The coalition has been panned by many, especially those on the ground on the issue of unity and transfer of votes. The vote bank of BSP could be transferred to other parties. 

BSP president Mayawati earlier in February had claimed that the BSP-SP alliance has left the BJP's top leadership 'sleepless' and 'afraid', due to which the party curses the coalition in all its meetings. Mayawati's counter came hours after BJP president Amit Shah attacked the alliance at a meeting of booth-level workers in Aligarh.

"The BSP-SP alliance has not only made the BJP's top leadership sleepless but also afraid and they are out to curse it in all the big and small programmes," the BSP chief said in a party release.
