Rajiya Sabha Election 2018: BJP tries to buy MLAs, says Mayawati

Rajya Sabha elections in UP

Mayawati accused the BJP of creating an atmosphere of terror.

Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister, Keshav Prasad Murya, on Friday mocked the SP-BSP alliance and advised Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati to introspect the reason behind her loss in the Rajya Sabha polls.

In an apparent reference to Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati, Maurya said, "The one who could not be loyal to his father and uncle, can never be loyal to his bua (aunt)".

Addressing the Press Conference Mayawati said that BJP indulged in unconstitutional and undemocratic methods to defeat the BSP candidate. The SP returned the favour by polling its surplus votes in favour of the BSP, but the BJP's Anil Agarwal managed to go through to the Upper House.

Actress Jaya Bachchan won the single seat for SP. Senior leaders including Akhilesh Yadav and others were scheduled to attend the programme.

After it wrested the two seats with the BSP's backing, the SP had reciprocated by promising to ensure the victory of BSP candidate Bhimrao Ambedkar.

"This immoral victory can not make up for their defeat in Gorakhpur and Phulpur".

Similar views were also expressed by BSP national general secretary Satish Misra who said that they got the SP votes and it was only "misuse" of power by the BJP which led to the defeat of his partys candidate.

Speaking about the Rajya Sabha elections strategy, she said: "A plan had been made that we come together so that the BJP candidate couldn't win the election".

"Attacking the BJP she said, 'They still want to see Dalits and backwards as deprived and are not able to digest the SP and BSP's new understanding and have so termed it as selfish, unholy, opportunistic alliance or the friendship of snake and moles", and asked the ruling party to shun such mindset or else the people will send them to "lifelong exile".
