BSP supremo Mayawati on Thursday said her party will form the next government in Uttar Pradesh, even as she warned her supporters of rival parties, which she claimed can go to any extend to mislead the people. “With the support of the ‘sarv samaj’ (public), BSP is sure of forming the next government but as BJP, SP and Congress are very good at instigating people with the help of their capitalist friends, there is a need to remain vigilant till the completion of the election process,” she said addressing a meeting of her party office bearers here.
The state goes to polls early next year. The BSP chief, who took stock of poll preparations and the party’s ongoing efforts to connect with the people, alleged that “newspapers and TV news channels owned by capitalists are working to create an atmosphere favourable to BJP, SP and Congress through poll surveys as these parties suit them more”.
Criticising the ruling Samajwadi Party, Mayawati said it was taking credit for the schemes initiated by her government by renaming them and claiming to be their own projects.
She also blamed the police and administration under the SP government for “mismanagement” which led to the stampede during her ‘Maharally’ in Lucknow on Sunday, claiming two lives.
