BSP gears up for UP 2022 polls

Earlier, BSP president Mayawati had declared that her party will contest all elections “small and big” on its own in the future, signalling the end of the much-discussed Bahujan Samaj Party-Samajwadi Party alliance forged for the Lok Sabha elections. This announcement was made after she held a meeting with party workers to review the BSP’s performance in the recent Lok Sabha polls.

She had tweeted,  'Everyone is aware that forgetting everything of the past as also the anti-BSP and anti-Dalit decisions like reservation in promotions and bad law and order during the SP rule in 2012-2017, BSP adhered to the gathbandhan dharma with the Samajwadi Party in the interest of the country.'
