Lucknow: BSP chief Mayawati on Friday said the Samajwadi Party’s decision to contest the next Uttar Pradesh assembly polls with the help of smaller parties reflects its “helplessness” as major parties have been avoiding it due to their “bitter” experience.

Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav has ruled out an alliance with any major political party in the 2022 assembly polls and has openly said his party will go with smaller parties.

Taking a swipe at the SP, Mayawati said in a tweet in Hindi that, “In view of the bitter experiences with the Samajwadi Party due to its very selfish, narrow and especially anti-Dalit thinking and working style, all prominent and major parties avoid it (SP). This is well know”.

“That is why in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly election, this party will not fight with any major party but only with the help of an alliance with smaller parties. If saying this is not the helplessness of SP, then what is it,” she asked.

On Thursday, the Samajwadi Party chief and former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav said that his party will form an alliance with small political parties. “Samajwadi Party is going to form an alliance with small political parties,” the SP chief was quoted by ANI.

According to him, the people of Uttar Pradesh want to change now. “People will vote for change,” Yadav said. Taking a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led state government, he said that BJP has dumped its manifesto in the garbage bin. “Since the day, BJP formed the government (in UP) it has forgotten its manifesto. I think BJP has thrown its manifesto in the garbage,” said the party chief.

“BJP does not want to hold a debate on real matters like unemployment, inflation,” concluded the SP chief. Earlier, Akhilesh Yadav had said that the 2022 UP Assembly polls will usher in a democratic revolution in the state.
