“Though the dates of the elections have not been announced as yet but the Prime Minister, like his party, are involved in misleading and wrong publicity,”she noted in a released statement.
“Prime Minister is doing this in view of the bad shape of his party in the state but by saying that BSP and SP are hand in glove he has made a mockery of himself” she BSP supremo added.

Mayawati made it clear that there had been no political communication at any level with her rival since the 1995 State Guest House Incident in which SP leadership had attacked her.
“Since then ,BSP has always opposed SP’s criminal face, work, and character and never paid heed to any political and electoral gain or loss in this regard,” BSP Chief Ministerial face said.
