BSP To Fight Alone In UP & Uttarakhand Polls, Says Mayawati

Lucknow: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will fight solo in the Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand state Assembly polls scheduled for early next year, party chief Mayawati tweeted on Sunday morning. Mayawati’s reaction came amid media reports that BSP was planning to tie up with Asaduddin Owaisi-led AIMIM.


According to Mayawati, her party has only declared a political alliance with Punjab’s Shiromani Akali Dal for the next year’s Punjab polls. The parties have also finalised the seat-sharing formula in the 117-member assembly. As per the agreement, SAD will contest in 97 seats and the BSP in 20.

“This news is being broadcast in a media news channel since yesterday that the AIMIM and BSP will fight the upcoming assembly elections in UP together. This news is completely false, misleading and baseless. There is not even an iota of truth in this and the BSP vehemently denies it.

“In this regard, it is again clarified that except Punjab, the BSP will not contest the UP and Uttarakhand state polls early next year in alliance with any party; meaning it will go it alone,” tweeted Mayawati.
