BSP to go solo in 2022 UP polls, says Mayawati

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati has announced that her party will contest the 2022 Assembly elections alone and will not enter into an alliance with any party.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Mayawati said that her party would also contest the Panchayat elections on its own.

Mayawati mounted a scathing attack on the BJP governments at the Centre and state and said that the BSP was supporting farmers’ agitation and the Centre should repeal the farm laws.

She alleged that the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh was poor and people were being victimised on caste grounds.

Paying glowing tributes to her mentor, late Kanshi Ram, on his birth anniversary, the BSP president said that it was only by following his ideology that a change could be brought in the weaker sections.

She said that late Kanshi Ram had inspired her to continue to struggle against oppression of the poor.–IANS
