Mumbai: On Saturday, Bahujan Samaj Party(BSP) President Mayawati took a swipe at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath saying both ‘Ali and Bajrangbali’ are with her party.
CM Adityanath had earlier said that if the alliance of SP-BSP, Congress has faith in ‘Ali’ then BJP has faith in ‘Bajrangbali’.
Mayawati was addressing a joined rally of SP BSP RLD when she said we want Ali and Bajrangbali also as he was associated with Dalit community.
Earlier a week back on 7th April in a public rally in Deoband she said, “Congress is not capable to defeat BJP. Only the alliance party can do that. Congress doesn’t want the alliance of BSP SP RLD to win only for Alliance, not for Congress.”
The Election Commission of India(ECI) had sent notice to BSP president for her comments in Deoband as it was against the model code of conduct.
Aditynath on April 9 said, “Knew Bajrangbali followers will never forgive them and that is the reason why they cry Ali-Ali on stage as they want to send the green virus to the country.”
The SP BSP RLD is contesting with Alliance for the coming Lok Sabha elections. RLD is fielded for 3 seats, BSP on 38 and SP on 37 seats. Two seats are left of Amethi and Raebareli for Congress.
On 11 April, 8 Constituencies went for voting. For the second phase on April 18, 8 seat election will take place.
Results will be declared on May 23.
Uttar Pradesh ranks highest in terms of Lok Sabha seats i.e 80 and plays a key role for deciding the government.
