BSP to announce new leader of opposition today
Lucknow: Refusing to ever take Swami Prasad Maurya back in the party, the Bahujan Samaj Party Supremo Mayawati, on Satuirday, said that his exit would not affect party’s bonhomie with the backward castes like Maurya, Shakya, Saini and Kushwaha in any way.
Seeking to instill confidence among the backward communities of Uttar Pradesh, the BSP Supremo reiterated that the party would emerge stronger after Maurya and it was a good omen that he left.
Talking to media persons before all important meeting of BSP legislature party where the new leader of opposition was to be elected after Murya resigned, Mayawati said this was for everyone to see the fate of those who left the BSP at some point or another. ‘’ The party is too big to be impacted by random leaders leaving it,’’ she said.
The BSP President said she had nothing against the backward communities and they should not be punished for the wrong committed by Maurya by back-stabbing the party. ‘’It is gain of the party that such elements left us,’’ she asserted adding ‘’ those who work for their personal interests are of no use of the party.’’.
She said the meeting of the legislature party had been convened to elect new leader of opposition in the UP assembly which would be announced later in the day.
It may be recalled that Swami Prasad Maurya had left BSP, earlier this week, leveling serious allegations on Mayawati.
