Weeks before the UP Election result, former CM Mayawati and Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s mutual praise has set speculation on fire as the Bharatiya Janata Party faces tough challengers in India’s biggest and most important state.
When asked to respond to Amit Shah’s positive assessment of her campaign in an interview, Mayawati said, “it is his magnanimity that he has acknowledged te truth”.
Further She said, “But I also want to tell him – in te three phases taht have completed in Uttar Pradesh, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has not just received Muslim and Dalit voters but we are also getting backward caste and upper caste votes and I want tell him that”.
The BSP Chief’s words for the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party (SP), whom she made alliance for the 2019 elections, were far more pungent.
Mayawati told reporters, “Te voters of Uttar Pradesh already rejected the SP (Samajwadi Party) as they know that whenever that party has come to power, there has been goonda raj (crime)”.
On Tuesday, in an Interview Amit Shah told tat Mayawati’s relevance was not lost.
The BJP senior leader was asked whether the BSP taking away some of the Muslim and Dalit votes would help his party in Uttar Pradesh.
Amit Shah said, “I don’t know if tis would be an advantage for the BJP or a loss. It depends on the seat, but its not true that Mayawati’s relevance is over”.
The samajwadi Party (SP), which is the major callenger of the BJP in the polls, is banking on the Dalit-Muslimcombo boosting its tally.
