Monday,24 Jun 2019
NEW DELHI: Mayawati today formally called an end to the alliance with Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party, tweeting that going forward, her party will contest all elections, big and small, on its own. In a series of tweets, the Bahujan Samaj Party also aired her grouse against Akhilesh Yadav, with whom she promised to keep cordial relations barely three weeks ago. A string of assembly seats will be up for by-election later this year, reports NDTV.
"It is known that all our old grievances with the SP were kept aside, along with the anti-Dalit and ant-BSP decisions taken by the SP government between 2012-17, works carried out that was against reservation in promotion and deteriorating law and order situation - were all kept aside and an alliance was formed in public interest which was honoured completely," one of her tweets read.
