BSP-SP Grand Alliance On Shaky Ground

At a meeting of the BSP on Sunday to review its performances in last Lok Sabha elections on Monday, no decision concerning the future of its Grand Alliance with Samajwadi Party was taken, party sources said.

The sources also claimed that BSP supremo Maywati also hinted her party men to prepare for contesting Assembly by-polls in the state. Even though Mayawati praised SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav for their efforts, it looked doubtful if the by-polls would be fought in alliance with socialist party.

The meeting was chaired by party head Mayawati to accesses party’s poor performance in Uttar Pradesh in the recently held Lok Sabha elections.

Riding high on Modi-wave, BJP bagged 62 seats in Uttar Pradesh, while BSP and SP managed to bag only 10, 5 seats respectively. RLD drew a blank.

“It was a closed door review meeting, election results were discussed. It was analyzed why we lost, how we lost. Several issues including EVMs were discussed. No decision or discussion took place on the future of Gathbandhan,” said a party source.

Newly-elected BSP parliamentarians, Lok Sabha elections candidates, zone in-charges and district presidents took part in the meeting at the party’s office in the national capita.
