Mayawati Rules Out Alliance With Congress For Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh Polls

Congress is under the misconception that they can defeat BJP on their own, she said in a press conference.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Wednesday announced that her party will not form an alliance with the Congress for the upcoming Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh elections.

Criticising the Congress, Mayawati said, "Congress, like the BJP, is conspiring to finish off our (BSP) party."

While announcing her decision, Mayawati lashed out at Congress leader Digvijay Singh and called him a BJP agent.

She, however, said that Rahul and Sonia Gandhi's intentions were honest and accused some Congress leaders of trying to "sabotage" the alliance.

In Chhattisgarh, Mayawati has formed an alliance with Ajit Jogi's Janta Congress Chhattisgarh.
