Jaipur, July 28: As the political drama in Rajasthan intensified, BSP Chief Mayawati slammed CM Ashok Gehlot over the merger of 6 BSP MLAs with Congress party. According to an ANI update, she said, "BSP could have gone to the court earlier too but we were looking for a time to teach Congress party and CM Ashok Gehlot a lesson. Now we have decided to go to the Court. We will go even to the Supreme Court."
Further accusing the CM, she said, "Unfortunately Gehlot, out of his malicious intent and to damage BSP, merged them with Congress unconstitutionally. He did the same even in his last tenure."
