Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Wednesday said her party has decided to contest next year's Lok Sabha elections on its own in Uttar Pradesh as past experience shows that it doesn't gain anything from entering into an alliance.
Taking to X, previously know as Twitter, the BSP chief said that forming an alliance with the NDA doesn't arise. "NDA and India alliance are mostly parties with anti-poor casteist, communal, pro-Dhanna Seth and capitalist policies against whose policies BSP is continuously struggling and that is why the question of contesting elections in alliance with them does not arise. Hence appeal to the media - no fake news please," she wrote.She further said, "BSP, like in 2007, will single-handedly contest the upcoming Lok Sabha and four state assembly general elections by uniting crores of neglected/scattered society on the basis of mutual brotherhood rather than the jugaad/manipulation of the opponents. Media should not spread misconceptions again and again."
