IS ALLIANCE BETWEEN MAYAWATI AND AKHILESH GOING TO DESTROY BJP?
The rival political parties in Uttar
Pradesh of Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav join hands as they both turned
partners-in-polls today. They announced their mega alliance in a press
conference which was conducted today.
“The press conference will give sleepless
night to both Narendra Modi and Amit Shah”, said both Mayawati and
Akhilesh in front of the camera.
The idea of this alliance came to both of them last year when they found that by taking up for the polls together, they would be unbeaten. After not getting votes in three seats including Yogi Adityanath’s Phulpur seat, they took their thought of alliance to next level i.e., The 2019 national polls.
Bahujan Samaj Party(BSP) will fight for 38 seats while Samajwadi Party (SP) will fight for 38 seats. While the two seats Amethi and Rae Bareli are left for Congress to conduct elections.
“I welcome the alliance of the SP and
the BSP for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections “, Mamata Banerjee tweeted.
Both SP and BSP had skipped oath-taking ceremonies of Congress’ chief ministers. It triggered speculations that everything is not well in the Opposition camp that is claiming to be confident to take on Narendra Modi in 2019.
An alliance between Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections is expected to be announced next month. The formal announcement will be made on Mayawati’s birthday on January 15, 2019. Rashtriya Lok Dal of Ajit Singh will also be a part of this alliance. Akhilesh and Mayawati have decided to keep room for OP Rajbhar as he can join the grand alliance. Rajbhar is presently a minister in the Yogi Adityanath government.
Both parties had virtually contested Uttar Pradesh by-polls together along with Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal. The BSP had extended its support to Akhilesh Yadav’s party candidates. The by-polls were held in May this year. SP had wrested both Phulpur and Gorakhpur from the BJP.
Days after Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi came under fresh controversies with his remarks on dynastic politics, BSP supremo Mayawati’s Meerut rally on Monday marked the launch of yet another political dynasty. In her first public meeting after the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Mayawati introduced brother Anand Kumar and his son Akash.
The Meerut rally also marked as the first public appearance of the former UP Chief Minister’s brother and nephew. According to sources close to the party, Anand and Akash had been attending almost all meetings held by Mayawati in the recent times.
Earlier, the Bahujan Samaj Party chief declared the appointment of her brother as the party’s national vice-president on April 14. However, Mayawati clearly stated that Anand would only help in party activities and won’t be contesting any election. In another meeting on April 25, Mayawati introduced her nephew Akash to the party leaders.
Ahead of the 2019 elections, Mayawati launched her election campaign on Monday at a rally in Meerut. Considered as a strong hold of BSP, Meerut was chosen for Mayawati’s first rally after the UP elections, with the four-time CM eying to mobilize the Dalits and the Muslims in the area.
At the rally, Mayawati took fresh dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, claiming that the Modi led central government has led the country into an era “worse than the Emergency”. And in an attempt to revive the spirit of her party workers, Mayawati said, “The situation in the country is worse than during the Emergency. In order to intimidate leaders of the Opposition and muzzle their voice, all the arms and agencies of the central government like Enforcement Directorate (ED), the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and Income Tax (IT) have been let loose on them.”
And with around one lakh people attending the BSP rally in Meerut, Dalit intellectual Dr Satish Prakash said, “But the real question is not attracting crowds at rallies but winning elections. And to win elections with an aggressive BJP and Modi at the helm, the BSP supremo needs to do a complete makeover in how she connects with her cadres and the language of her politics. She needs to go back to the way BSP started. She needs to hit the ground.”
The murmur of dissent and dissatisfaction among the Yogi Cabinet members are tumbling out in public domain thick and fast over the manner the Chief Minister is taking all decisions himself without consulting any ministers or giving them importance. While the newly elected Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath is going the whole hog to outshine any challenges coming from party disgruntled lot the Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya is feeling rather ignored and out of place in the present scheme of things. Winning state polls as BJP Pradesh President and an OBC face of the party, K P Maurya was a strong contender for the top slot and is feeling neglected and sidelined as the party insiders reveal that he may be sent to Centre to contain factionalism within the party.
Uttar Pradesh politics is rife with the speculation that K P Maurya has opposed to the move of sending him at Centre as he believes if he goes to Delhi he will be rendered irrelevant in the state politics. Secondly, he has consolidated his base as a factional leader who listens and sympathises with the dissenting voices against the Chief Minister’s high handiness. If sources are to be believed indications are that the Deputy CM has created a base of over 200 MLAs who support him for the cause of countering Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s behaviour towards party members.
According to top party sources, dissentient has reached to such level that the party General Secretary Sunil Bansal has brought the issue to BJP President Amit Shah to solve the containment among party brass. As per party strategy, K P Maurya will not vacate his Parliamentary seat Phulpur to be grabbed by BSP Supremo Mayawati, who is eying seat after resigning from Rajya Sabha. Party thinks by calling Maurya to Centre will fix both the vexing issues in one go. The move will quell the dissentient and factionalism in the state BJP and it will stall Mayawati’s chances of contesting from Phulpur if she so desires.
