Mayawati Says, "Won't Ally With Congress At Any Cost," On State Polls 

New Delhi: The united opposition that was meant to take on the Bhartiya Janata Party in the upcoming general elections, has sustained a huge blow as Mayawati, the former CM declared that "under no circumstance" would she ally with the Congress for the coming elections in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.  She alleged, that the grand old party is still clinging on to its arrogance and does not want to "mend its ways".

She said that "The Congress party's 'arrogance' is now speaking and they feel that they can take on the BJP on their own. The truth is that the people are unwilling to forgive the Congress for their corrupt government."

At the press conference in the evening, the BSP leader at the press conference said that, "In Rajasthan and MP too, we will either ally with regional parties or fight alone, not with Congress".

Mayawati also said that the intention of Congress party is not to defeat BJP but to cause harm to friendly parties. "Congress is trying to defeat their partners instead of BJP," she said.

Mayawati said though she felt that Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi's intentions for the Congress-BSP alliance are honest, there are some Congress leaders who are sabotaging this.

"Congress leaders like Digvijaya Singh do not wish for a Congress-BSP alliance. They are afraid of agencies like the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation," she said.

The BSP chief had surprised the Congress by releasing a list of 22 candidates in Morena and Shivpuri; the region is the stronghold of Congress's campaign manager Jyotiraditya Scindia but Bahujan Samaj Party leaders say it is also within a Dalit belt in Madhya Pradesh.

Last month, Mayawati had also announced a tie-up for the Chhattisgarh polls with Ajit Jogi, who was expelled by the Congress in 2016 and is seen to have enough power for the party in a state it hoped to win after BJP's 15-year rule.

The Congress party has claimed that Mayawati is under intense pressure from the Bhartiya Janata Party not to join any opposition alliance.
