New Delhi, Nov 16 (IANS) Asserting that her alliance with Ajit Jogi’s party will get a majority in Chhattisgarh, Bahujan Samaj Party Chief Mayawati on Friday said she will prefer sitting in the opposition to supporting the Congress or BJP in an adverse situation.

“I have full confidence that we will get absolute majority and so there are no chances to think about any sort of support to or from anyone,” she told a channel in an interview.

“Even if we do not get majority, we will prefer sitting in the opposition to forming an alliance with the Congress or the BJP as both the parties are anti-poor, anti-farmer, anti-Dalit and anti-weaker sections,” she said.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s party is contesting the ongoing Chhattisgarh election in alliance with Ajit Jogi, a Congress rebel and the state’s first chief minister.

She said the question of alliance does not arise as the second phase of the polling is yet to take place, the BSP supremo told NDTV.

Jogi on Thursday had said he will not rule out anything, even a tie-up with the ruling BJP, despite his intense rivalry with Chief Minister Raman Singh.