Both Yogi and Maurya are expected to vacate their seats as the Member of Parliament (MP) from Gorakhpur and Phulpur, respectively, to continue their terms in the state. With the conclusion of the Presidential elections and Ram Nath Kovind takes office as the President, the Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah is now focusing more on Uttar Pradesh where Adityanath and Maurya are set to face poll battles once again.
There have been widespread speculations that the BSP supremo might attempt to regain entry in the House by contesting the by-poll with a rare opposition alliance with Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress. However, BJP has refuted any such possibilities and has stated that there are no reasons for the saffron party to be concerned of, as the chances of Mayawati contesting the elections are very less. Senior party leaders claimed that while Mayawati always chooses to contest from a safe seat, she won’t be risking fighting from one of BJP’s stronghold, losing which might take her into political oblivion.
Over possibilities that the BJP might offer a ministerial berth to K P Maurya at the Centre and ask him to retain his seat as the MP from Phulpur, party Chief Amit Shah ruled out any chances of moving Maurya to Delhi. Stating all such claims as media speculations, Shah claimed that the Deputy CM will soon be relieved of his duties as the state President and will be allowed to work free from party responsibilities.

After getting shown the way out from Bahujan Samaj Party on carrying the “anti-party” activities, sacked MLC hit back at party supremo Mayawati on Thursday. In the revelation, Naseemuddin Siddiqui said that he was expelled from the party on false allegations.
The wounded and the injured and Naseemuddin Siddiqui hits back at BSP chief Mayawati. In the press conference, Naseemuddin Siddiqui alleges that Mayawati had demanded Rs 50crore from him to raise the party fund , “Behan Mayawati asked me for Rs 50cr for PartyFund but I said I cannot procure that much amount after selling my residence”. Playing the Dalit card, he requested to Dalit samaj to save the mission “I request Dalit Samaj to save the mission of Dalit Welfare from Satish and company”
Siddiqui said an earthquake would occur if he revealed Mayawati and BSP’s dirty secrets. “I will reveal them slowly but surely.”
In a big expose against Mayawati, Nassemuddin Siddiqui played a purported telephonic conversation between him and BSP chief Mayawati during the press conference.
Mishra had alleged that Siddiqui had taken money from candidates during the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections in which the BSP’s tally fell to an all-time low of 19.
He also accused Siddiqui, of being involved in several slaughter house businesses and holding many “benami” properties in different cities.
With the exit polls not giving the Samajwadi Party the best of chances in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has said that he is ready for a tie-up with the Bahujan Samaj Party.
In an interview with the BBC, Akhilesh has said that he is ready to tie-up with the BSP if the SP-Congress combine falls short of the majority mark in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2017.
Listen the audio here:
The announcement comes as a surprise since the SP and the BSP have been the main competitors in the state for the past 15 years. The SP had tied up with the Congress for the elections.
However, none of the exit polls are giving the SP-Congress alliance the edge in the elections. Most of the exit polls have predicted a big win for the BJP or a neck to neck fight. No party has however been given a huge majority in the exit polls which came out on Wednesday.
Mayawati’s influence over the party men was once again witnessed on Thursday when a few senior party leaders of Bahujan Samaj Party and family members of mafia-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari were seen barefoot at her party office in Lucknow, while ‘Behanji’ was wearing sandals.
Mayawati announced candidature of Quami Ekta Dal chief Mukhtar Ansari, his brother Sibakatulla Ansari and his son
Abbas Ansari for the UP Assembly elections right after inducting them in the party fold. Ansari kin also ditched their slippers at the party function.
Ansari was given the BSP ticket from Mau Sadar constituency, while brother Sibakatullah and son Abbas were given party tickets from Mohammadabad and Ghosi seats, respectively.
With the announcement of the elections date for 5 states due next month, the battle of the thrones in U.P has begun with Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati announcing the list of another 100 candidates that try their luck in the upcoming elections. Mayawati on Thursday had come up with the list of 100 candidates.
The BSP chief had said that she had finalised the names of candidates long ago and there will be no change in it. Alleging that minorities were facing bias under Modi government, Mayawati had cautioned Muslims that voting for SP or Congress will only help Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and sought their support “to stop” the saffron party. Muslims should not waste their vote as there is infighting in Samajwadi Party, and Congress lacks a voter base in Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati has said.
See the list:
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Thursday released the first list of 100 candidates for the upcoming assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.
The BSP, which happens to be the main opposition in election-bound Uttar Pradesh, had begun finalising its list of candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in the state but had said that the announcement will be made only after Election Commission proclaims the election schedule. The list features names of more than 36 Muslim candidates, 50 upper caste leaders and also sitting Samajwadi Party MLAs.
The BSP has begun its seat allocation from its traditional stronghold Agra.
