Speaking to The Indian Express, Siddiqui said that the Rashtriya Bahujan Morcha will be a political outfit, but a decision on contesting polls will be taken during election time.
Siddiqui, whose expulsion has been followed by the resignation of many BSP leaders, speaks about his plans and the politics of the BSP.
Naseemuddin Siddiqui alleged that Mayawati had demanded Rs 50 crore from him after the party’s rout in the UP assembly elections.
Naseemuddin Siddiqui remained one of Mayawati’s closest aides for most of his career, three decades so far, until 2017 elections
BSP earlier removed him as the in-charge of Uttar Pradesh and was appointed the in-charge of Madhya Pradesh.
Alleging that the BJP would foment trouble in Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati said that atrocities against Dalits will be on the rise.
In most of the parties’ proposed pledges, women’s issues have been dwarfed in their importance and have barely received attention.
Mukhtar Ansari, who merged his party Quami Ekta Dal with Samajwadi Party last October, is currently lodged in Lucknow jail.
BJP’s vote share surprisingly increased from 31 per cent in October to 33 per cent in December, a clear indication that the scrapping of old high tender notes will bear no effect on the poll outcome.
BJP said that the move has severely affected the politicians-bureaucrats nexus.
Hailing demonetisation as “anti-poor” and “anti-farmer”, Mayawati had described the situation as “undeclared economic emergency”.
Applauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gadkari said his demonetisation move was in favour of the poor.
“The country needs to be strengthened. People are not happy with mere slogans, their concern is about the country being strengthened,” he was quoted saying.
“There is nothing wrong with the film. BSP supports it,” Mayawati said when her comments were sought by mediapersons in Lucknow.
He is a former MP from Ferozepur and represented the constituency in 1992 and 1996.
