, “We are not ‘mahamilawati’, it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is ‘mahamilawati’.”
While she was at it Mayawati attacked the Congress as well and said, “Both have the same nature and character,” adding that PM Modi was trying to create a rift in the alliance and that the voters should not fall prey to his designs.
Yadav seconded Mayawati in that the mahagathbandhan had received support in the state. “From the support we’ve got, we know that our mahagathbandhan is going to win the maximum seats in the state,” he said.
“There has been a rain of votes for the mahagathbandhan in the last five phases of polling,” he said.
Speaking last, RLD’s Ajit Singh said the BJP and PM Modi had seen the writing on the wall that his days in power were over.
