The BSP is yet to declare its candidates for the 36 vacant seats in the Legislative Council, including Varanasi, which will go to polls on March 3.
Slamming the SP government over law and order situation in UP, BSP president Mayawati on Thursday said the ruling party has realised that it is not going to come back to power in the state.
The BJP ideology, which is based on casteism and Hindutva, has not yet changed and it seems to have broken all records of Dalit exploitation,” Mayawati told reporters here.
He joined the BJP on January 15, with five months to go for his Upper House term to expire on July 4.
Mayawati was persuaded by Kanshi Ram to join the Dalit movement.
Contending that atrocities against certain communities have increased after the Modi came to power, Mawayati said this government has “tolerated and encouraged” such offenders.
The BSP leader accused the BJP and Congress of “not doing enough for Dalits”.
Speaking to mediapersons on her 60th birthday, she said: “BJP, RSS and other Hindutva organisations are flaring communal passions.
“He (Modi) has started ‘natak’ (theatrics) like Delhi and Bihar but people here will not fall in his trap and in UP elections too BJP will have to face defeat,” Mayawati said.
Party leaders have been asked to put up TV screens in each district for live telecast of the event by news channels. BSP leaders have been asked to ensure gathering of 20,000- 25,000 in each district headquarter.
In 1995, she became the first Dalit woman chief minister in India and the youngest in UP at the age of 39.
The picture reportedly left Mayawati miffed, resulting in the cancellation of Sangeeta’s ticket

Mayawati also said that Samajwadi Party (SP) was spreading false “rumours” that her party will tie-up with BJP and claimed that it was SP which had joined hands with BJP.
Speaking in Rajya Sabha, Mayawati also took a dig at Modi’s meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former PM Manmohan Singh over tea to resolve the political deadlock over the GST bill.
