Lucknow, Sep 16: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Sunday said her party will agree to any alliance anywhere and in any election only if it gets a respectable share of seats. The BSP Chief dared to contest the upcoming elections alone. "We will agree to alliance anywhere & in any election only when we get a respectable share of seats, otherwise BSP will contest alone", Mayawati said.

While speaking on Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar referring to her as 'Buaji' (Aunt), the Former UP CM added saying that she is only related to common man and people from backward castes. "I have no relation with such people. I am only related to the common man, dalits, adivasis & people from backward castes", she was quoted by ANI.

According to a PTI report, terming mob lynching in the name of cow vigilantism as a "blot on democracy", Mayawati accused the BJP governments of laxity and indifference on the issue."The increasing tendency of indulging in mob lynching in the name of cow vigilantism in the BJP-ruled states is a blot on democracy, yet the governments are exercising laxity and are being indifferent to it," Mayawati told reporters.

While speaking at the press meet, the BSP supremo accused the BJP government of resorting to different diversionary tactics as 2019 Lok Sabha elections are approaching. She said the saffron party is making lucrative announcements and not leaving any stone unturned to derive advantage from the demise of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
