A BSP statement had said that the party will never compromise with the self-respect of the Dalits, tribals, backward, Muslims, other minorities and the upper castes’ poor, irrespective of the “malice and torture” of the governments run by the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Accusing the Congress of finishing her party, Mayawati had on October 3 ruled out an alliance with the Congress in the coming Assembly elections in Rajasthan as well as in Madhya Pradesh, a decision that could also impact the opposition’s plan for a grand alliance against the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
